|102||Mickey Cochrane||C 12||Willie Stargell||LF 9|
|103||Sam Crawford||RF 10||Al Simmons||LF 10|
|104||Al Simmons||LF 10||Ernie Banks||SS 11|
|105||Frankie Frisch||2B 11||Ron Santo||3B 9|
|106||Enos Slaughter||RF 11||Manny Ramirez||LF 11|
|107||Paul Molitor||3B 8||George Davis||SS 12|
|108||Hank Greenberg||1B 12||Tom Glavine||P 22|
|109||Dave Winfield||RF 12||Don Sutton||P 23|
|110||Ernie Banks||SS 11||Lou Whitaker||2B 12|
I talked before how some of these slipped out of the top 100. Mickey Cochrane went from 121 to 102. He got credit for doing a lot in a short career. This was impressive as the only bonus he got was the catcher bonus and his MVP award. I feel better about his overall rankings now. Al Simmons only switched one slot.
Enos Slaughter moved passed Dave Winfield for rightfield and up 5 slots overall. Those two are close and could go either way depending on how you like them or what you think are important. I’m not surprised that Greenberg moved up as he had a short career with a great prime. His prime became more important. Ernie Banks went down 6 places, mainly because he wasn’t the greatest defensive player and WAR puts more emphasis on defense. Most of the players above went down but not that far down so we will discuss them when they get to their new ranking.
