44. Darrell Evans

Darrell Evans had a very good career that began in Atlanta where he would be named an All Star in 1973.  Evans arrived as a Rule 5 Pick from the Athletics in 1968 and he would work his way slowly to become the teams starting Third Baseman.  Evans cemented himself as the starting Third Baseman in 1972 and in the next two seasons he would lead the National League in Walks while putting up good power numbers.  His 1973 season would see Evans hit 41 Home Runs with 104 Runs Batted In and it was as a Brave that he had his best defensive numbers.

80. Darrell Evans

Talk about being forgotten.  Darrell Evans is one of the few eligible players to hit more than 400 Home Runs and not get elected to the Hall of Fame.  He actually never made it past the first ballot.  He only made the All Star Team twice.  He was a great fielder but Mike Schmidt won all the Gold Gloves at third.  He won a World Series with Detroit but was overshadowed by Whitaker, Trammell, Morris and Hernandez.  A lot of this may have happened because he had a lifetime Batting Average of .248.
