An incredible group. There practically was no such thing as an infield hit when these guys were on the field.

This group should be ranked near the top. Yount had his MVP year. Molitor had a typical Hall of Famer's season. Cooper was an outstranding player. Gantner had a 17 year career.

1980 Philadelphia Phillies Report Abuse

Actually, the '79 team was better defensively. Bowa set a then-SS record .991 fielding percentage and Trillo was excellent as well. Schmidt had a slight down year. The weak link was Rose.

No, by this point Bowa and Rose were old and slow and no longer the useful bats they once possessed. They were barely replacement level. Schmidt was great and Trillo was good, but that should not put them in this class.

1993 Detroit Tigers Report Abuse
Cecil Fielder (1B), Lou Whitaker (2B), Travis Fryman (SS) and Scott Livingstone (3B)

Comments:
The 1990 Tigers infield was clearly better. Fielder had his career year. Hall of Fame deserving Whitaker and Trammell were much better - closer to their prime. Both infields had a prime Tony Phillips - a vastly superior player to Livingstone. Plus, both had Fryman, who in 1990 impressed in his rookie season.
