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

 

Woah, yea, that's a good one.

The Jay's havent really had many iconic baseball names.

Atlanta is kinda a tough one...

But I think I have to go:

Chipper

Maddux

Glavine

Smoltz

 

Honorable Mention:  Freeman, Murphy, Andruw Jones...  Didn't get to see Aaron play or he'd be there for sure


will probably have Freeman on it when it’s all said and done.  Maybe over Glavine.

Griffey 

Arod

Randy

Edgar Martinez 

 

just missed: Ichiro

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

Ichiro and his over .400 batting avg in the second half carried me to a championship he is on my Mariners list... def randy griff arod... Martinez could absolutely hit... tough list..picking 4 of 5 of those

Clemens should be listed under Boston. His best years were there.

Mariners

Arod, JR, RJ, Ichiro are better

Arod a push both sides

RJ Rivera a push

Ichiro over jeter easy

JR over clemens in ny easy

If you want to add mantle, then its close

Uh how many MVP's did A-Rod win in Seattle? How many in NY?  Yes thats no push.
If you think Ichiro over Jeter you're really confused, especially to say "easy"
I'm not calling it a push between Mo and Big Unit when you're only wanting to look at what they did in that uniform. No way, no how.
The Kid over Clemens only based on what they did on those teams? Sure you got that one.

Arod ops

NYY .900

SEA .934

RJ threw 550 more innings

130-74 record

Ok, MO gets a slight edge

But throwing 1 inning, versus the 6.7 innings RJ threw, is much easier.

Ok, I shouldn't have said easily, my bad.

I still take Ichiro

Defense matters. Ichiro was gold, Jeter was bad at it.

Jeter has a slight edge in oba and slg.

Ichiro stole more bases in 800 fewer games, and blew him away in defense.

It's close to a push.

Not having Posey on the list is lunacy.

Bonds and Posey are musts IMO, after that you can make a debate about the other two. I think I prefer Bumgarner and Clark.
