The 10 greatest Angels of all time, No. 4: Garret Anderson

We recently asked you to list your choices for the 10 greatest Angels of all time. We received 993 ballots. Each weekday morning, a new person will be listed as we count down all 10.

Remember, any Angel was eligible, including managers, owners, announcers, etc. Points were assigned based on where you listed the person on the ballot. Your first choice received 12 points, second choice 10, third place eight, all the way down to one point for 10th place.

So without further ado, here is No. 4:

No. 4: Garret Anderson (46 first-place votes, 4,422 points)

How is Garret Anderson only fourth on this list? He is the Angels' team leader in games played, at bats, hits, total bases, singles, doubles, extra-base hits and RBIs.

In 2002, when the Angels won their first World Series, Anderson finished fourth in MVP voting with a .306 average, 29 home runs and 123 RBIs.

Anderson was a three-time all-star with the Angels. After a poor 2008 season, the Angels announced that they would decline their $14-million option on his contract.
