They can't regroup they are not the Mets plus you have an all time second basemen in my book the best who ever played.

That's much better than what you said before... "best who has ever played" ... that just makes me think you don't know anything about the history of the game.

Overall for everything?  I vote for Hank Aaron.

If just hitting?  Then it's the Babe.

Ruth was the ultimate defensive player because he was a really good pitcher he won a ton of World Series with the Red Sox because he was a pitcher. Pitching in my book is a defensive postion the most important one of them all.  I also read books saying his defensive fielding was very under rated he wasn't that bad but people were not looking at that they just wanted to see one of the best hitters of all time he is the best power hitter of all time even over your Barry Bonds.

That pitching thing is nice but that wasn't what you asked Pat.  You didn't ask who was the best all round player ever.  You asked who was the best RIGHT FIELDER.    The ability to upset a hitters timing is not a usable skill for an outfielder.  Therefore, it is not something to consider for the question posed.
None of us saw him play.  So all we have to rate him are his defensive numbers.  Which for the Bambino, when rated against others of his day, do not stand out.

Further, Barry Bonds isn't a part of this discussion either as he was a LEFT fielder.  You asked about people who played (primarily right.

He was a pitcher stick CC Sabathia in the right field or Tiny Tim in the Right field see how they would work out. Won't happen because they can't hit worth shit either.

Except I never argued that Sabathia or Lincecum are among the best right fielders ever.  So once again, your point is moot.

That my point if he was an outfielder to begin with he was have been better. But he was a pitcher and since he was a crazy hitter they had to find a spot for him he was more valuable as a hitter then a pitcher for the Yankees at least. They had to put him someplace he was going to play they didn't have the DH.

First, you don't know he would have been better had he never pitched.  And next, it doesn't matter anyway because we are dealing with what actually happened.  Not what might have happened.

He would of still been the best baseball player of all time and I don't think it is even close who is second.

Who was the best r fielder all around it was Hank Aaron he is the home run king. But Babe Ruth is the best and most famous baseball player of all time. I was talking to someone in another country I said did you ever hear of Hank Aaron true story she said no I then ask her did she hear of Babe Ruth she said yea he was that Yankee guy so In the world Babe Ruth is very famous even by people who don't know what baseball is like Michael Jordan if you don't like basketball or even know what it is people know who Michael Jordan is and it was him.
