You have to wonder if lefty swinging 1B Rafael Palmeiro was legit when he played with the Texas Rangers. After all, he failed a drug test for PEDs shortly after he waved his finger on Capitol Hill telling congress that he never used them! Even if it was a mirage, Palmeiro was pretty awesome in his time with the Texas Rangers. He played in 1,573 games in his 10 years with the Rangers and he was 1,692 of 5,830 (.290 avg, .897 OPS) with 958 runs scored, 321 homers, 1,039 RBIs and 44 stolen bases! His best year for the Rangers are in 1999, when he played in 158 games in which he was 183 of 565 (.324 avg, 1.050 OPS) with 96 runs scored, 47 homers, 148 RBIs and 2 stolen bases! He was only an All-Star twice with the Rangers and he won 1 Gold Glove. He has 100 or more RBIs in six of his ten years with the Rangers! He also hit 37 or more homers six times and 40 or more homers three times in his 10 years with the Rangers. Palmeiro is currently still #2 in Rangers’ history in games played (1,573), runs scored (958), homers (321) and RBIs (1,039). He is also the Rangers’ all-time leader in walks with 805 of them. Palmeiro is also #3 in hits (1,692), tied for #16 in batting average (.290), #6 in OBP (.378), #5 in SLG (.519), #5 in OPS (.897), #3 in doubles (321), tied for #8 in triples (25) and he is tied for #33 in stolen bases (44). Despite having 3,020 hits and 569 homers in his Major League career, I don’t think Palmeiro will ever get into Baseball’s Hall of Fame.
