Criteria is critical.


We are influenced by who the stars were when we were 12-15 years old; our favorite players. That said, I tend to come down for the players that were most feared: the pitcher/hitter if your life were on the line, clutch guys that could win the big one for you. My list is Ruth, Aaron, Mays, Williams, Mantle, Clemente, Bob Gibson, Spahn, Koufax, Musial. Next line includes Rivera, Jeter, Rose, Bonds, Yaz, Joe D, Cobb, Hornsby, Bench, Gehrig. IMO, the top 5 separated themselves, leaving not much separation for the next 15-20-30 players: Marichal, Eckersley, Berra, Griffey Jr, Oz Smith, Ichiro, Clemons, Ortiz, Ripken, Palmer, Feller, McCovey, Banks......
