You could create an entirely new category which I think would be fair, call it UTILITY PLAYERS, then break that one down according to elite performances over a career, certainly Red Kelly would come to mind immediately.
For the purposes of this project, I honestly don't care about "why" a player was good. It's an interesting part of history to explore, but doesn't determine his ranking. For his ranking, I just care about how good he was. So I agree with eva's post 182.
