He's certainly not my favorite, but Bryan Shaw was mostly disliked by the fanbase despite being pretty damn solid

Over his 5 years with the Indians: he averaged 76 appearances per season & 72 innings per season to a 3.11 ERA. Those numbers are pretty remarkable given the volatility of relief pitchers

David Justice seems to always be forgotten about when the 90s teams are brought up.

.294/.392/.526 split in 3.5 seasons, averaged 27 HRs, 95 RBI, 85 R, 3.1 WAR a season. Monster run producer dropped into a lineup that was already full of them, was a perfect fit.

I went as David Justice for Halloween when I was 10 and insisted on shaving my head to look like him.

I got so much candy that year, and in hindsight, I think it's because everybody thought that I had cancer.

Sexson wasn't a bad player but went to the basement when he hit 33. I mean we did trade him a season after he hit 30 HRs.

My dad really like Brian Giles and wasn't happy when we got rid of him for Rincon. I don't blame him since Giles ended up career wise a very legit player.

Sexson was good for the Brewers and D-Backs, but in hindsight, he sucked for us. Both seasons he was a starter he had a wRC+ under 100.

He also accumulated less than 1 WAR in 279 games with the Tribe. He was sitting at -0.4 WAR with a wRC+ of 90 when we dealt him to Milwaukee.

Shaw was my #1 pick, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say Carlos Santana.

Don’t really see it a ton here, but before his breakout campaign last season, a lot of casual fans on Twitter seemed to constantly have him in their crosshairs because they’d only look at BA.

Santana is a good pick. He had his detractors around here as well.

Ellis Burks
Ellis was a really cool guy. Remember one game, he was signing autos and my brother gave him his ticket to sign. The ticket price was $26. Ellis saw the price and while signing, "Damn, they must be paying us alot of money if tickets cost this much"

Not just twitter, but here as well. I love Carlos and so glad we have him back.
