Great list. I'm on mobile, so no ctrl f, but what about Eric Anthony, Daryle Ward, Julio Lugo and Ricky Gutierrez?
Chad Qualls? Reddick also should be in the list because he was a fan favorite with the WOO!

I gotta tell you, I didn't see many people being upset that Ricky Gutierrez didn't make the list. Should I add Phil Plantier and Craig Shipley while I'm at it?

How could you forget Phil Plantier?? Where is Mike Lamb?

I should have used the winking face on the post because I was joking.

But seriously, great list.

I like 3 foot 6 Matt Galante going nuts at first base.

If you have a favorite player I left off to nominate please do, going to try to do the group phase tomorrow.

Bump for the finals and consolation of best moments as well, both are way closer than I thought they would be so far.

Favorite player bracket is now live.

No red, no blue. Just Orange.

112 candidates divided into 28 groups by random number generator. Each group named for a poster from the best moments and off-season threads. Vote for your favorites! Top 64 will move on to a traditional 4 region bracket starting tomorrow-ish. I vow not to abruptly stop counting votes at 11:30 p.m.

Enjoy the ride!

VOTE NOW
