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 pre-2021 update of our top 50 Atlanta Braves of all-time.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
There is one new addition, but not an active player. As always, we announce our top five immediately, but out full list can be found here.
1. Hank Aaron
2. Warren Spahn
3. Kid Nichols
4. Greg Maddux
There was minor tinkering on the list due to the changing values from Baseball Reference.
One major jump took place as Freddie Freeman, the reigning MVP, rocketed from #19 to #13.
We have a significant debut, albeit from a player who hasn’t played in over a century. Jack Stivetts, who was an excellent hitting Pitcher arrives at #40. We had forgotten to take account his competent batting, which accounts for his high rank.
We welcome your input and commentsand as always, we thank you for your support.
