Greatest Philadelphia Phillies Players
The Top Ten
Oh come on this guy has more home runs then mickey mantle!
He's the reason I grew to love the game.
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.
SCHMIDTY! Michael JACK SCHMIDT! HOME RUN! NUMBER 300
Great guys on this list but I have to say Steve is the best on here
Plays defense and offense. Will never forget his 5 homeruns in the 2009 world series against the Yankees.
He's had some injurie problems as of late, really a shame. Him and schmidt probably the best all-around players in Phillies history.V 1 Comment
Greatest long ball hitter to play for phillies
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 - Sabbath
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
Ok you are talking about pat burrell, this is the comments for cliff lee
Rise is ahead of the illegal immigrant Manny Trillo
He didn't get along with some teammates but he was a awesome pitcher in 1993 especially - Sabbath
The bloody sock is what he is most famous for I think. great pitcher though - RPD6478
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
