It has to be Ruth and Mays. There really is no argument for Ruth needed, but i will anyway. The fact of the matter is that Ruth was a Hall of Fame pitcher prior to being the most feared hitter in the history of baseball. Moving on to the real debate, is it Mays or Cobb? It so clearly has to be Mays for the simple reason that he hit for power. The fact that Mays was one of the few true "5 tool" players t o do that for a whole career also plays in. Not to mention the fact that to really have the best final you can, you have to take guys from different eras! The history of baseball is all about comparison eras. Its hard to say that one players is better than another because numbers are skewed from one genreation to the next. Babe Ruth vs Willie Mays puts the best player of the first 50 years and the best player of the last 50 years, head to head! Isnt that what we all want???

1.  The Babe, no one ever did it better.  It is not just the personal stats, look at all of those world Series titles.  Teddy Ballgame has none.

 

3.  A bigoted racist, but one hell of a ballplayer.

Mays over Cobb? That's kinda pathetic.

 

In additon to RS's comments, Mays made the players around him better.  I think the edge is slight but I would still take Mays over Cobb for my team.
