She's probably either a) not on the list or b) gone up against the #2 girl in every battle. :-L

Either way, it doesn't really matter.

And yes, Nolan is a cult leader.

Ryan is the best pitcher of all time in the same manner as Ozzie Smith was the best SS or Bill Mazeroski the best 2b. Yet unfortunaelty, if you ask even the esteemed baseball writers or Veteran's committee, even they can have brain cramps and let 650 OPS players in the HOF...so why not guys like Ryan being voted number one by the less informed general poplulace?

If all else fails, we can just blame Texas...

Just kidding. :-D

Am I the only one who voted for Chief Bender?

And Hootie - you've been complaining about Nolan Ryan's overratedness for a couple of years now. He'll continue to be overrated until the people who saw him pitch die. Then they'll be talking about some other showboat as best ever.

I voted Koufax. But it is surprising to see Ryan before Clemens. That's ridiculous.
