I'm surprised that Joe Medwick and Lou Brock aren't on this list

I just looked up Lou Brock's stats. He had some solid seasons in his early career. Later, he was more of a showhorse with a good batting average and flashy stolen base numbers but little else.

He gets knocked for having no power in the later half of his career. He was also a below average defender at an easy position (LF).

For all his base-stealing he got caught stealing a lot. In his age 38 season he stole 35 bases but got caught 24 times.

Nevertheless he had 41.7 WAR for the Cardinals, good enough for #13th all-time.
