    10th 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.

    I'm much more pleased with the position player results and believe in their accuracy (even though I would personally do some swaps) vs the pitchers thread, which has really been done in a very odd way.

    A lot of people seem to be ignoring pre-expansion pitching, but don't mind pre-expansion hitting.....just seems odd to me.

    It was between Speaker and Hornsby, went with the MI. Oh yeah, he probably had the best single season at 2B in Giants' history.

    Speaker, nominate Dimaggio.
    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.

    Tied for 138th all time in wRC+. 86th in fWAR.

    I don't see an argument for Gwynn being that high. I mean, even if you just look at batting average -- which is what makes people rate him so high -- he is 23rd all time.
