i'm not ignoring them. Gibson, Charleston, Paige and many more players in the Negro League were fantastic, but we have to have the numbers. It would be unfair to say that Josh Gibson was better than Hank Aaron without the numbers. Unless you can give me a source where I can see legitimate stats, then maybe I will add some.

On a side note, I'm going to make a Top 100 and then we'll fix it from there.

I always thought it would be more interesting if the list was sorted by best players at each postion, rather than one giant list. Seems better and a tittle less subjective that way (to me). The only problem is guys who changed positions, like Rod Carew and Alex Rodriguez. My lists are a little sporadic so bear with me.

Clemens is way too high. Also I like the giant incorporated list. And I only think it is particularly subjective as you get down the list. The top spot is obvious and the top 10 is generally pretty indisputable.

I'm no Baseball nut by any description, but I was recently reading about a player from the early 20th century named Josh Gibson, apparently he was awesome, just wondered what you guys thought.

I have a question?
Is it a problem that Barry Bonds is at number one? Just look at his numbers, I mean, he is a certain number one pick. And dont give me that steroids bullshit, please.

Ruth has a distinct advantage over Bonds in average, OB%, SLG%, OPS, Adjusted OPS+, WAR (he also happens to be #1 all-time in each of those categories aside from OB%, where he's #2); most offensive statistical rate measurements Ruth's career>Bonds'. Add on cultural impact and the fact that Ruth was an outstanding pitcher early in his career and I'd say the top spot is the Babe's and only the Babe's.

All that said, Bonds should probably be at #2. Cobb, Mays, Young, Williams, Wagner, Johnson, Hornsby, Musial, Aaron, Mantle would probs follow in some order or another.

thank god somebody gave me valid reasoning. Most people just say he "cheated" because he used steroids. I have no problem with the Babe being number one, but Bonds is number two. However, I must say, I strongly disagree with the order you present.

Cobb, Mays, Young, Williams, Wagner, Johnson, Hornsby, Musial, Aaron, Mantle

Im sorry, but Cy Young doesn't belong anywhere near the top ten, despite his astronomical numbers. He pitched in the dead ball era, while Walter Johnson excelled in the live-ball era. Aaron behind Musial and Hornsby is also questionable. Aaron was excellent in the World Series, while Musial, Hornsby, and even Williams were held below their usual numbers. Mays had a better all-around game than Cobb did. Mantle is fine where he's at, his numbers could have been a lot better if his knees weren't so screwed up.

I would say...Ruth, Bonds, Mays, Johnson, Aaron, Cobb, Williams, Wagner, Gehrig, and maybe Lefty Grove, but that ten spot could be a lot of players.

Yeah I didn't list the rest of those guys in the order I thought they should be on the list, just kinda threw them out there. My top 10 would look pretty similar to yours. Mays and Cobb are my #3/4 and after that the ordering gets difficult.

I strongly disagree with Bonds being # 2 and if you don't change it then this list will forever be a joke. Sorry to be mean. I wouldn't have him in the top 5. He's a douchebag. Without steroids he could/should be in the top 10 but fuck not top 5. It's his own goddamn fault for cheating so don't take it out on me for knocking him down a few spots.

BEFORE YOU CALL ME ANOTHER BONDS HATER...he was my FAVORITE player in the 90's and 2000 but I don't give a shit who you are, if your a hitter and you take steroids then your a douchebag asshole who should be severely punished or banned from playing in the MLB. He should be in the Hall of Fame but he shouldn't be the all-time home run king or single season home run record holder.

He hit more home runs as he got older, he was visibly BIGGER than before. Steroids DID help him play better and don't deny it. All 3 players that passed Roger Maris' season record tested positive for steroids.

I realize that Ruth is the greatest when you go by criteria or whatever but he wasn't dominant on defense. I would suggest you put Willie Mays at # 1. He was GREAT on both offense and defense and didn't need steroids to help him hit home runs when he played in one of the toughest ballparks to hit home runs.

660 home runs, over 3,000 hits, 12 gold gloves, and he's an MLB champion. Come on now, he beats Bonds. Of course Ruth had the biggest impact so I'm not saying he shouldn't be # 1 but at least consider Mays to be at the top for 5 minutes.

I'll settle with Mays at # 2 though. Get Bonds out of the top 3 for the love of god. Ty Cobb would be rolling in his grave!
