Um, where is Chipper Jones?

This is a good idea for a quiz, but you kind of butchered the explanation and made it really confusing. Get rid of the bit about some of them in the HOF and some not, it doesn't really matter who is or isn't in the HOF when it is a WAR quiz, and mentioning it is confusing. Be sure to also mention that this is only for RETIRED players (if indeed it is exhaustive, because Chipper Jones). Something like "Can you pick the Top 12 retired career WAR leaders at 3B?" would be perfect.

The list wasn't meant to be comprehensive; I left Chipper Jones out because, of the non-HoF third basemen, he seemed rather obviously in the top group. I have rephrased the explanation to deemphasize the HoF aspect--fair point. But my object here was not to put down the top 24 third basemen by WAR and have the player choose the top half; it was to put down 24 of the top third basemen. I used the twelve HoF'ers because the HoF has done a particularly lousy job choosing third basemen; only seven of the twelve are in the top twelve eligible third basemen, and most of the rest aren't all that close (and weren't when they were tapped). (And, incidentally, also in the top 12 would be active player Scott Rolen.)
