Just a little sidenote you never heard of: Clete Boyer, Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt signed a note and put it in Ken's locker, telling him he's the best 3rd-baseman they'd ever seen.

For one i find it hard to give that honor to a known steroid user, but for this i'll look beyond that.

Right off the top of my head, Wade Boggs was better than Caminiti without question. Schmidt obviously comes to mind.

As to SS, Ozzie was a good one, but not the best. He is in the HOF because of his defense. His offense numbers are nothing great, certainly not worthy of the HOF alone. But, the role of a shortstop has certainly changed over the years moving from what used to be mainly a defensive position to a power and speed position today. When it's all said and done, as much as it pains me to say it Jeter may go down as one of the best shortstops ever, and he'll never be remembered for his defense. That is why i can respect your opinion, because times have changed, but i just don't agree with it.

And you're right, we could debate all day and neither would be "right" but Caminiti???? That's laughable.

That's a great team. Most people don't remember that Craig made the All-Star team as a CATCHER first, then at 2nd base. Rickey was murder on the bases...by the way, Rickey was Nolan's 5K strikeout. Cal is a great pick, too. I watched Hank and Roberto their whole careers (Hank for the most part) and I'd still take Roberto. He was sick.

Freddie Lynn in center was fabulous, too.

I'm not going by numbers (notice Greg Gagne is in my lineup). Ken was a great player to watch. Just electric. Every Astros game I watched it seemed like he would make some outstanding clutch play in the field. He would play through broken bones and I think I remember him once playing through the flu. Despite the drug problem, I think he was one of the most talented third basemen (especially defensively) that I've seen play.

Scott Rolen is I think probably a better all-around player, as is Wade Boggs, which is why Wade is on my roster

He hit a home run in that game he had the flu. It was awhile ago, but i think he had an IV, then went out and hit a HR in a playoff game iirc. I'll also never forget him making throws from third from his ass. He was fun to watch, but not even close to the best all time. But to each his own.

I saw Pudge's first game back with the Rangers this year after coming home from the Astros. He had two doubles and scored at least one run as I recall.

I also saw him play as a Tiger at the Copa and at Ranger's Stadium.

He is easily one of, if not THE best catchers of all time.

I remember watching the game in 2007 that Biggio caught for a few innings. It was very cool to see that he still had it. He always played the game how it should be. Day after day, out after out, always giving it all he had for the team.

If I were a GM, these are the players I'd want for the upcoming years:

1st: Albert Pujols - Duh
2nd: Dustin Pedroia - Hard to argue with Pedroia at second
Short: Troy Tulowitzki - Still progressing with the bat, Cal Ripkin Jr. style defense, great club house presence. He's got the arm of God and he'll show it to you on a daily basis. Jeter was his idol growing up if that tells you anything.
3rd: Ian Stewart - Going to be a star in the next few years. Extreme long ball capability, stellar defense.
LF: Carlos Gonzales - 5 tool prospect that is coming into his own. Drafted and signed at the age of 16 IIRC, this kid really does have it all. He's fast. He can field. He can hit. He's got it all.
CF: Andrew McCutchen - Young kid projects to be a force on both sides of the ball.
RF: Andre Ethier - Another left handed bat with good clubhouse presence and game changing capability

Starting 5:
1. Zach Greinke - cy young shoe in
2. Roy Halladay - Domination
3. Tim Lincecum - The Freak
4. Cliff Lee - Solid lefty with pin point control
5. Ubaldo Jiminez - 5 pitch pitcher with a 100mph fastball. Need I say more? Ok, he's also a workhorse. At one point this season he had pitched at least 6 innings 25 consecutive times.

Catching:
1. Joe Mauer - Should I go on?
2. Chris Ianetta - Superb throwing arm, would make an excellent back up catcher to Joe Mauer. He's capable of 30 plus homers in a year if he's starting guy.


Again, these are the guys I'd want on my roster if I were a GM today.

I might add players off the bench and bullpen arms later.

Thanks Ryne was a great choice. He is my next favorite 2B behind Biggio. Biggio was my guy growing up, so he got the nod

I couldn't exclude Edgar. I think he really changed the way that teams considered the DH position, and he anchored an already really good (at least on paper) M's team through the '90s. Before his hamstring injuries pretty much relegated him to DH-only duty, he was actually a pretty good defensive 3rd baseman too.

You guys know that baseball was played before 1970? I just ask because I barely see any players listed from that time period.

Also, someone said they think Jeter is going to go down as the greatest shortstop in history?? You should google Honus Wagner, Ernie Banks, and Joe Sewell.

Cue holy mother of god.jpg

You have to be kidding???? That SS pick is extremely questionable, but at least i could respect that opinion.



Just a little sidenote you never heard of: Clete Boyer, Brooks Robinson and Mike Schmidt signed a note and put it in Ken's locker, telling him he's the best 3rd-baseman they'd ever seen.

True story....who's better IYO? Tell me that isn't a HOF group telling Ken he was fabulous.

Tell me who was a better SS than Ozzie? Like I said, it's all debatable.

HH



I think Omar Vizquel, in his day was one of the best if not the best?

Not another

Heck, i could make the argument Scott Rolen is a better all time third basemen by the numbers, and he isn't even close


I'd have Graig Nettles at 3rd, at least at his mid-late 70s peak with the Yankees.

He's also one of the only players I know of that went to management and insisted on taking a pay cut for the good of the team.
He was a GREAT 3rd baseman and a tragic story.

I'm not listing everyone, but my team would include Pete Rose, Lenny Dykstra, Craig Biggio and John Kruk.
The first 3 'cause they hustled on every play and Kruk just because you have to admire a beer-league softball player that makes it to the majors!

Always debatable...that's OK.

Seriously??? Joe DiMaggio isn't anywhere on that list? YOU'RE FIRED. Probably the best baseball player to ever play the game.



The best player to ever play the game IS on that list IMO... Roberto Clemente.

Do you hate Nolan Ryan ?


If you had read the thread, you'd see Nolan and Vida Blue as my 4th and 5th starters.

RIF.

Posting is fundamental

These are all my picks, assuming they are all playing in their prime.


Jesus god, its about time someone posted Ty Cobb. I was beginning to wonder if any of you people actually knew baseball.

No self respecting person from Michigan would DARE not mention Ty Cobb. One of the greatest baseball players EVER.

He got MORE votes than Babe Ruth did for being inducted into the hall of fame.


It's good to see someone knows their baseball.

I just wrote a paper on Cobb two weeks ago, his impact on baseball and contribution to the dead ball era for a Theory of Baseball(coaching minor) class of mine. Got 100% on it.

You can tell who the REAL Baseball fans are by looking at some of these lists, looks like they don't know squat about Baseball history. Only know what they saw during their lives.
