Default Al Lopez

Al Lopez thought Joe Gordon was a better ballplayer than Nellie Fox. He thought Gordon should of been in the Baseball HOF before Fox. Gordon wound up getting into the HOF years after Fox got in. I don't agree of his assessment of the two players, but if thats how he felt, so be it. It's similar to my feelings about Ron "The Scab" Santo getting into the HOF before Dick Allen. Nobody will ever tell me "The Scab" was a better player than Dick Allen. Yet Santo is in the HOF today and Dick Allen isn't.
