    Re: If you had to pick three outfielders

    Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ted Williams... done and done.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Mays, Griffey Jr., and Babe Ruth. Extremely hard to not put Hank Aaron or Ted Williams in there. People forget, Griffey Jr. probably would have been considered the best player ever had it not been for injuries.

    Re: If you had to pick three outfielders

    Best baseball quote ever and so true:

    The triple is the most exciting play in baseball. Home runs win a lot of games, but I never understood why fans are so obsessed with them.

    -Hank Aaron

    I'll do you one better and say inside the park homer. Remember the one that Soto (of all people) hit last year?

    Edmonds was the best ever at running slowly so he could dive for balls and get on Sports Center.

    Yeah, you're right. He did not have much speed, but a great eye and made some really good catches...

    Re: If you had to pick three outfielders

    I voted Aaron, Mays and Mantle because of their combo of offensive and defensive skills, but there's too many greats for me to feel good about voting for just 3. Clemente needs to be on the list.

    There's a reason his nickname was Hollywood. Even though he played well for the Cubs last year, I found it very hard to cheer for him. Just didn't feel right.

    It's just hard to consider all of his catches as amazing because guys like Griffey Jr. or Torii Hunter would have ran down those balls easily. Hell even Brian McRae would have probably gotten to them.
