Top Five Living But Retired Baseball Players.

Postby wags6817 » Mon Mar 20, 2006 7:22 pm

I thought this might be interesting, name your top five baseball players you are still living but retired.

My Top Five

Stan Musical
Hank Aaron
Cal Ripken Jr.
Bob Gibson
Johnny Bench

this should spark some very interesting conversation.

Let me know what you think.

Man I forgot all about Willie Mays, he has to go to the top of the list. I would take out Cal.

I figured it was simply an oversight and not a slight. I think you could narrow the topic down to the two greatest after Mays, Musial, and Aaron. Any list without all three of those isn't worth the bandwidth used to show it.

I would personally say the same thing about Robinson not being on any of the lists but to each his own I guess.

I had to give a little love to the pitching position.

If Clemens is truly retired then I will take Brett off of my list (with a heavy heart) and add him there. I would take Seaver, Carlton and Spahn ahead of Gibson and maybe a half dozen other pitchers ahead of Ryan.
