Eddie Murray is one of the greatest baseball players of my lifetime even though his careers started before '79. Could have worded the excerise better or at least chaned the standards for qualifications. Maybe anyone who played the majority or all of their career after '80.
I hear you. It's tough to determine a proper cutoff so we just started with the years of our birth. I certainly didn't want to get into anything where we'd only be considering part of a guys career because that's silly and overly complex imo.
I also think that most guys that had their career start before '79 and would be considered for this, had their best years before myself and probably Rob really personally remember watching them, at least somewhat intelligently. Murray for instance wasn't that great for the most part from '87 on. He also would be very borderline for this list imo.
