Chipper Jones, every position.
(08:50:08) The_White_Samurai: 90% of farts that come from a diet such as Hooner's result in bleeding.

(10:25:26) NLP49: Dude, you're not Hooner. Only Hooner is.
(10:25:32) NLP49: And even he doesn't rub it in our faces.

(11:59:07) Charlotte2002: hooner's honesty is admirable

The only locks I can think of off the top of my head are:

3rd - Mike Scmidt
LF - Barry Bonds
CF - Willie Mays
RF - Henry Aaron

Although leaving Ted Williams off the list seems idiotic.

Maybe the rest
SS - Ozzie Smith
2nd - Ryan Sandberg
1st - Lou Gehrig (This is the toughest position to pick IMO)
C - Ivan Rodriguez
P - Cy Young

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

Had a huge argument this weekend about this sort of thing regarding Derek Jeter.

People say he is overrated and isn't a superstar, but it arguable that he will go down as the best SS of all time.

I can't come up with locks for this type of list- especially in the OF.  Williams, Mantle, Ruth, Joe D, Clemente.  The list goes on and on.

3B- Schmitt is probably as close to a lock as there is, unless you consider ARod.  
Catcher, tough call- Bench, Berra, Fisk.
SS- Jeter, Smith, Ripken- I think todays SS are a little better- more pop
2B- Sandberg, Morgan
1B- Gerhig for me too
LHP- Koufax, Randy Johnson maybe
RHP- Clemens, Seaver, Gibson, hell that's tough

We have had this arguement on here before or the board before this but Sandberg is way overrated. I personally saw him make 2 errors in Wrigley during his streak. He got a tremendous amount of home cooking and lots of errors were counted as hits . Good stick but average in the field because of his limited range.
In the Time of the Chimpanzee, I Was a Monkey....

49erAlumnus: It's been so long since we've been hated by anyone but...us.

BUMP
 
 
Induction weekend is here!  
 
Yesterday I ran into "Ole Slippery Pete" Rose on his way to a card store for an autograph session.
 
I'm about to head to work this morning and help out with an event in which guests can play ball with guys like Ozzie, Harmon, Wade, and Murray.  
 
Tomorrow is the Red Carpet Gala.  51 living Hall of Famers will be there and it's going to be something truly special.
 
And Sunday of course is INDUCTION DAY!
 
 
Any more thought on who makes up your ALL-TIME HALL OF FAME TEAM?!

I actually almost had him at 2B until I went with Jackie.

Pedro kinda reminds me of David Cone.  Nasty, nasty stuff.  But I don't consider him an "all-time great" for some reason.  Of course it's all subjective.

It's funny how Maddox hardly gets discussed in these type of conversations.  I'm guilty of it too.  I think just because he wasn't a power pitcher.  But his career ERA, with his lack of power, is pretty crazy.  Not to mention something like 10 gold gloves.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

I thought of Maddox but I saw him pitch too much in the postseason where the Umps actually made him throw strikes and he got ripped most times.

First off, it's Maddux.  I'm a Braves fan and I would't put Maddux on an all time team.  He was a great pitcher, but like you said, there were some games where he absoultely got shelled.  Maddux was great with the glove though, the best defensive pitcher of his era.

In fact, if you made me choose a guy to hand the ball to from those mid-90's squads, I'd have to go Smoltz.  Smoltz is an absolute workhorse, although I will admit, It would be hard to not go with Steve Avery :biggrin:.

PETE SMITH, DUDE!  YOU'RE FORGETTING PETE SMITH!

Smoltz was the power pitcher out of that bunch, Maddux had the best control, and Glavine had the best curveball.
