Mike Sweeney is one of the all-time good guys of the Kansas City Royals in terms of dugout presence, community involvement and just being a quality human being.  More importantly (for this list anyway) he was a pretty solid player.

A five time All Star, Sweeney put up some good solid offensive numbers.  Sweeney would hit at least 20 Home Runs six times and was a .300 hitter five times, finishing as high as .333 where he was 11th in MVP voting.  Sweeney’s overall offensive numbers showed 1,398 Hits, 197 Home Runs with a .299 Batting Average.  His ranking would likely be a little higher if his defensive skills weren’t sub-par.
