Best player in team history

Tavish, I see what your saying, and I agree with most of the guys you selected. I was merely giving few other options for the sake of doing so.
The one that I disagree with you is Lowell and Sheffield.
I don't think Sheff played long enough with the Marlins to be called the best player in the team history (He actually have played more games as a Dodger). He only made 1 all star appearance where as Lowell made 3 as a Marlin.
Lowell also has the most Doubles/Home Runs/RBIs as a Marlin.

A comparison of Ernie Banks v. Cap Anson's career numbers in Chicago is very, very close. This one is as intriguing as Bonds v. Mays. Banks is about 300 games and 380 PAs ahead. Anson leads in AVG, OBP, OPS, OPS+, R, H, 2B, 3B, RBI, and RC. Banks leads in SLG, TB, HR (obviously ;-7 ), and XBH. These guys are 1-2 in a number of them. I think I might go with Cap, but wow is it close.

I'd take RJ over L-Gon in Arizona and I'd take Bench over Robinson in Cincy.

I think Nolan could be ranked over Salmon for the Angels.

I would probably go with Chuck Finley over Ryan for the Angels. That might be as much about my dislike of how overrated Ryan was, but Finley leads about as many categories for the team as Ryan does.

I was thinking about this as well, and it's a tough call. You can certainly see it from both sides... :-?

Is Ryan starting to be so overrated he's underrated? :-b

Tony Fernandez or Roberto Alomar for the Jays I would say.

I think you gotta go with Delgado, who did far, far more than Fernandez in about the same playing time. Alomar was excellent for the Jays, but in only about half the playing time as either of the other two guys.

I really don't think that will ever happen. He is the Cecil Fielder of pitching. Chicks dig the long ball for hitters, the strikeout for pitchers. Other than the no-hitters Ryan put up the only other thing that really seperates him from an average fireball pitcher was his durability.

Cleveland is an interesting problem. They have had some great players there, but they all also played else where and are not hall of famers based solely on their cleveland stats (well except for Addie Joss and Bob Feller, who it can be argued should be considered)

If Manny Ramirez or Nap Lajoie had spent their entire careers as Indians they should be the best player.
