Trivia question to pass the time on a lazy Friday




It's the slowest Friday of the year, and I see no reason to even pretend to work. So here is a trivia question to help pass the time until you can go home.

There are a dozen players who had at least 100 HR and 100 SB in their career, and had a HR total that was within 5 of their SB total. Who are they? It's an odd assortment of guys with balanced offensive profiles from a variety of eras.

Clues...

1. Career 300/300 club, this OF had a vagabond 2nd half of his career

2. Pretty good ballplayer with talents dwarfed by those of the rest of the dynasty infield he played with early on

3. An active player once traded for a platoon 1B (whose platoon partner was the son of a teammate of #2)

4. Primarily a 3B, two time allstar, once led the NL in HR

5. This HOF'er spent his entire career with one team and had a remarkable run of 7+ BB-Ref WAR each year from age 30-34

6. One of two power/speed OF to begin career with the same NL team in 1990

7. This HOF OF was traded mid-career in the middle of a season for another mid-career HOF OF

8. A long-career cromulent SS, not much power or speed, never had an OPS+ of 100 or more

9. 1st pick by the Seattle Mariners in the 1976 expansion draft, probably their best player in 1977

10. Goggle wearing third-baseman debuted late, faded fast, but was ROY and three-time All-Star

11.The second active player, he had a 2nd place finish in MVP voting

12.The third active player, though you could reasonably have severe doubts about whether or not he counts as active
