Top Ten Best Baseball Players of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Shoeless Joe Jackson

Great ball player... Should be in hall of fame

He didn't lose that world series on purpose, he played very well, but his idiot teammates did. Should be in the hall of fame - RPD6478

The establishment finds it impossible to assess the evidence objectively.

He was innocent.,. Its that simple

42 Mike Schmidt

Maybe not the best player EVER but I would put him at either 20 or 24 and the only list barry bonds should be on is biggest disgraces to the earth list

Tell me who was better than Mike Schmidt at third base? You can not! The most complete player at that position!

Barry Bonds is above Mike Schmidt, that's just wrong.

He was the best third basement ever!

44 Mike Trout Mike Trout Michael Nelson "Mike" Trout, nicknamed The Millville Meteor, is an American professional baseball center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball.

How is he Number 48? He has been playing for 2 years. He has the potential of being a top 25 player but there is no way he is in the top 50 this early.

Mike Trout can hit for POWER Contact he's VERY VERY FAST he's a great fielder and he has a good arm and that's all you can ask for from a outfielder

I think he should be top 10 because he's no doubt one of the best players anyone could ever see as a out fielder and he's fast very fast he scores home runs almost every time he plays and that is why there is no doubt that he should be top ten

47 Austin Romine

Oh my goodness this proves u like yanks romine should be nowhere on this list trout and Bryce are way better and this all time

Why. He is in triple A

Who is this guy

He is player of the year

48 Bryce Harper

Bryce harper is not number 36 in front of nolan ryan he is a rookie.

Bryce Harper is a boss! Give him more credit!

Why do people even list brand new active players? That's not fair.

Bryce Harper should be in the top ten.

49 Pedro Martinez

Best Dominican Pitcher in History, arguably of course, with Juan Marichal!
Shouldn't be behind a lot of this newbies

50 Mark Teixeira

One of the most underrated players of all time, perhaps it's because he played in that black hole called "Texas" for so long (no one seems to care about the rangers) or perhaps it's because defense at first base is discarded in modern baseball. It's seen as the handicapped fielder's spot, and nothing more. But facts are facts. Yes, his sharp decline due to injuries make his career look no better than the likes of many first basemen's past, but no one can argue the fact that he has the 4th most defensive runs saved of all time for a first baseman, the 5th all-time home runs for a switch hitter, and provided an ever lasting duel threat in the middle of a lineup. His prowess at switch hitting is partly shown in the fact that he has the most games with homeruns from both sides of the plate all time. He has the single-season record for RBIs by a switch hitter (144), has hit for the cycle, is in the top 100 for all-time RBIs, and was part of one of the greatest infields of all ...more

He is the best

Best ever

51 Christy Mathewson

If he was in the first Hall Of Fame and struck out Ruth you can tell this man doesn't deserve to be this low

Holy crap! How is he this low. One of the top five pitchers ever. Give me a break people.

Statistically speaking he should be much higher up on this list...

You blew this by a wide margin. He's a Top 20.

52 CC Sabathia

54 Alex Rodriguez Alex Rodriguez

The worst cheater of all the cheaters. Kept lying and using even after caught and suspended. Total fraud. No way to know what his real abilities were like because he was a cheater for all or almost all of his career. Throw his numbers out. Disregard him. - 5ToolPlayers

AMAZAZING and the yanks 2

He needs to be higher, who cares about the roids you still have to be able to catch up and at least make contact with a 90mph fast ball

He is the dirtiest ball player ever. He would have been nothing without them like Jose, Raphael, and Sosa. He is a perfect example of what steroids do to decent athletes. Bonds, Big Mac, and Clemons were gods when they did steroids. They at least played some of their careers clean.

He did steroids for 2-3 years. It's not like he cheated all of his life.

55 Frank Robinson

Frank has always been treated with a lot of prejudice whether racial or as a ball player...he is probably the most underrated ball player ever to play... when he was 15 years old he could have played in the major leagues that is how good he was compared to others he played with that also played in pro level ball... many forget he has been very active as a manager and a president of a ball club but most recenter he works on the Executive offices of Major League Baseball. He Not only was a very good athlete but he was very intelligent mannered individual who played with a great level of integrity which many of the people that have been chosen before him who were great athletes can't even begin to stand in the same light as Frank let alone the ones who used substances to increase physical attributes that is and always will be a black mark on baseball. Personally I do not recognize any players who used substances for the purpose of enhancing performance way above what others did naturally ...more

One of the greatest along w/ Aaron and Mays and not included?

One of the all-time greats. Right up there with Mays, Aaron, Clemente, and Mantle.

He was better than Bonds and should be ranked higher!

56 Rogers Hornsby

What are you thinking! Rogers Hornsby should be top 10. Batted.400 three times, had a.358 career batting average, and player/managed the cardinals to their first World Series victory in 1926. Clearly does not deserve to be number 53?!?!

Why is Hornsby all the way down at 41? He hit.400 three times! Led the Cards to a player/manager World Series win. He deserved to be in the top 10 if not higher. Change him to be higher!

He's a Top 10. Greatest second baser ever. Triple crown winner. Put together perhaps the three best back-to-back-to-back seasons of all time.

Sorry Yankee fans. I'm even a Yankee fan and I can tell you Hornsby was better than LOL

57 Jim Thome

Most underrated player of all time

As great old school first baseman. A great power hitter.

A class act. Truly and honestly. Eclipsed 600 homeruns throughout the steroid era, and he was one of the nicest players you'd ever see in the game of baseball. There's no reason why he shouldn't be in the top ten.

He is nice and has great power swinging the bat.

58 Kris Bryant Kris Bryant Kristopher Lee Bryant is an American professional baseball third baseman for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball.

I agree a fantastic talent but this all time I would rank him about 12 or13 in current baseball

He has 26 home runs as a rookie that is amazing and had about 49 home runs in minor league last year

Kris Bryant is my favorite cub right now, and my favorite Mlb team is the cubs.

He should be number 1 or 2

59 Jake Arrieta Jake Arrieta Jacob Joseph Arrieta is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Chicago Cubs of Major League Baseball.

Arrieta and the Cubs will start to fade, because the goat curse will haunt them. Jake could have one really good season and that could be it for him.

He's good at pitching and not to bad at hitting

He is one of the best pitchers in the game. He will end up in the hall of fame

What a great and powerful pitcher for the cubs! #oneofthebest
