Top 100 players of all-time: 60-51

60. Warren Spahn

1.19/75.3 %/3.44/93.4

Spahn had a 3.09 ERA in seventeen major league seasons. He missed four years due to being in World War II. Spahn still won 363 games – the most ever by a left-handed pitcher. He won 177 games after his 35th birthday. He led them to two Pennants and a World Series title. Spahn also made fourteen All-Star games.

59. Duke Snider

.380/.540/.405/67.2

He was a five-tool player. He could steal, hit, drive in runs, and walk. In fact he finished in the top three in stolen bases twice, leading the NL in homers, RBI, total bases (three times), runs (three times), hits, walks, slugging, and OBP. He led the Dodgers to six pennants and went to eight All-Star games.

58. Chipper Jones

.406/.541/.404/76.7

Jones is one of the best switch hitters to ever play baseball. After 1995 Jones started a streak of eight consecutive seasons with at least 100 RBI. He won the MVP award in 1999 and made five All-Star games.

57. Pete Rose

.375/.409/.353/75.4

Banned from the Hall of Fame, but not my list. Rose was a big part of the Red Machine in the 70’s. His MVP season in 1970 helped them win the World Series. He also won the 1963 NL Rookie of the year and two Gold Gloves. Rose was an All-Star seventeen times. He also has more hits than any other major league player.

56. Ken Griffey Jr.

.371/.541/.387/79.2

One of the best players on those 90’s Seattle Mariners teams was Ken Griffey Jr. He was the 1997 AL MVP and he won a total of ten Gold Glove awards. Eleven times he has been selected to the All-Star Game. Griffey has a total of 630 home runs and if not struck by injury he could be challenging Bond’s home run record.

55. Joe Jackson

.423/.517/.439/62.9

Another banned player made my list. Jackson was offered money to blow the 1919 World Series, but he posted great numbers while in the series. He was great at getting on base. Let this man in the Hall of Fame!

54. Arky Vaughan

.406/.453/.402/75.6

Vaughn was one of the best players during the 1930’s. He led NL shortstops in putouts in 1936, 1938, and 1939, assists in 1936, 1938, and 1939, and fielding percentage in 1940. In 1935 he hit .385 one of the best averages by a shortstop ever. He is a nine time All-Star.

53. Roger Connor

.397/.486/.404/87.1

Connor’s 138 home run record was broken by Babe Ruth after he retired. He was one of the games earliest players and his career was over before 1900.

52. Rod Carew

.393/.429/.370/79.3

Carew was a genius with the bat and on the base paths. He won seven batting titles and was the best bunter of his generation. Carew stole home a total of seventeen times. In 1967 he won the Rookie of the Year. Then ten years later he won the MVP. Carew was an eighteen time All-Star.

51. Johnny Mize

.397/.562/.433/70.1

Mize won the home run title, batting title, and three RBI titles. Even in his numbered days as a ball player he helped the Yankees win five World Series. In 1952 he hit a home run in games three, four, and five. He also made ten All-Star appearances.
