So your team is baseball? 

(Not a fan of Reds, just Votto...)

Mt Rushmore has 4 heads, not 8.

In all seriousness, is there a better one than Seattle's.

When arguably Edgar/Ichiro and Felix don't even get on it.

Makes it even all the more perplexing that they've been bad for so long and never even made a World Series from 95-01.

That's pretty good, but not better than Jr, Randy, ARod, then either Edgar or Ichiro.

Clemens
A-Rod
Mariano
Jeter

I'd say thats better. And of course there will be people (but maybe not on this forum) that seen Berra, Mantle, Maris, etc.

the Trout, Salmon, Vladdy and Nolan Ryan quartet deserves some praise...Maybe Edmonds over Salmon.

Since I became a Tribe fan around 2005 I'll go with:

Travis Hafner

CC Sabathia

Victor Martinez

Grady Sizemore

 

Pre 2005 I was a Dodgers fan so here are those guys: 

Gary Sheffield 

Adrian Beltre

Eric Gagne

Shawn Green

Carl Crawford and Evan Longoria are no doubter unanimous selections.  Then it gets interesting...

 

Zobrist, Kazmir, Snell (a Cy Young automatically gets you an honorable mention), Melvin "BJ" Upton, Aubrey Huff, Fred Mcgriff (did as well as anyone during his short time), and Carlos Pena all need to be in the discussion.  With TB it's more about quality than quantity since we don't have the rich, lengthy history like other teams.  Remember that the team has been a pro team for about a year or two longer than Tom Brady has been a pro player lol. 

 

With that said, my last two spots go to Price and Shields for their importance during our stretch of postseason success.

It's a solid list but I'd say Kluber definitely needs to be on there, at the very least ahead of CC.  From what I remember CC was above average but not amazing during his time in cleveland.  His outlier stat was what he was doing for how young he was, though.

Aubrey Huff shouldn't be on anyone's Mount Rushmore.
