I gave Cal Ripkin a bonus for his playing streak which moved him past Alex Rodriguez and up 5 spaces. Rodriguez with his steroid penalty went down 5 spaces and 1 at shortstop. Warren Spahn moved up 1 despite having a long career. He passed Clemons as Clemons had a steroid penalty and didn’t get any bonuses. To finish ninth was impressive.

Bob Gibson moved into the top 10 pitchers. He replace Steve Carlton. Carlton faded to the 13th best pitcher. He had some mediocre years between some of his good years so, I’m okay with that.

Jimmy Foxx and Nap Lajoie faded a little. Clutch statistics weren’t available for much of Lajoie’s career and that hurt him. However, I feel he is rated a little better now.
