    SI: Best Players By Number

    Guess which team has 8 of the top 25?

    http://vault.sportsillustrated.cnn.c...1/25/index.htm

    I'll start with this one: Roberto Alomar over Wade Boggs? Really?

    Alomars repuation is ruined by the god awful years he had with the Mets, but B4 his journey to shea he was a no doubt about it 1st ballot hall of famer.

    in their respective primes wade boggs couldnt shine alomars shoes

    this comin from an alomar hater


    Number 16 is a hard call cause Whitey had the better career but at thje there most dominant stages Gooden was untouchable...imagine the career he would of had if he was semi normal

    #57....K-Rod over Santana.
    K-Rod is awesome but i think you have to give it to the 2 Time Cy Young winner over the closer.

  4. #4
    Mike Schmidt over Frank Robinson?

    No way.

    They had Boggs in at #26, I would think wearing 2 different numbers would count against him as well. although I'd still have Alomar over him. Prior to his Mets years Alomar was a 1st ballot HOF like Serp said.

    PS: Some of the high up numbers are classic. Matt Lawton the best #50? Scott Schoeneweis the best #60?

    Sorry to disappoint you, Anthony, but Whitey Ford over Dwight Gooden is not a hard call at all.

    Since SI called it "Best Baseball Players by Number"......Mariano Rivera gets 42 over Jackie Robinson.

    Foxx wore the #2 only 1 year (1935)

    He wore #3 all the other years. Notice he is the runner-up to Babe Ruth

    Yeah i see. He shouldn't be included in that article as having been given consideration as there is no comparison between the two players.

    Jackie's a top 5 2nd baseman of all time. I'd take that over a closer any day, no matter how dominant that closer was.
