3. Playoff accomplishments.

4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

There is one new addition on out Top 50, but nothing affecting our top five.  As always, we announce them here.

They are:

1. Robin Yount                                

2. Paul Molitor

3. Ryan Braun 

4. Cecil Cooper

5. Teddy Higuera

The St. Louis Cardinals announce five candidates for their Hall of Fame

The St. Louis Cardinals have announced the five former players who fans can vote for to enter their franchise Hall of Fame.

Those players are:

Steve Carlton, Pitcher: 1965-71, 77-62, 3.10 ERA, 1.28 WHIP. Carlton’s career began in St. Louis, where he debuted in 1965, and became a full-time member of the starting rotation in 1967.  He would be named to the All-Star Team in 1968, 1969 and 1971, the last of which saw “Lefty” win 20 Games.  Carlton entered the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994.

Keith Hernandez, First Base:  1974-83, .299/.385/.448, 1,217 H, 81 HR, 595 RBI.  Hernandez was the co-winner of the 1979 MVP in a year that he won the Batting Title (.344), and led the NL in Doubles (48) and Runs Scored (116).  A two-time All-Star as a Cardinal, Hernandez would also earn six Gold Gloves and one Silver Slugger in St. Louis.

Matt Morris, Pitcher:  1977-2005, 101-62, 3.61 ERA, 1.27 WHIP.  Morris went to two All-Star Games in St. Louis, and he was 14 shy of 1,000 Strikeouts with the team.  Morris led the NL in Wins in 2001, and was third in Cy Young voting that year.

Edgar Renteria, Shortstop:  1999-2004, .290/.347/.420, 973 H, 71 HR, 451 RBI.  Renteria went to three All-Star Games in St. Louis, and in 2002 and 2003 won both the Silver Slugger and Gold Glove.  

Lee Smith, Pitcher:  1990-93, 160 Saves, 2.90 ERA, 1.15 WHIP.  Smith was not with the Cardinals for long, but he led the league in Saves twice.  A three-time All-Star in St. Louis, Smith was the runner-up for the Cy Young in 1991.  Smith was chosen for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2019.

The leading vote-getter will be the lone inductee for the Class of 2021.  That person will be honored on April 17, along with 2020 inductees, Tom Herr, John Tudor and Bill White.

You can vote for this year’s class here.

The Cardinals Hall of Fame was created in 2014, and had s quickly become one of our favorite franchise halls.

RIP: Bunny Wailer

We have lost a musical legend today.

Bunny Wailer, who founded the iconic reggae group, the Wailers, passed away at the age of 73.  No cause of death was announced.

Born, Neville Livingstone, Wailer, along with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh were the Wailers, and they would elevate reggae to become world known.  Like Marley and Tosh, Wailer had his own individual success when he left the group.  

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the fans, friends and family of Bunny Wailer.

295. Herman Moore

A dynamic offensive weapon for the Lions in the 1990s, Herman Moore would twice lead the National Football League in Receptions.  Moore may have been overshadowed by Barry Sanders, but Moore was a four-time Pro Bowl selection who had over 1,000 Yards in each of those campaigns.  He held all of the major franchise receiving records until they were broken by Calvin Johnson.

236. Jim David

Known as “The Hatchet” (which is reason enough to rank him on any football list), the small framed Cornerback was one of the most punishing tacklers of his day and a major cog in the wheel of those three NFL Championship Teams in the 1950’s.  It is definitely worth noting that Jim David recorded an Interception in all three of those Lions NFL Championships.  Seriously, how impressive is that!

222. Wayne Walker

Out of the state of Idaho, Wayne Walker would spend all of his fifteen seasons in the NFL as a Detroit Lion and was a very rare dual threat as a Linebacker and Place Kicker.  Walker was a three-time Pro Bowl selection who would be named the team’s Defensive MVP in 1968.  Walker had 14 career Interceptions, and might be the most underrated player in Lions history.
