Lifer you're not worthy of a response but ill provide one for the good fans: Joe D was superior to Mays in every facet but speed and glove. As a righty bat in Yankee Stadium Joe hit into a LCF power alley 461 feet away. 361 HR 367 strikeouts Lost his 4/5 best years to WWII Mays played in a joke of a major league park. No comparison. Sorry I know it hurts you, Lifer.




Doesnt hurt me at all as i am not a blind homer like you. You completly forget that baseball players play defense as well.

Sorry folks, but it's only on a Yankee forum that people would insist Joe D. was a better player than Willie M. Check almost every alltime MLB players list on the internet. Mays is rated one of the top 2-3 players of all time on almost every list while Joe D. is rated much lower on pretty well every list. Some of you need to take off the homer specs.

Just read this on the All Time HoF 'er at each position. I'm sure we'd opine differently. I will say the Rollie Fingers pick raised my eyebrows. That WILL change 5 years hence Mo's retirement. He should be a unanimous first balloter.

he should be unanimous but I doubt there will ever be a unanimous first ballot guy...  some idiot writer who never threw a ball in his life always wants to make a "statement" by not voting for someone...

In 1969, during MLB Baseball's 100th aniversary Yankees HOF OF Joe DiMaggio was picked as the greatest living MLB player in their voting, Willie Mays came in 2nd place.

those polls are about are useful as academy awards...  bottom line is that both were great players, and there are very few alive that have actually seen Joe D play in his prime, I doubt if anyone here has seen him...  many of us who saw Mays saw him when he wasn't nearly the player he was at the top of his game...  of course as a Yankee fan I'll take Joe D any day!
