Best Baseball Players of the '90s


The Top TenXW

1Ken Griffey Jr.

Ken Griffey was so good he could smash a ball off of randy Johnson eyes closed then sprint 500 feet into the stands and catch it. Griffey was a god at baseball.

Greatest player that ever lived

1 thing that sets him away from everyone else, No Steroids EVER! - AP1090

2Derek Jeter

Griffey Jr. was so much better then jeter. Griffey was an absolute G compared to jeter. I think jeter was better in the early 2000.

JETER should be at the top of this list! - jacksonyin

The captain was the best from the 90s that is a no brainer

3Greg Maddux

As a Seattleite, I've heard many say that Randy Johnson was the best pitcher of the 90's and a better pitcher than Maddux- they're WRONG. Greg Maddux wasn't tall, muscular, not did even throw particularly fast. His greatness couldn't be measured with No Hitters or Perfect Games either. Maddux once said, "I'll never throw a No Hitter. I throw too many strikes." That is one of the many reasons he was EASILY the BEST pitcher of his era. He threw more strikes than balls by far. He didn't rely in size, speed or power- he relied on his wit, technique, accuracy and patience. The man was a Surgeon on the mound. Some pitchers got batters to swing at bad pitches to get them out- Greg Maddux got batters to swing at GOOD pitches and STILL got them out. His wind up and delivery were a work of art. He's been called, "Nature's Perfect Pitcher." I'm incredibly fortunate that I was alive at this point in space and time that I was able to see Greg Maddux play. Every game and every pitch was a privilege ...more

I mean no one had the dominance that greg maddux had, he was an excellent pitcher with unbeilavable command and the ability to make batters look stupid without throwing a 99 mph fastball, not too mention 18, yes 18, gold gloves

Maddux hands down best pitcher of the 90s

4 cy youngs? enough said, he's first.

4Sammy Sosa

Best black baseball player other than Robinson.

What about Bo Jackson

5Alex Rodriguez

No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No No

6Mark McGwire

Without roids this still would have been a beast

7Mike Piazza

Mike was an amazing catcher and to back that up he could hit the ball

8Edgar Martinez

Most underrated hitter of his era even though there are many of his peers from his era that speak of him in high regard, most notably, his former teammate Randy Johnson. Edgar Martinez was consistent, at times he was dominant, and unarguably- CLUTCH. If Paul Molitor is worthy of induction to the Hall of Fame, then Edgar Martinez is a no-brainer for induction. Those who argue that Molitor's 2 World Championship rings validate his worthiness and negate Martinez's, they're idiots. Championships are won by TEAMS, not individuals. The Designated Hitter vs Position Player argument is tired so I won't even bother. Anyone who's aware of whyMartinez became a DH and his capabilities as a 3rd Baseman prior to injury know better than to bother with that discussion.

9Randy Johnson

Randy Johnson was like 10x better then all of these people he had 300+ strikeouts in like 10 seasons

10Pedro Martinez

Pedro was the most dominant pitcher of the 90's

Not even close genius what about Nolan Ryan, Bret Saberhagen, and Jack Morris

The Contenders

11Tino Martinez
12Cal Ripken, Jr.
13Nomar Garciaparra
14Paul O'Neill
15Barry Bonds

Come on... I know he was on the juice, but that wasn't until 1998, he was still great. No Junior though.
