Our All-Time Top 50 St. Louis Cardinals have been revised to reflect the 2021 Season

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 our pre-2022 revision of our top 50 St. Louis Cardinals.

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.

The Cardinals earned a Wild Card berth in the playoffs, but lost in that round.  With a team as old and successful as St. Louis, little movement occurred in our top 50, none in the top five, and there were no new entries.

As always, we present our top five.

1. Stan Musial

2. Albert Pujols

3. Rogers Hornsby

4. Bob Gibson

5. Ozzie Smith

You can find the entire list here.

Pitcher, Adam Wainwright moved up one spot to #11.

It is worth noting that Catcher, Yadier Molina, who announced that 2022 will be his final season, did not climb up any spot in 2021, and remains at #13.

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