From any era, who would they be?
Let me know if I forgot someone important
Willie Mays, Willie Mays, and Willie Mays.
Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ted Williams... done and done.
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.
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.
I'll do you one better and say inside the park homer. Remember the one that Soto (of all people) hit last year?
I picked Mays, Aaron, and Ruth.
Mickey Mantle and then throw darts to pick the other two.
I didn't see half of them play.
Mays, Arron and my dark horse canidate Jim Edmonds.
Edmonds was the best ever at running slowly so he could dive for balls and get on Sports Center.
:yes: Yeah, you're right. He did not have much speed, but a great eye and made some really good catches...
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.
Agree with the Clemente needing to be up there
Anybody not taking Bonds is kidding themselves.
I like to look at Bonds pre steroids (circa 1993) and even then he isn't as good as Ruth, Mays, Aaron, or Griffey Jr.
"The Hawk" was pretty good. Probably not top three though.
But you have to choose between two different Barrys, the early career all around great player, or the late career batting juggernaut and defensive liability. For my money I'll take Mays, Mantle, and Junior.
