MLB a little fun - Phogge - 02-22-2021

I've been reading Top Ten lists today. What are your Top Ten all time?

Mine:

1 Ruth
2 Mays
3 Cobb
4 Williams
5 Bonds
6 Gehrig
7 Walter Johnson
8 Hornsby
9 Spahn
10 Aaron

Musial would be 10.5

Pretty ballsy putting Bonds in your top ten! (Especially top 5). Putting the issue of PEDs aside, he probably was one of the top five to ten most dominant players of all time.

"Putting the issue of PEDs aside" is doing a lot of work there.  Like, I get that Bonds was dominant even before he was known to have become involved with BALCO, but I do wonder where he would have wound up in the all-time pantheon had he not used PEDs.

Bobbbbb, you and I are the only ones who remember Ted Beard. The best hitters in the PCL when we were kids were Bob Dellinger, Max West, DePietro and Joe Brovia. For power nobody beat Bilko except for Luke Easter and he played far fewer games.


RE: MLB a little fun - BobK - 02-22-2021

In 1952 with the Hollywood Stars the 5-8 Beard hit 4 HRs in one game. He was also near the top in steals for several years in The PCL. Teddy played with the Seals 1955-56

Of course I could have named Ellis Kinder

Poor Cy Young. 511 wins and no respect :)


RE: MLB a little fun - BobK - 02-23-2021

Chet Johnson. A clown on the mound. Won 22 games with the Seals 1950. A fact I didn’t know until now. 5 years with the Sacramento Solons in the 50s

Ten MLB Career Leaders that I would pay to see:

1. Babe Ruth.  I want him to pitch and catch.
2. Josh Gibson.  Buck Weaver said that only Josh and the Babe made the sound when baseball met bat in which you absolutely knew that one or the other was at the plate.
3.  Ty Cobb.  Only Triple Crown winner to lead league in stolen bases when he won the Triple Crown.
4.  Joe Jackson.  #2 best hitter for average in MLB history.
5.  Pete Rose.  MLB hits leader.
6.  Barry Bonds.  MLB HR leader, BB leader and IBB leader.
7.  Sandy Koufax.  Perfect game, 3x unanimous Cy Young award winner (when a single CY Young was awarded for one league).
8.  Ricky Henderson.  MLB stolen base leader.
9.  Carl Hubbell.  I want to see King Carl-- or anyone else -- strike out six Hall of Famers in a row (Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, Al Simmons, Joe Cronin and Lefty Gomez.  Yes, I know the last one is a pitcher). Winner of 24 consecutive games, still a record.
10. Ted Williams.  MLB OPS leader and if he hadn't lost five full seasons in two separate wars, he would have been the most amazing hitter in history.

And the ten I'd really pay to see:

1. Willie Mays
2. Barry Bonds
3. Christy Mathewson
4. Willie McCovey
5. Carl Hubbell
6. Mel Ott
7. Buster Posey
8. Frankie Frisch
9. Juan Marichal
10. Brandon Crawford

Interesting that 3 was an jerk, 4-6 are, shall we say, controversial (and one or more may also be a-holes).
