Although Andruw Jones was once classified as a defensive specialist, it is one-dimensional to think of him only that way. Granted, Jones captured ten straight Gold Glove Awards and also led the National League in Defensive bWAR four times and is second all-time in Total Zone Runs with six straight seasons (1997-03), but he also had an offensive acumen that has to be respected, which included 434 career Home Runs, a Home Run and RBI Title in 2005, which certainly pushed up his career bWAR of 62.8, a number that is not far off the Cooperstown threshold.

Andruw should be much higher on your list. I think the only reason he is not considered is because he lacked longevity and fell off in his last few years. However, for a 10 year stretch he was the undisputed best CF in baseball. Willie Mays said that he was the best outfielder he had ever seen.
