albert belle really gets forgotten for how good those numbers show
Oct 26th, 2010 at 10:38 GMT
You need to make "Griffey" an answer.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 12:00 GMT
You can take Ventura, but I will take Ripken any day.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 12:19 GMT
Great quiz, I'd love to see the source. Can't believe I forgot the 1B. As for Ripken, I agree, but he didn't really take to 3B until late in the decade, which I assume eliminates him from contention for that and SS.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 14:37 GMT
Yeah Cal played SS for a majority of the 90s, not 3B. And a good chunk of his prime came in the late 80s. Decent quiz overall, but like others said you need to accept Griffey.
Oct 26th, 2010 at 14:57 GMT
perhaps a bit more time?
Oct 26th, 2010 at 17:00 GMT
robin ventura over matt williams is the interesting pick
Oct 26th, 2010 at 19:54 GMT
Source is Bill James' Baseball Historical Abstract (2001). I'll fix Griffey. I'm not sure if Ripken was all that good in the 90s, anyway, although Ventura is a very interesting pick.
Oct 27th, 2010 at 02:23 GMT
Re: Ripken After his MVP season in 1991, he was barely average offensively (I think he only had 1 OPS+ season above 100 after '91). It's justifiable to leave him off a list of greatest 90s players. But he was the best SS of the 80s, no doubt (Yount could have given him a run, but he moved to the outfield in '85).
Oct 27th, 2010 at 02:25 GMT
I agree awix. If he weren't such a hot head, he really could have been one of the greatest players of all time. It saddens me that more people don't recognize how great of talent he had.
Oct 28th, 2010 at 20:05 GMT
Belle was absolutely robbed of the 95 MVP. Mo Vaughn was good, but Albert simply dominated the league with 50 HR and 50 2B.
Jul 7th, 2011 at 12:09 GMT
I don't understand how Albert Belle makes the cut at right field. He was a left fielder until 1999. For the decade: 1002 games in left field, 156 games in right field.
Jul 7th, 2011 at 13:10 GMT
I wonder how James had Kevin Brown ahead of guys like Smoltz, Cone, Mussina, and Pedro.
Jul 7th, 2011 at 13:59 GMT
I knew Piazza was good but holey cow! Those numbers are crazy!
Jul 7th, 2011 at 20:15 GMT
@mflournoy: Yeah, I expected that to be the first comment. And no offense JTM, but even if we were accepting Cal as a 3rd baseman for the 90-99 list, he wouldn't be in the top 5.
Jul 7th, 2011 at 20:27 GMT
Out of curiosity, did you purposely add the ! after Randy Johnson's 315 K?
Jul 8th, 2011 at 01:21 GMT
I can't wait for the Moneyball movie to come out. Great quiz.
Jul 8th, 2011 at 03:50 GMT
I know I'll get voted down for mentioning it, but seeing someone expressing wonder at Piazza's gaudy numbers kinds of rubs me the wrong way, so - steroids.
Jul 8th, 2011 at 20:02 GMT
Brett11: yes, I did add the "!" Thanks for the plays today!
Jul 12th, 2011 at 03:43 GMT
Ventura is quite a surprise here. And Pedro should be in over Brown.
Jul 13th, 2011 at 00:21 GMT
@mraithel13: you're right about Belle getting jobbed in the MVP balloting in '95. I watched that season from beginning to end, and Belle was the heart of that Indians offense--both Manny and Jim Thome had yet to truly hit their strides as hitters. No one has ever hit 50 homers and 50 doubles in the same season other than Belle, and he did it in a shortened season to boot (although some would argue his bat corking contributed to those numbers...). If only he wasn't such a jerk, he'd be more widely remembered as one of the best Indians of all time.
Feb 23rd, 2012 at 17:30 GMT
Remember that Pedro was a reliever until midway through the decade.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 21:58 GMT
really no problems with this list. not too big on brown over martinez, but he did have more longevity over the course of the decade. if pedro was in the league (and serving as a starting pitcher sooner) 3 years earlier i'd give him the edge though.
