Who are your top 3 baseball players EVER????
Here are mine
The last one was tough.So who are your top 3 players EVER???
babe ruth number 1 all time is correct on hitting and if you looked at his pitching stats they would be impressive today not sure how his era would stack up against his era, under 3.00 era lifetime. Babe Ruth clearly dominated league.
ty cobb was one of greatest userd to have stolen base record. Used to sharpen his metal cleats before games so when he was trying to steal bases nobody would block him off of it.
Honus Wagner loved his story loved how it is reported there was a ball hit to him it came back wuicker than it did when left play, he was normally a ss but the of told him to go there in case of play at plate in close game.

What do you know about Nolan Ryan aside from the strikeout record and the no-hitter record?
What do you know about Cy Young aside from the wins record and the fact that he has an award named after him?
The Big Cat was a former Ranger great (for a few years). If you played for Texas in the 90's or really anytime up to the last 3-4 years, you did juice.
and probably many more
Players I've seen who are better contact hitters than Jeter: Ichiro, Tony Gwynn, Kirby Puckett, Wage Boggs, Todd Helton, Albert Pujols
Players I never saw who I'm sure were better contact hitters than Jeter: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, George Sisler, Stan Musial, Jimmie Foxx, Tris Speaker, Joe DiMaggio, Eddie Collins, Paul Waner, Rod Carew, Roberto Clemente, Nap Lajoie, Honus Wager
And if you don't think that Jeter's been affected by the new stadium, think on these factoids:
-Discounting that weird outlier that was the 2006 season (2005: .840 OPS, 2006: .900 OPS, 2007: .840 OPS), Jeter's on pace for his best season overall season since 1999.
-He's on pace for 20 homers. The last time he hit 20 homers was in 2004.
-He's hitting .330. Discounting the lucky '06 season (.391 BABIP!), Jeter hasn't hit .330 since the 2000 season.
-He's got an .870 OPS. Again, discounting 2006, he hasn't put up an .870 OPS since 2000.
Need any more proof? 35-year-olds don't magically revert to career highs overnight. If you really don't think that the new Yankee Stadium has helped Jeter (and every other Yankee) a whole lot, you're kidding yourself.
but they have to throw him decent pitches. They can't aford to walk a guy in front of ARod, etc. Considering we're talking about Jeter beign one of the 3 best players EVER, I think calling an arument dumb is kind of redundant.
there are plenty of past guys who have been the best in several categories year after year. he's just not in the top 10 ever stratasphere. Very good, yes, I'll give you that, but you're over valuing him.
