Do you think Mantle's MVP's,Titles etc. outweighs Murray's production i.e., more RBI's (over 1900) & more hits (over 3000) than Mantle?
Yep, but not by much. Too bad Mantle had so many injuries. I've seen that clip several times where he stepped into a drain at Yankee Stadium and tore up his knee. He was playing left and Joe D. was playing center.
Interesting choice however, I'd be more inclined to take Roberto Alomar over Rose. Alomar played 7 less seasons and was nearly as productive and stole a ton more bases. Additionally, Alomar's defense makes him a better all around player.
Jones is having a great season and has been a great player for many years. It's interesting to note that Chipper has almost as many career steals as Mantle, who is widely considered to be one of the fastest ball players. Jones is top 3 in my book.
