Greatest Philadelphia Phillies Players
Over 500 career HR's and a ton of gold gloves at third base. Carlton is 2nd best in my opinion then Robin Roberts 3rd.
Oh come on this guy has more home runs then mickey mantle!
He's the reason I grew to love the game.
Great guys on this list but I have to say Steve is the best on here
He's had some injurie problems as of late, really a shame. Him and schmidt probably the best all-around players in Phillies history.
Chase was the kind of ballplayer you wanted your son to be like in little league on up.. A true role model..
Plays defense and offense. Will never forget his 5 homeruns in the 2009 world series against the Yankees.
My dad said that if Robin Roberts played for the Yankees he would have been the greatest pitcher of all-time. He played on some poor Philly teams that didn't score too many runs for him. He still managed to have over 286 wins during his career. He is ranked #22 in the Hall of Fame ahead of Tommy Glavine, Nolan Ryan, and Roy Halladay.
My favorite Phillies as a young boy. Copied my game after him. Great base runner, solid hitter for average, and played with a chip on his shoulder. I was heartbroken when he was traded to Cubs
His Career 156 OPS+ is the most telling statistic on why Dick Allen should be in the Hall of Fame. He is tied for 21st ALL TIME with Willie Mays in Career OPS+. He is ahead of NUMEROUS Hall of Famers including his peers such as, Bench, Clemente, Stargell, McCovey, Cepada, Tony Perez, Ernie Banks and Billy Williams..
Yes, the NUMBER 15 should be retired. It will make a twofold statement. One, finally the City of Philadelphia and their baseball fans have made a 180 degree turn and applaud his efforts since he wasn't really a fan favorite in the 1960's when Philadelphia was one of the most racist city's in the country. Two, it will show the Hall of Fame that they Phillies think so much of Dick Allen that they backed off of tradition and retired his number even though he is not in the Hall of Fame.
Dick Allen's number 15 should be retired.
Greatest Player Not In the Hall Of Fame as termed by many experts
Pat Burrell struck out way to many times to be on here. All the time the bases had runners and he had a chance to score for the phillies he struck out. He was almost a automatic out. He was a embarrassment
For Bunning, he's forever remembered for that 1964 Father's Day perfect game against The New York Mets. His great pitching would earn him National League Pitcher of the Month in that June of 1964. 1967 saw him posted a 2.29 ERA and 253 strikeouts and 6 amazing shutouts. A true Hall of Famer.
A good Philly team became a great Philly team when Rose was signed.
Opinions on talent not bigoted pinheaded ones. What a dick!
Pat Burrell shouldn't be on the top 400 phillies list. He never came through and struck out more then Ryan Howard! Burrell was terrible
How is this guy not on the list already?
There is clearly a generational bias here because if Klein had played in today's era and put up the numbers he did he would probably be ranked in the top 7. I think this is a pretty solid list, but the non-inclusion of Klein is sad. Early in his career, he was a CONSISTENT 35 HR, 120 RBI (5 consecutive seasons of 120+ RBI), and batted AT LEAST.337 in his first six seasons.
It was hard to pick a best season because he was so consistent early on, but I'm going to cite his 1932 numbers:.348 average, 38 HRs, 137 RBIs (Your move Chase Utley),.404 OBP, and a jaw-dropping.646 SLG. It is a crime not to have this guy AT LEAST in the top 10, he clearly deserves to be there.
Yes, he played in an offensive era. Yes, he played in a hitters friendly ballpark (Shibe Park). However, his WAR, which accounts for all such factors, in 1932 was 6.6 (His career high came a year later: 7.5!). To put that in perspective, Ryan Howard's WAR in 2006 ...more
