Ozzie Smith. 13 strait gold gloves, that is ridiculous. 580 stolen bases.

GG's were not around when Wagner played.  Ozzie did steal 580 bases, Wagner stole more than 720, in addition to 3400 hits and a .327 BA, .466 slg, and only 327 SO in 10,430AB's.  Wagner is, without a doubt the greatest SS ever.

I would have to say Wagner, with Yount or Ozzie right there.  I also have to say anyone voting for Jeter here is either a bandwagon Yankee fan or not much of a historian.  If he is on any team other than thte Yankees, he is not in the conversation.  A-Rod from the Seattle days was a much better SS, and he still does not belong with the to 3 at the begining of my post.

Thanks, love the post, looking forward to seeing the rest of the team

Alex Rodriguez is the best shortstop ever. Love Honus Wagner, but A-Rod is a freak.

I've noticed how most are naming players that they have seen play, and that's understandable.  However, my pick defined that shortstop position as a power position back in the '50's and '60's.

 

Ernie Banks.  Here are some stats:  AVG - .274.  HR - 512.  RBI's - 1636  Back to back MVPs in '58 and '59 and voted to the ALL-CENTURY team in 1999.

i'm surprised noone mentioned omar vizquel! he may be one of the greatest defensive SS of all time.....
I actually mentioned Omar back on page 2 as an honorable mention, sammy-  his talents weren't lost on me, either...
