Greatest Philadelphia Phillies Players

The Top Ten

1 Mike Schmidt

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.


2 Steve Carlton

Great guys on this list but I have to say Steve is the best on here
- Razor79

3 Chase Utley

Plays defense and offense. Will never forget his 5 homeruns in the 2009 world series against the Yankees.

Chase has plenty of years left - Sabbath

He's had some injurie problems as of late, really a shame. Him and schmidt probably the best all-around players in Phillies history.

4 Robin Roberts

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.

5 Richie Ashburn
6 Dick Allen

Greatest Player Not In the Hall Of Fame as termed by many experts

Greatest long ball hitter to play for phillies

Saw him hit ball OUT of Connie Mack.

7 Ryan Howard
8 Roy Halladay Roy Halladay

I was always confident when he was on the mound - Sabbath

9 Jimmy Rollins
10 Pat Burrell

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

The Contenders

11 Ed Delahanty

Batted.400 3 times.346 lifetime ba 186 triples

12 Grover Cleveland Alexander
13 Jim Bunning
14 Pete Rose

Rise is ahead of the illegal immigrant Manny Trillo

A good Philly team became a great Philly team when Rose was signed.

Opinions on talent not bigoted pinheaded ones. What a dick!

15 Larry Bowa

Great fielder.

16 Cliff Lee

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

17 Darren Daulton
18 Del Ennis
19 Manny Trillo
20 Shane Victorino
21 John Kruk John Kruk
22 Jim Thome
23 Curt Schilling

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

24 Greg Luzinski
25 Chuck Klein

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

26 Cole Hamels

The Ace that helped get us the 08 World Series
