Best Baseball Players of the '90s
The Top Ten
Greatest player that ever lived
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.
1 thing that sets him away from everyone else, No Steroids EVER!
The fact that Jeter is #2 is a disgrace to baseball. If this was most overhyped, he would be #1, but this list #30 AT BEST
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.
JETER should be at the top of this list!
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.
The captain was the best from the 90s that is a no brainer
Best player ever to bad he retierd
Come on... I know he was on the juice, but that wasn't until 1998, he was still great. No Junior though.
He is one of the best players of all time he would be at number 1 on this list
No player will come close to his record
An absolute dad
The Big Hurt should be #1, no contest hands down. Hit for average, power, on-base %. This list is a Big Joke if Frank isn't #1.
Top 3 of the 1990s easily.. do you forget his back to back MVP years? What about his record for consecutive years with.300 avg, 100runs,100 rbi,100 walks,
Overall best offensive player of the 90's, The Big Hurt!
Mike was an amazing catcher and to back that up he could hit the ball
He could hit. He wasn't a catcher, he was a DH trying hard to pass as a catcher.
Randy Johnson was like 10x better then all of these people he had 300+ strikeouts in like 10 seasons
*kills a bird with his fastball*
Without roids this still would have been a beast
Best black baseball player other than Robinson.
Bo Jackson, was not a better player than Sammy.. come on now
Pedro was the most dominant pitcher of the 90's
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.
A great hitting DH. But don't bother with excuses for why he was a DH. He was a DH.
Awesome potential! Alas, unfulfilled, but awesome potential!
He consistently pitched for 27 seasons... are you kidding me?!?!?!?!
the muscle of the team
He has a kid that plays in MLB he is all around the best players
Most underrated mlb player ever
