Williams doesn't show up at all on that list.

And for total hits career? Aaron is third. Williams???

Well, well out of the running.

Because truly great hitters like Aaron hit for power, and they have 200+ hit seasons.

In other words, to be a great hitters...get hits.

Back to your barstool, you've lost another.

So you find the #71st ranked guy (Aaron) on a list and you think this is an endorsement of your cherry-picked list?

You're an idiot.

Williams is not on the list because he received a lot of walks, got on base a lot, and had the highest on-base & than amyone in MLB history.

He did not make the outs that other hitters made.

Hitters like Rose and Aaron who made more outs than any other players in MLB history.

Williams got on-base instead.

When he did hit, he hit for average and power, (and at superior average than Aaron)

Again one only has only to look at an appropriate universe of data, like slugging % or OPS. .

But I understand you are fully invested in your own stupidity and cluelessness to go outside your towering boundaries of dumb.

You're lack of basic understanding of the game is almost surprising.

Back to the gutter troll, to wallow in your most recent humilating spanking.

You're still losing.

You won't win.

And the beatings will continue.

Great hitters get hits.

He's woefully lacking in that department.

High average usually means fewer at bats, is all.

Aaron didn't have power?

LMFAO!

Hank Aaron had 1100 MORE HITS than the Spoiled Splinter.

Great hitters do that.

Beatings will continue, until your brain hurts.

Yet surprisingly for all the reasons given, most observers rank Ruth and Williams #1/2 when ranking the greatest hitters in the game.

So back to the gutter troll, and own your latest humiliation.

A lot of people eat at McDonald's. Doesn't mean it's good food.

And Mays was better than Williams, too.

And neither Willie or Henry could hide being black, but the Spoiled Splinter HUD being brown.

Beatings will continue.

See ya, loser!

Troll

It was settled before you dumbed down this discussion that both Mays and Aaron were better ballplayers than Williams.

However, Williams by general consensus, and most metrics, was either the best or 2nd greatest hitter in the game.

I sort of understand your need to change the arguments you've hopelessly bungled and lost for the past 2 days. You feel humiliated again and you want to save face, however yours is not worth saving.

Besides its dishonest.

Enjoy your Happy Meal

and try not to lose the toy in the gutter

200 hit seasons.

No doubt about it, Utley, Aaron had three 200 hit games to none for Williams.

In Williams' 194 hit season, he was walked 162 times! BA .343 OBA .490 SLG .650
In Aaron's 223 hit season, he was walked 51 times. BA .355   OBA .401 SLG .636

In Williams' 193 hit season, he was walked a mere 96 times - more than Aaron was walked in any season of his career.
BA .344   OBA .442   SLG .594
In Aaron's 201 hit season, he was walked a 78 times - in 161 games.
BA .319   OBA .391   SLG .586

In Williams' 188 hit season, he was walked 126 times. BA 369  OBA .497   SLG .615
In Aaron's 200 hit season, he was walked 37 times. BA .328   OBA .365   SLG .558

13 times, Williams had more walks in a season than Aaron's most. But... Aaron had five seasons in which he struck out more than Williams' worst year.

Aaron got pitched to far more than Williams - he got more hits, while getting on less much less often and slugging less. I suspect that had Williams been pitched to as often as Aaron was, he'd have had as many or more 200 hit games, without worrying about missed seasons due to war. (Not WAR!)

Oh, look. Another member of the vaunted "Boston mafia."

Utley's so screwy about these arguments.

This alleged "greatest hitter", not on this list.

https://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/https://youtu.be/VU7texRnXjkH_season.shtml


Yet he played 19 seasons in a band box.

Sad.

I guess living in a myth-making metropolis made him seem like he could hit.

HEH

page not found (404 Error).

So typical of the troll.

As is his continued misunderstanding that William's, a classic pull hitter, and subject to the first shift (Boudreau) against his pull-power, played half his games in the ballpark with a one of the biggest right-fields and did not play to his stubborn strengths.

In fact, in a well known story, in 1947, Tom Yawkey and Yankee owner Dan Topping, met at Toots Shor's and over several cocktails agreed to trade Williams for Joe D, with the thought of the reunting the Dimaggio brothers in Boston with Joe attacking the Monster while Williams would take advantage of Yankee Stadium's short-porch in right and resume where Ruth had left off.

Sober heads and presumably coffee prevailed the following morning, and the trade never happened.

And the real band box is in Philly, but its not lyric, as there is no music nor charm, its just a small ballpark, built for small-minded dolts.

No, he's right - Ted hit far better at home than away:
      
I   BA   OBP   SLG   OPS      
Home   .361   .496   .652   1.148   
Away   .328   .467   .615   1.082       

Aaron was about the same home and away, overall (and not bothering to compare Milwaukee vs. Atlanta)
      
I   BA   OBP   SLG   OPS      
Home   .303   .379   .557   .936      
Away   .306   .369   .552   .921      

But Ted Williams' weaker performance still blows Aaron's performances away. Or home.

The only thing that the troll got right in his post was repeating Updike's reference to Fenway as a bandbox.

However, from a link that did not work, to evetually providing a link that was meaningless, to misunderstanding the nature of Williams as a pull hitter hitting into Fenway's expansive right field pasture, the contstruct of a bandbox really doesn't work. The cut and paste troll has surface knowledge at best. He's a parrot parotting, with no real understanding, just a lyric little squawk.
