New, 6 comments

We have our first upset! Or is it?

Dick Howser After Losing World Series

We continue on in our bracket of the most beloved players in franchise history. We divided 64 players into four eras - The Herzog era (1969-1980), the Howser era (1981-1994), the Muser era (1995-2010), and the Yost era (2011-2019).

You can see how the first round for the Howser bracket went here.

You can still vote on the first round for the Muser bracket, and the Yost bracket. You can vote on the second round of the Herzog bracket here.
