DiMaggio is way behind Mantle and Williams. Williams lost prime years to the wars, Mantle lost prime years to numerous injuries. Give me Mantle, not as destructive with the bat (but not far behind) but was a much better all around player.

Nein und abermals nein!! Have you looked at the numbers?

Win Shares
Mantle 565
Teddy 555
Dimaggio 385

OPS+
Mantle 172
Teddy 190 [how crazy is that?? Over 2,000 games WITHOUT the juice!!]
DiMaggio 155

Career HRs
Mantle 536
Williams 521
DiMaggio 361

I'll stop there, but the list goes on and on. It's really debatable who you put first, Mantle or Teddy, but DiMaggio isn't even top 10 all-time.
