    Default greatest baseball player of all time

    With Griffey Jr. hitting 600 yesterday people have started talking about the best players of all time.

    In your opinion who is the best baseball player of all time?

    Ruth.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    I would have to go with Mickey Mantle. He was one of the fastest players to play the game and was a hell of a hitter. I would go out on a limb and call him the best pure hitter ever.

    Though it is hard to argue against Babe Ruth who was the home run king for years and also threw a no-hitter as a pitcher.

    Ruth was one of the best pitchers of the time, but he never threw a no-hitter.
    I know there is the game where he walked the first batter got in an argument with the umpire and tossed from the game and his replacement, Ernie Shore, came in and threw nine perfect innings.

    Your right, Ruth didn't throw the no hitter that was my bad. I just saw his name tied to it.

    I heard a radio interview with Fay Vincent (who apparently has just written a book about some of the old-timers) last weekend, and he described Mantle as "lightning fast" (I think that was the phrase) and said he could have been even greater but for his alcohol abuse.
