2. Rafael Palmeiro

With two productive stints with the Texas Rangers, Rafael Palmeiro was not a flashy player, but always put up consistent hitting and power numbers that put Palmeiro amongst the top of the list in most offensive categories.  As a Ranger, Palmeiro blasted 321 Home Runs with a Slugging Percentage of .519 and 1,692 Hits of his 3,000 plus were in Texas.  Had Palmeiro been an Outfielder with his production he would likely have made more All Star Games.

The Top 50 Texas Rangers of All-Time are up

Shall we continue

We think so too!

The next North American franchise, that we will look at in regards to the Top 50 of All-Time are the Texas Rangers.  The Rangers have yet to win the World Series but they have been very competitive as of late and are a solid contender to win the big one in upcoming years.

You can click here to get the entire list here but here is a sneak preview of the top five:

1.  Ivan Rodriguez

2.  Rafael Palmeiro

3.  Juan Gonzalez

4.  Buddy Bell

5.  Jim Sundberg


Up next are the Green Bay Packers, one of the most celebrated sports teams of any discipline.



Look for that soon and as always we thank you for your support!

Our Top 50 All-Time Texas Rangers has been revised

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity.  As such, we are very happy to present the first revision of our top 50 Texas Rangers of all-time.

As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following: 

  1. Advanced Statistics.
  1. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.
  1. Playoff accomplishments.
  1. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories, which has altered the rankings considerably.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2018 Season.

The complete list can be found herebut as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

  1. Ivan Rodriguez
  1. Rafael Palmeiro
  1. Juan Gonzalez
  1. Adrian Beltre
  1. Frank Howard

There is a significant shift in many of the players and a few new ones based on shuffling of the metrics we have used for our Top 50s.

As always we thank you for your support.

Awards = HOF? Part Six: The Silver Slugger (First Base) (MLB)

We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential.

Needless to say, different awards in different sports yield hall of fame potential.  In basketball, the team sport with the least amount of players on a roster, the dividend for greatness much higher.  In baseball, it is not as much as a great individual season does not have the same impact.

Awards = HOF? Part Twelve: The Silver Slugger (Designated Hitter) (MLB)

We here at Notinhalloffame.com thought it would be fun to take a look at the major awards in North American team sports and see how it translates into Hall of Fame potential.

Awards = HOF? Part Twenty-Four: Gold Glove First Base

We are now taking a look at the Gold Glove Award, given annually to the best defensive player in MLB in each respective position.

19. Rafael Palmeiro

At the time of the infamous steroids trial, Rafael Palmeiro seemed to come off so good.  Of course when you are sitting next to a man who suddenly suffered from amnesia (Mark McGwire), a man who suddenly forgot the English language (Sammy Sosa) and the man who broke the “bro code” (Jose Canseco) a defiant and confident sounding Rafael Palmeiro could not help but look good.  A few months later, Palmeiro was suspended by Major League Baseball for testing positive for steroids.
