    I'm stunned that I even put together this list, let alone do the research, because I'm a Yankees fan. But when someone at work (who's a Sox homer of the worst kind) said that Manny Ramirez will be a greater hitter than Ted Williams, I definitely blew a few circuits. Trying to figure out who is the "greatest hitter ever" is very difficult to determine, but since Man-Ram (a nickname I would never want to have) just joined the 500-HR club, I thought this would be a nice little topic of debate.

    In my mind, there's no debate as to who is the greatest hitter in Sox history, but I'd like to find out if anyone disagrees and who people think is the second-greatest hitter in Sox history.

    I always thought Bucky Dent was the greatest Red Sox hitter... [/ducking]
     
  5. Ted Williams and it's not even close. He is one of the top 5 best hitters of all time. Manny, not so much.

    Is there any question here? Ted dominates that board.

    Why the fuck are you even asking the question?

    Up next, who was the greatest player in Chicago Bulls history? My money's on Artis Gilmore.
