    Not sure I would put Ruth on the list.  I consider him to be the best player ever, but he was a pitcher for most of his Red Sox career, and I'm not sure he would be considered one of their best 4-5 pitchers ever (though he was a good one).  IMO, he never played enough in the OF with Boston to merit inclusion from that position.

    Plus there is that Yankee stenchWink

    I would have Yaz under Speaker, Young and Pedro.  Maybe Foxx too, but he only had a handful of great seasons for the Sox so as with Ruth he shouldn't really be on the list anywhere.

    It was fine. If I really studied it, I might have some quibbles here and there with the top 100 that they did, but nothing really stands out as anything agregious. 

    It's hard because after you get past some no-brainers -- Williams and Yaz at 1-2 -- you're stuck comparing eras and various lengths of stints on top of that.

    Ted Williams has to be number 1. There can be no argument about that. After that , it is just a matter of opinion. Obviously , guys like Pedro and Yaz belong near the top.

    Though his career offensive stats may not be HOF worthy.....I would think that the Impact Tek had on this team and the championships warrnats him consideration, probably more so than Nomar.

    Fred Lynn, Bob Stanley, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield should sue for non-support. Nah, it's hard to nail down 25, the 25 listed pretty good list overall.

    I would add Dustin Pedroia to this list even this early in his career.

    Maybe, except I think Manny's negative antics and the way things ended should be considered. I'm OK where Rice is, but I'm OK with moving Evans up.

    Heck as clutch as Luis Tiant was, I'd give him the ball tomorrow and say, "It's not for the first pitch. It's to show these young bucks how a real clutch pitcher gets it done when he's not in his prime."
