NUMBER 3

NUMBER 2

(Foxx)






And the best Right hand hitter of all time

Do you agree with this list compiled by Mad Dog Russo? There was no mention of the name of a certain guy that AVERAGED .400 over a 5 year period and was the gold standard for righties for over a decade in the live ball era!


Image

That was yesterday. Today after getting flack from the Twitter-verse for this insane gaff Russo explained that it was the Black Sox remedy "rabbit ball" era. That "era" was exactly one season: 1930 and that makes zero sense as Hornsby was the best RHH before 1930 and after!

This list is so F'd up I don't know where to start. I have no problem with the 'roid boys and the dead ball era dudes being left off, but no Frank Robinson, Hack Wilson or MEDWICK? :shock: (I'm sure there's more)

Well there is only room for 5. Who do you kick off?

(I think DiMaggio and Greenberg would be the first to drop)

I agree with Greenberg getting dropped as he, like Medwick and Hack Wilson didn't have sustained years of greatness, but OMG the RBI's he put up for about 5 years is staggering.

Let me ax you a question: You're picking a team; who do you take: Aaron or Frank Robinson?

I think he needs a couple more years to qualify for an "all time" list.
