My spirits were certainly lightened by their 7th inning exploits, followed by the 9th, but I am pretty sure the word you're after is lightning.

heh

no Aaron's was not a better hitter than Williams and everyone knows that.

Except the troll.

Aaron's was the better all-around ballplayer.

But Aaron as good a hiiter as he was, was not as great as Williams.

when the troll loses an argument he changes the argument.

and from 1939-60 Williams career, the AL, the Junior Circuit, was the superior league to the NL.

it was until the mid 50s early 60s that the pendulum started to swing to the NL.

And everyone with a real sense of baseball history understands that.

Which explains why the troll didn't.



SSDD

Nope. You're wrong.

Aaron better..

The end.

I posted a like thought elsewhere in a mostly y-fan thread, where the prevailing wisdom had been that Judge would be be playing by now

The new take was Gardy sucked and Stanton needed a break and its only a couple of low level prospects

I was going to have some fun and mention the deep depth that Ellsbury gives them, but...

I assume Judge is getting ready for 1 -game, after that who knows?

You just root for these things, seemingly.

Pretty good SS Yanks gave up.  Look forward to seeing him succeed Crawford.

What's the same every time is your complaining after your assessment has been kicked to the curb once again. Which it was.

What's the same is your gnawing inferiority and obssession with all things Boston.

You can believe and post whatever you like, and kick any post you do not understand to the curb.

But you only look like  clueless obssessed buffoon in the process.

you want to believe that Rose or Aaron were betters hitters than Williams, you are free to.

However almost all relevant stats and all baseball observers with a reasonable amount of knowledge would judge you a fool.

poor troll

his poorly articulated declarations have been repeatedly shown to be without merit, unsupported by facts and display his infantile grasp of the history of the game.

at least his inferiority complex is well founded.

Greatest player was Ruth and I don't understand why it is even a discussion.

He was a great hitter. He was a great pitcher. Steals are lovely. Fielding is nice. But being a top of the line pitcher in both the regular season and post-season, then becoming a great everyday player? Few people did both positions tolerably well, even back in the day.

Maybe Newcombe or Ferrell could have gotten there in a different universe, but they didn't. Nobody is likely to ever touch the Big Train's best hitting year, but it was an outlier - and just not the same level of power.

Ruth would have been a Hall of Fame pitcher, had he not been shifted away from the mound. 17th in career ERA. Top 10 for wins before age 25.

Ruth was not the focus of the discussion.

But I generally agree with your post.

Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of Williams birth and I posted he was arguably (along with Ruth) the greatest hitter in the game.

to the arguably greatest hitter who ever lived

Happy 100th Ted

nice article by Shaughnessy

They should say hello, Willie would say "Hey", to the greatest hitter in the game on the anniversary 100th birthday

Agree on Mays

Disagree on Aaron

IMO Williams and Ruth were the best hitters

then maybe Gehrig, Bonds* Foxx, Aaron

And then Utley decided to dumb things down so he could participate.
