Dodgers re-sign veteran Chase Utley, add Franklin Gutierrez

Manny produced a career offensive WAR of 81.2; McGwire was at 64.8, Palmeiro at 66.7 and Sosa at 49.6. But you probably didn’t need a reminder of Manny’s no-doubt Hall statistics, or that he’d already hit 527 homers and had a 1.004 career OPS before that 2009 suspension.
