5x World Champion
Captain of the greatest team in sports
Will finish 5th or 6th all-time in hits
None of that contradicts anything that I said. I gave him credit, I said he was one of the fifteen best players of the last thirty years, but not top fifteen all-time.
Wagner, Cobb, Speaker, Ruth, Hornsby, Gehrig, Williams, Foxx, DiMaggio, Musial, Mantle, Mays, Aaron, Henderson, Robinson, Schmidt, Morgan, Bench, Ripken, Bonds, Pujols
That is twenty-one off the top of my head and does not include pitchers (which you included in the original statement). Adding pitchers:
Young, Mathewson, W. Johnson, Alexander, Gibson, Spahn, Koufax, Clemens, Maddux, Martinez, R. Johnson
At least eleven more. I am sure that there are some I forgot as I just started at 1900 and did it from memory. As I said, he is one of the top players of his time, but to put him in the top fifteen all-time, particularly when including pitchers, ignores a large chunk of history.
