    8th Best Position Player of All-Time

    JordansBulls did this a few years ago in the NBA section, and I thought it would be fun to do here in the MLB section for MLB players.

    We have so many debates about the greatest of all time and how eras transcend etc. Why don't we make it official?

    I am going to do two separate lists, one for pitchers, and one for hitters. Hitters are up first, and we'll start by doing the top 10, and if the momentum remains, we'll extend beyond that.



    RULES:
    There will be a zero tolerance, one strike policy. If ANY poster is interrupting any of the threads in a negative way, OR causing any problems they're ability to vote will be taken away.
    NO POSTING in your FORUM, VOTE for this GUY. We had problems last time with it and NO POSTING in someone Else's Forum to VOTE for a certain player.


    Criteria: Take into account both peak and career play, era dominance, impact on the game of baseball, and how well their style of play and skills would transcend onto different eras. Statistical values, team values, etc all matter. To be more exact, how great they were at playing the game of baseball.

    So while this thread will be a poll, you vote for one player and then Nominate someone who is not on the list that way as the guys in the original list are selected we know who to add on the subsequent list.

    For example:

    If for #1 you vote Ruth, obviously we will see it in the poll, but don't just vote please, have discussion and include a nomination for who you think should be added to the next ranking on the poll.

    For me I might vote Ruth #1, and then say Nominate: Rogers Hornsby to be on the next poll for the #2 player.


    Current List:

    1. Babe Ruth

    Nominate: Frank Robinson

    It was tough to determine who to nominate between Robinson and Ott, but I feel like Robinson had a greater overall impact on the game than Ott did. So that won the edge for me.

    Nominate: Jackie Robinson

    Without Robinson I wonder when MLB would've seen Mays, Aaron, Banks, etc.

    how are you guys nominating Robinson ahead of Foxx.... look at the numbers

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...02.shtml?redir
    http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...01.shtml?redir

    1 more MVP
    better in all categories (per GP)
    1.038 vs .924 OPS
    .325 vs .294 avg
    better K:BB
    even has 110 RBI MORE having played 500 LESS games than Robinson.

    Foxx shouldve been an option 5 spots ago
