Ken Caminiti – 1996 National League MVP

Ken Caminiti was a three time Gold Glove Third Baseman with a career fielding percentage of .946 at the hot corner. Ten of his 15 years in major league baseball were played with the Houston Astros where he recorded a 5.3 career Defensive WAR, 6th all time among Astros position players. His 546 RBI’s as an Astro place him 9th all time in team history, his 204 doubles puts him at 10th, and his 659 strikeouts is 8th most in Astro history.

Caminiti’s three consecutive Gold Gloves are tarnished by the use of performance enhancing drugs. Caminiti is ranked among the top 25 steroid users in MLB history. To his credit, he was also the first MLB player to admit to using PEDs in a Sports Illustrated article with Tom Verducci. Sadly, drug and alcohol abuse contributed to a 2004 fatal heart attack at just 41 years of age.

Dave Justice: Post-season appearances in 10 years of 14-year career

 

Dave Justice, the 1990 National League Rookie of the Year, played for four different teams during his 14-year career, the Braves, Indians, Yankees, and A’s,  and helped all but the A’s make it to the World Series at least once.  Justice played in 6 World Series, but his 36 games does not even get him into the 10 Ten All Time. However, in the League Championship Era of Major League baseball – 1968 to the present – Justice appears in the top 5 of several batting categories. He played in 8 league championship series, four times each on American and National League teams. His 46 career LCS games rank him third behind Derek Jeter and Manny Ramirez. His 166 career LCS at bats rank him behind Jeter, Ramirez, and Kenny Lofton. His 27 LCS career RBI ties him with Albert Pujols for fourth behind Bernie Williams, Ramirez, and David Ortiz.
