Mike Sweeney
Playing for the lowly Kansas City Royals for the bulk of his career, Mike Sweeney was one of the few bright spots they had. A five time All Star, Sweeney showcased decent power and managed 144 RBIs in the 2000 campaign. We severely doubt that Sweeney will even reach one percent in his first year of eligibility for the Hall, but we do think that Kansas City should honor him in some capacity.

13. Mike Sweeney

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.
