Hey Shaun(of the brain dead)you are obviously a moron.First of all half the players on your list(Sain,McLain,Canseco,etc.)were never considered great or were on any greatest all time lists to begin with.Second,I know it's hard for an idiot like you to understand,but back in the old days(mid-70s and before)the baseball was not juiced and was much tougher to hit especially since most games were played in the daytime.Third,you place players like Ryan,Sutton,Niekro,etc.on your list stating their long careers account for their numbers.Fair enough,so wheres Seaver,Fisk,Morgan,Clemente,Schmidt,Jackson and countless others who played 20 or more years(or close to it).Ever look at Morgan,Schmidt or Jacksons batting averages.And unlike Rizzito or B.Robinson,these players were NOT great fielders.But perhaps your worst inclusion is Thurman Munson.You really put your head up your ass on this one.Unlike Bench or Fisk,Munson played just 10 years.He played in a ballpark that for a righty was near impossible to hit home runs unlike Fenway and Riverfront where Bench could hit pop-ups that would clear the 360 wall and Fisk could clear the green monster.What would they have done in yankee stadiums death valley?In his 9 full seasons Munson hit over 300 5 times.Three times he drove in over 100 RBIS.How many times did Fisk do that in his 20 plus year career?Whats Fisk's and Benchs B.A'S?Do you know any of these things,moron?Munson was a great base runner,great catcher(until a injury hurt his numbers)great PURE HITTER,great leader,great handler of pitchers and has a lifetime B.A of 292,way above Fisk or Bench who were just homerun hitters,nothing more(so where were they better all-around?).In his ten years,Munson had more hits than any other catcher in their first ten years,in history!That includes Berra and Campernella.Next time,before insulting great players(and Munson was great)learn your facts!
