Our All-Time Top 50 St. Louis Cardinals have been revised

Our All-Time Top 50 St. Louis Cardinals have been revised
19 Mar
Not in Hall of Fame

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 St. Louis Cardinals 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 are two new additions, but neither are active players.  As always, we announce our top five immediately, but out full list can be found here.

1. Stan Musial

2. Albert Pujols

3. Rogers Hornsby

4. Bob Gibson

5. Ozzie Smith

There was some minor tinkering on the list due to the changing values from Baseball Reference.

Only one active Cardinal,Yadier Molina, moved up a spot to #13.

With the changes of Baseball Reference’s advanced stats, two Pitchers, Steve Carlton, and Slim Sallee replace Tim McCarver and Jesse Burkett respectively at #49 and #50.

We welcome your input and commentsand as always, we thank you for your support.
