Well shoot, I thought that's what your answer would be. Doesn't that make things difficult now? So who is the man. I'll take Bonds on roids.


I would take Bonds if it didn't mean we would have to deal with 5 pages of uninteresting flames. So instead I'll just pass.


I knew it! You are such a tease Tavish. Come on, have some cajones! ;-) Who, other than a steroid suspect, do you think career wise is the greatest pure hitter ever?

He played in a league with teams full of Juan Pierre-archtype hitters. As the teams pursued power hitters Ruth was still the best of the bunch but no where near as dominant.

also you guys are talking about guys who didnt strike out look at Cobb. i know he didnt see 97 mph heaters but he went FOUR YEARS in a row with 550 plus at bats without striking out, and NEVER grounded into a Double PLay.

my Ty Cobb stat of the day..


Not sure where you heard that, but your Cobb stat of the day is completely false. Cobb never had a single season over 550 AB without a K.

also Ruth has the career slugging percent title of all time, its way over 600, if you do that for one season you are a top player, his career average was way over that, [snip] and not too mention he has 7 rings with New York and Boston...

So if ur gonna say Ted Williams or Bonds is the greatest player ever lets see them dominate on the mound...


Orginally the question was who was the greatest hitter, and Ruth certainly was a great hitter as was Williams. If you want to talk about the greatest player, there is no player I would put above Cobb.

Assuming that K weren't recorded until 1913, I think he misinterpreted this:

You gotta admit Mattingly's '85 season was one of the best ever

35 hr's 145 Rbi's 41 k's 48 Doubles .324 average!

But his 86 season was almost as great if not better!

31 hr's 113 Rbi's 35 k's .352 BA! 53 Doubles!

He was sick...Remeber when he hit hr's in 7 straight games...Who else did that griffey right?


Remember the day after his 7th straight when he hit another one to make it 8 straight? That was the record, and an awesome one at that. Griffey tied it as well, and the BamTino currently has 5 days in a row.

You can't argue greatest hitter or pitcher in baseball history, because the game is 180 degrees from where it started out. It's almost like trying to compare players from different sports.
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

Sure you can argue it, you just can't definitively prove anything. Baseball's tradition is built on comparing players/teams from different eras.
