The Phillies named their Wall of Fame nominees, and … well … dig the ’90s:
Pitchers Jack Baldschun, Ricky Bottalico, Larry Christenson, Gene Garber, Jim Konstanty and Rick Wise; catcher Darren Daulton; infielders John Kruk and Fred Luderus; outfielders Lenny Dykstra, Doug Glanville, Greg Gross, Von Hayes and Roy Thomas; and manager Jim Fregosi.
Going by my 100 Greatest Phillies, Luderus would be the top inductee for 2009. But I can’t see him getting one of the top five fan votes; instead, I see Kruk, Dykstra, Daulton, Konstanty and Gross. I think. Who knows. Curt Schilling is still a few years away.
