Would he get my vote?

 

No. He was unbelievable from 1984-1986, very good from 1987-1989, and then just very ordinary from 1990-1995. His peak was just too short and back problems took away his power as he hit over 20 homeruns only once in the final eight years of his career. He was an excellent defensive first baseman but there's only so much of a bonus you can give for first base defense.

What sitcom was Mattingly on? I think you might be thinking of Keith Hernandez who was featured in a two part episode of Seinfeld.

 

Incidentally enough the prior entry, Paul O'Neill, had a cameo in a Seinfeld episode as well.
