Mantle is rated more close to my way of thinking than what many others have posted here but I was suprised to see Mel Ott rated so high. And it's impossible for me, personally, not to take steroid/hgh use into account when having this discussion so Bonds at number two might be right on paper but not in my reality.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Mantle was one of the fastest players in the game before he torn up his knee on that freaking drainage pipe. It also didn't help that Mantle was a huge alcoholic.
I've read that as well re: Mantle's speed. He was some kind of physically gifted. It's remarkable that between the freak injury and the abuse he rendered upon himself, he's still among the top ten (arguably) of all time. Just astounding.
