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!
dumbass, dumbass, dumbass.
Everybody used steroids in Bond's prime (2000-2004), so that means EVERYBODY would have had his numbers. Guess what? THEY DIDNT!!!
Also, Bonds was better at stealing bases, more home runs, more runs scored, most walks, most MVP's. Record for highest SLG% and OBP in a single season. Mays wasn't good in the post-season, and Bonds wasnt the best either, but Bonds was excellent in the 2002 World Series.
Dude, fuck off. That whole steroids argument is just terrible. Think of a different argument.
Also Bonds is equal to Mays in fielding, this is the truth.
