    MLB says it's Aaron, Mays, Koufax, and Bench.

    I would take Bench and Koufax off and replace with Bonds and Jeter. There are actually several players I would put on the list before Bench and Koufax: Griffey, Schmidt, Clemens, Randy Johnson, Maddux, Frank Robinson, etc..

    What do you think?

    Bonds and Seaver (or maybe Clemens) over Koufax and Bench.
     
  4. Bench is an interesting choice. Why?
    I think you could make a case for the other three ... But Bench?
     
  5. Funny that none of four played in the last 30 years.

    Game's in Cincinnati and lots of folks there voted, I guess.
     
  7. In that case, stunned it wasn't Rose.

    Based on the ovation he got, Rose doesn't seem as popular as he was 10-15 years ago.

    Piazza's the best hitting catcher that's played.
