The greatest position player ever, and if he coulda pitched, I bet he woulda knocked Babe out of the top spot overall. "The Catch" is still amazing to watch, and the throw after is just as amazing. Damn.

Certainly the greatest "5 tool" player of them all. His stats are a great slap to the modern juice-monkey slugger. This guy hit 660 home runs playing most of his career at about 175 lbs.

You got that right! Williams, DiMaggio, Aaron, and many others, besides Mays, were pretty natural wonders. A lot of these modern chemical-bloated babys ain't fit to, as someone so much more eloquent than I once said, "hold the flavor-of-the-months' dick in the bus leagues."
