Babe Ruth... and Cobb got robbed yesterday...

This one shouldn't even be close, Babe Ruth is the All-Time leader in Win Shares, a sabremetric term designed to assign a numbered contribution value, to individual players...

The "Great Bambino" will forever be remembered as baseball's greatest player...

Whether you love or hate the Yankees this one is a no-brainer...RF Top 5

  1. Babe Ruth - Red Sox, Yankees, Braves
  2. Hank Aaron - Braves, Brewers
  3. Roberto Clemente - Pirates
  4. Frank Robinson - Orioles, Reds, Dodgers, Angels, Indians
  5. Reggie Jackson - Athletics, Yankees, Orioles, Angels

HM: Tony Gwynn, Al Kaline, Mel Ott, Paul Waner, Dave Winfield, Sam Rice, Dwight Evans, Harold Baines, Jesse Barfield, Bobby Bonds, Andre Dawson, Joe Carter, Jose Canseco, Juan Gonzalez, Vladimir Guerrero, Frank Howard, Roger Maris, Dave Parker, Tim Salmon, Enos Slaughter, Sammy Sosa, Darryl Strawberry, Ichiro Suzuki, Larry Walker

Also an addendum to my CF HM list - Dale Murphy. I feel badly about omitting him as he should have been included...

There might be a few homer votes, but this one should go to George Herman Ruth all the way.

While it pains me to say it, Babe Ruth is the only choice for this spot... I would love to have Roberto Clemente man Right Field for this team, but the measure of the man was not a requirement for this spot... The Babe is head and shoulders the best player on this team... it would be interesting to see thoughts on a line-up card for these greats???

There really is only one vote here....Babe Ruth.  I just want to mention Frank Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and Hank Aaron who deserve some recognition.

Reggie Jackson in his prime was a great fielder and will always be "Mr October". Vladimir Guerrero has a shot at the Hall if he can stay healthy and win a series. But Babe Ruth gets my vote.

this is going to be an easy one for everyone, sure everyone will have their personal favorites, but when it is all said and done it has to the one and only George Herman Ruth.

But man these runner-ups would make great DH's or bench players...Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Reggie Jackson, Mel Ott, Paul Waner, Al Kaline, Dave Winfield or even Tony Gwynn.

i would be surprised to see a vote for anyone else besides Babe Ruth for this position.
