All TIME MLB Draft: BirdmanJr is UP. Fincham11 is ON DECK

All the picks have been fine thus far. However, there should never be an all time MLB draft where the first 2 picks werent Babe Ruth and Willie Mays. They are the best 2 players to ever play the game in my opinion.

I think Bonds, Williams, Mays and Ruth all have good arguments. I just don't think there can ever be a consensus number one considering how drastically the game has changed since its inception.

I think Mays would have hit 800 homeruns if he hadnt missed 2 seasons to military and played in the toughest park in baseball for a RH hitter to hit homers.

Bonds simply was not in the class of Ruth, Mays, Williams, or Gehrig until the roid era. Sorry, but its true.

That's a fair argument.

Bonds had already won multiple MVPs by the time his head grew 3 sizes to big, you can throw him in the argument...

Shhhh...He is the greatest to ever play according to this board.

It must suck to have to rely on the abilities of others to make your points for you and all you can do is make snarky comments.

Lifer, while he did win multiple MVPs, John has a point. We're talking about the best of the best here, and Bonds didn't dominate to the same degree that those other guys did before the steroid era.

That being said, Bonds dominated that era (statistically speaking) moreso than any other player's done. His production relative to the era...despite the valid point that John makes...is what's going to be measured here.

I think both sides have valid points here.

Your constant jabbs proves it little guy.
I could care less what you or anyone on this board thinks.
Your opinion or anybody elses means nothing to me or the real world.
QUICK, somebody post a HOT CHICK (or a repulsive one) so that we can re-focus on the 1st Round of our Beloved Draft.
