100 Greatest Baseball Players of All-Time

There have been over 18,000 players since 1901. That means the top 100 players are the top 0.5%. How we play baseball has evolved over time. The fundamentals, however, remain mostly unchanged. I may prefer Willie Mays over Ty Cobb. You prefer Frank Robinson over Hank Aaron. Maybe you like Clemens over Walter Johnson. Making a list like this incredibly subjective. These are the best of the best and regardless of what anyone tries to convince you of, with the exception of Babe Ruth at number 1, the top 20 or 30 are pretty interchangeable.

Having said that here is my top 100 baseball players of all-time, in my preferred order.

  • You could split Mariano Rivera’s regular season career into 2 and each half would be an all-time great RP career. Then just to top it off, HE PITCHED 2 SEASONS WORTH OF INNINGS IN THE POSTSEASON WITH A 0.70 ERA. And was the only unanimous HOF ever. Jeter and Yogi should be on there too, but I think I only saw 2 catchers and I don’t feel like having the Jeter argument so I’ll ignore that. Leaving Rivera off is ridiculous though.

  • So you have Mark McGwire and Joey Votto ahead of Warren Spahn and Mariano Rivera? Please go ahead and try and justify that.

  • The stats of steroid freaks should not be included in this list. They are literally major league cheaters. In the olympics records set while using performance enhancing drugs are stricken from the books. So should it be in baseball.

  • Joey Votto is the 54th best player of all-time? I can’t see how you justify that. He’s a top 15 first baseman, I’ll give you that, but how is he a greater player than Warren Spahn?

    You need to consider adjusting for era. According to your list FIVE of the ten greatest players of all-time played during World War I. Do you think that makes sense? And seven of your top ten played before baseball was integrated. I also question your ranking of Joe Jackson. You mean to tell us that his career was greater than Ken Griffey Jr. and Cal Ripken Jr.?
