Yes, Joe.. you're a little transparent.



And for me it's no contest: Mickey Mantle. smile

Joe, it may be different if Mantle healed himself properly though.

It's the Mick!


Raw power from both sides of the plate...Triple Crown year, tons of WS homeruns and blazing speed.

I know, I know. Now about my vote: I would want Joe D over Mantle for the CF (or OF) position. If I had an extra spot, Mickey would be it. Mickey beats Joe in the batting, but Joe beats Mickey in fielding and running and is better overall. Joe D is the better pick even though their both great, but in this poll, it's based on opinion, not skills. But if your having trouble deciding, then you might need to go into stats and skills.

I never said YOU had trouble deciding, I was talking on a whole.

I figured that, Joe. I was only "ribbing" back. I was
talking back from the context of the "whole". I, personally, have
no trouble deciding. That's all I was saying. Mickey and my
pops were friends. Both are deceased. I will always be fond
of Mickey and to me, he's one of the greatest ever.

>>>running and is better overall<<<


Mantle was fastest guy in bigs at the time...2.1 to first from the left side...no contest.


Next your going to say that Joe's arm was better...Mantle had a gun...not so sure that Mickey wasn't the best fielding of the two...Joe D hardly stuck out...das it.


The Mick!

However I think that Joe was the better hitter than Mickey. Joe was obviously one of the best hitters in the game, but his career numbers are skewed by the fact that he gave up 4 years of his career to fight in World War II, and that he was a righthander. Back then, left field in Yankee Stadium was 402 feet to straightaway left, and 457 to left-center. If he hadn't missed those years, and played in today's Yankee Stadium, he may have had 500 homers.
