just missed: Ichiro

honorable mention: nobody else.  They all sucked besides those 5.

Felix deserves some love.

Top 3 are locks. 4th was a toss up for me. Key or Stieb, G.Bell, TFernandez, Josh Donaldson, Olerud.

I’m no Mariners expert, but my buddy who’s a huge fan has Ichiro in over ARod and gives an honorable mention to King Felix

In their Mariner career Ichiro would probably make it over Arod.  Arod is best player I’ve ever seen though.  His 1996 season was one of the best seasons I’ve ever seen from an individual.  Ichiro compiled a ton of stats.  Arod was a much better player though.  
 

Felix did zippo for me.  There been well documented around here.  I don’t really get amped up about guys who rise to occasion in 97 loss seasons, and fade anytime they’re relevant.

I almost feel that our teams’ Mount Rushmore has to have some longevity to take into consideration.

As much as I loved Jimmy Rollins I would replace him with Richie Ashburn. But then I am probably older than you!

Yeah, I had Whitey as my first name until I saw the "in your lifetime" bit.  Even Lefty was a reach for me.

First 3 were easy. I went with Weaver but Garret Anderson has a case. Man, not a whole lot to pick from as a fan growing up throughout the 90's to now

Forgot how good Weaver was. And I initially thought Edmonds, but didn’t realize he was with the Cardinals for longer.

Edmonds was my favorite Angels player growing up, so I wanted to pick him, but yeah, he had his best seasons in a Cardinals uniform. Was glad to see him get his ring in 2006

I struggle with McGwire against Yadi.

Old school me says it should be a no brainer.  But the summer of 98 happened and I loved it.

I loved that summer, too!  I remember watching him hit #62.  The Cardinals were a terrible team that year, but, Big Mac still made them something to watch! 

I just based my 'Mt. Rushmore' on guys who were great both on and off the field (which Big Mac was, indeed) and who played major roles in Cardinals post-season success.
