Glad to see the knowledgeable crowd weighing in on Yoda's side. '
Ok Yoda you get Whisp & I get SABR & TSN.
Theres no way I take that list seriously with Barry Bonds at #34. The single Season Homerun leader, All-Time homerun leader, 500 Sb's, Single season walks record, All Time walks record... that list is just out dated... im done reading such crazyness.
Well...I believe the list is from 1999, so you really can't expect them to be clairvoyant. That year Bond's had an OPS of 1.400+ sort of blows my mind...232 BB's? 120 of which were intentional? Seriously?
It's a bit of a silly discussion anyway, most of which would have to be based on subjectivity...so...Pujols playing 2B...craziness.
