I was born in 1979 so my favorite Cardinals are:

- Willie McGee
- John Tudor
- Ozzie Smith
- Jim Edmonds
- Yadi Molina
- Matt Morris
You skipped Jim Lindeman.

Yeah, tales of Joe Hague had become the stuff of legend by that point.

Is it weird that we had one of the greatest hitters of all time for 11 seasons, and most of us still are not taking him over Edmonds?

(Don’t get me wrong - I’m drafting Edmonds before him too.)

No doubt Albert was better than Edmonds, at least when he was here. Albert was arguably better than anyone for, what, his first ten years or so? But if I'm picking favorites I think of Edmonds first. Albert might be in a top 5 of mine but I know he frustrated me a lot more often than Edmonds did during that period.
