    Willie Mays.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    Going to say Cobb, he was better offensely, hard to compare their defense considering how far back Cobb played.

    At that level personal conduct matters. Mays easily over Cobb as a package.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    Really? Because of his inflated batting averages?

    rWAR says:

    Cobb: oWAR: 144.7 dWAR: -10.8

    Mays: oWAR: 131.3 dWAR: 18.1

    Mays was a better player and person. Cobb was a violent racist, sociopath, and murderer, that played a game quite different from todays game - and that only against whites

    Mays was a class act wasn't he

    Bryant cites a first-hand account from 1957, a United Press/Movietone News reporter named Reese Schoenfeld, that Mays ragged on Aaron from the sidelines while Henry was being interviewed in front of a TV camera: "How much they paying you, Hank? They ain't payin' you at all, Hank? Don't you know we all get paid for this? You ruin it for the rest of us, Hank! You just fall off the turnip truck?"

    While Aaron became more and more agitated, Mays laid it on thick: "You showin' 'em how you swing? We get paid three to four hundred dollars for this. You one dumb ******!"

    Oh wait. He was an ******* too.
