Willie Mays turned 87 yesterday!
Best there ever was.
I think so but I am biased.
Ted > Willie
.400 Last to hit over .400
.344 lifetime average
Spent nearly 5 seasons at war flying jets during his prime.
Ya... I'll take the greatest hitter ever over Willie, and that's no slight on Willie, he was amazing as well. Probably the most well rounded baseball player ever.
Willie had the defense, base running, plus spent a crap load of years hitting out of Windlestick.
Ted was arguably one of the best pure hitters ever but he wasn't a 5 tool player like Willie.
Wait, did Willie waste some years in the Army? Oh snap!
Posey needs to quit being stubborn and move to 1st base. He’s too old and still too valuable to the team to keep beating his body up like that. Didn’t they just spend a high pick on a catcher?
As far as I’m concerned they can trade Posey for whatever they can get for him. He’s now on the wrong side of 30; his power numbers are awful; he slow and now is facing hip surgery. Give me a couple of top young prospects and it’s all good.
The Giants have to understand their team is old and they really need to blow it up. Start with Sabean and Bochy and let’s get young.
Nobody on the team should be untouchable including MadBum and Crawford.
What a train wreck.
Management made a huge mistake by trying to reload this season. Trying to appease the fan base by signing washed up Andrew McCutcheon and Evan Longoria. They're turning into the post World Series era Phillies.
And now Posey is going to delay the surgery on his hip. Why? Get it done right now and be ready for another mediocre year in 2019.
Pretty much done with that guy. Move him to first base? Don't we have enough guys starting who can't hit the long ball? Wake up Giants. And if they did move him to 1B what to do with Belt? Nobody taking on that contract (3 years left) with his injury history the last three years.
Yeah -- train wreck.
Stick a fork in him. He is done. I know he's been the face of the franchise along with Bum and a lock for the HOF, but time to cut bait and start the rebuild. Get some young players in here or we will wind up like the Phils for years to come.
Sad day. Willie Mc ... a man amongst boys.
Sorry to hear that he passed. One of the most feared sluggers ever.
