Bagwell won the 1991 ROY, the 1994 MVP, and made 4 all-star games. He was also reliable defensively, picking up a gold glove award in '94 (although that tells you far less than just watching him navigate the astroturf did.)

Bagwell's career WAR of 76.7 ranks 38th all-time among hitters. And, for the Bill James fans out there, he ranks Bagwell as the 4th best first baseman of all-time.

Very happy with this pick.
I'm also pretty sure he's the only 1B to ever have a 30/30 season and he had 2 of them.
