In response to SportsGenius1's comment:
Dewey was the best RF of all time! Sorry Roberto!!! Dewey threw guys out at 3b from the deepest parts of RF in Fenway with regularity. Also if you are comparing a rookie to the best ever you should probably put down the pipe.
I also believe he was as good as Roberto but REGULARLY threw guys out at third???
He average 1.4 to third 3.0 to second and 2.5 to home in 19 years. also had two assist to first
RC averaged 2.6 to 3rd, 5.3 to 2nd, 3.55 to home and 10 at first in 18 yrs
Let me restate my first line
NO ONE is close to Roberto Clemente
LOVE my Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.
Well, this is a RS forum, so what did U expect?
I always thought Colavito was in this company as well. This guy Puig looks pretty good, too.
Others that come to mind are Carl Furillo - The Reading Rifle, a young Dave Parker, perhaps a young Reggie Jax, Johnny Callison, Jimmy Piersall before the arm injury - suffered in a throwing contest with Mays before an ASG in the late 50s, Winfield, Cesar Geronimo, Ichiro a while back, and in CF, Mays; who supposedly threw guys out at home trying to tag up from the CF warning track.
To claim JBJ is with these guys is a little ridiculous; sort of a heat of the moment proclamation by the OP, who has a tendency to do this.
Reggie Smith and Yaz, who were almost as good as the guys stated above, if not arguably by a smidge, would blow him away.
