Who are the Top 10 Position Players Ever in Baseball?

Enough of this "foot ball" nonsense; time to talk about a real game.

You can use any standard you want -- hitting, fielding, baserunning, well-roundedness, character, historical impact, whatever. But don't mince words: give me your all-time top 10 for baseball.

Play ball!

Good list, Tim. But you're saying that Pujols' best is better than Gehrig's best?

Tim said...

He might not have been, but when fielding and baserunning are added, and Gehrig's numbers are discounted because he played before integration, my call is that Pujols is likely better all around.

Wondering if TWalk is having a conversation with himself here...?

I'm only one of the Tims here, Jim. ;)
