Of all the great players, who do you think is the greatest of all-time?

When reviewing a question like this, one should think about every statistic in the game of baseball. Personally, I feel that in this case pitching doesn't count.

Players like Willie Mays and even Babe Ruth should be taken under consideration.

He was a great all around player.....Didnt he play most of the positions?

What was the name of the guy who played all the positions in one game. He is the best all around

Pete Rose cannot be the best player all around. He was not a very good fielder, and he didn't hit home runs. Just because he is the all-time hit leader doesn't mean he is the greatest ever. Greatest ever means that you hit for average (great average), hits, hit for power, has speed, is a great fielder, and you drive in runs. Pete Rose had hits and he had a decent average .303.

exactly jackson and mays exceled at all phases of the game

True, though I can't go with Jackson because he wasn't allowed to finish his career. Even if he did I don't feel that he could've surpassed Ruth as the greatest player of all time. Though I really like Joe Jackson and I do believe he could've been ONE of the greatest.

he hit like 370 every year he was insane

He wasn't a home run hitter. Ruth was, so how can you say that Jackson was better all-around compared to Babe Ruth?

higher average, better fielder, better arm from the outfield and better base runner

Ruth had a whole career, and he has more hits and homeruns. If Joe Jackson continued his career his batting average would have had to drop. Ruth was also a record setting pitcher.

its hard to say jacksons numbers would drop his numbers were going up and up and he was one of the best athletes ever and i know if he didnt get banned he would have plenty of longevity

I'm not saying that he wouldn't I'm just saying that him getting banned is a loophole so that question will always be up in the air. You can't talk about stats that you think he would've had.
