Smith is for sure look at that OPS. Mitchell 89 was so good and his 90 wasnt bad.

Bonilla was also up there, Bonds is iffy and the one I had the least confidence in.

BTW since you brought up lonnie smith. He cost the braves a championship by being faked out by knoblauch in 91 and i am still salty about that... lol

Honestly Smith didnt even come to mind until I looked up the stats, it is surprising how good his numbers were those 2 years.

And yeah, I was shocked with the outcome of that series, I thought Braves were by far the better team.

Speaking of, I didnt even see Puckett's numbers for 89-90

yeah i think puckett is the most underrated player of that era. I really think he was the most complete player from that particular time. He was a five tool player. He was also right before bonds(never a five tool player ask sid bream) and griffey. Tell you the truth, i don't know if anyone was better from 89 to 94. Barry larkin? was he that good in that time? or was he more mid 90's? im old lol

I'm old too. And the fact you just named my favorite player of all time means we can be friends.

I'd say more mid 90s for Barry, his MVP was 95, but his 96 year was his best. Still a great player even in the early 90s, but I am bias.

Larkin is probably the second best player of the 90's. I would argue right behind griffey. I think you could put bonds above him but to me bonds didn't become inhuman until 2001. I think bonds was still a top 5 player in the 90's but not the best. I am sure other's will see it different. I wanted larkin on the braves. I really thought he would have put them over the top with the best fielding ss and hitting ss. There were rumors in 97 that they were going to trade for him but idk what the asking price was or if it was even true.

SDS

top players of the 90's

  1. Griffey
  2. Larkin
  3. Bonds
  4. Maddox
  5. Johnson
  6. Martinez
  7. Clemens
  8. Mcguire( arguable)
    9 gwynn
  9. Thomas
  10. I think you can make arguments for alomar,mcgriff, walker, bagwell, biggio, I rod,

That.........would be awesome!! Also throw in snapping the bat like a twig.

lol! Now we get into the discussion for when we ever get a Manny Ramirez card... Does he high 5 a fan? Do we get the cut-off animation from LF? Running a ground rule double like a HR celebration?

As a Reds fan I was glad he never played for another team, but remember a couple times he was nearly traded, the one I remember the most was he was all set to go to Mets but he blocked it. Not sure I remember that one, but that was the time there were really shopping him hard.

I have no problems with anyone saying he is #2 behind Jr. Certainly doing it clean, but again I am bias. Hard to not put Gwynn in there too.

Living in the Cincinnati area a lot of old times pick Concepcion over Barry. but I dont see it. Until Barry, most teams took a speedy glove man at SS, he broke that mold.

The only fielders that were better were smith at the end of the 80's and beginning of the 90's and then visquel late 90's. IDK tho, Dave was good but never great in my opinion but he was right before my time. I have only seen old tape of him when i watch the reds blow world series hahaha.

91 with smith geeting deeked out by knoblauch and losing the greatest game 7 ever and then mark wohlers throwing a slider to jim leyritz in 96 when the braves were winning by 3 and leading the series 2 to 1.

It wouldn't be that bad of a card, low contact, high power, strong arm, good speed, low vision, low discipline. His accumulated stats didnt look good because he never played a full season. In 89 he may have had a chance at 40/40 club but only played 135 games. Slugged .523 in 1990.

I think the card would be a lot of fun, but no mistake about it. He was a better football player than baseball, but a better baseball player than Deion Sanders.

This actually isn't true. If he didn't play football, he would have been a borderline hof baseball player. He was only getting better and was already one of the top players in 89. Football was his 3rd best sport behind track and baseball.

You are making a projection, yes he got better, but I can show you a dozen guys who looked like they were getting better only to fall back down to earth. You can only look at what he did not what he could have done, and he accomplished more on the football field than the baseball diamond at the professional level.

i think if you are talking college then i would agree. Professionally tho he was just a really good rb and maybe even all pro. Baseball he was a top 10 player for 2 years until the other sport took his legs. I know he gets more credit for football for the heisman but he was a better baseball player than football player. He just had more tools to offer when it comes to speed, arm, and power. He was also cutting the strike outs back.

I respectfully disagree. To be honest, you got it backwards. Bo was an elite football player! He was a just above average good baseball player with very unique gifts that could’ve allowed him to become an elite baseball player. An accurate card of Bo would read something like this: 70 contact, 105 power, 65 fielding (he was not an elite outfielder) 99 arm (dude had a cannon), 99 speed (fastest player in the game).

I disagree about him not being an elite outfielder. He could get to everything. He looked awkward, but i think it was because he had a football body playing baseball. I however agree with your contact and power claim. I think those are very fair. I do however think people tend to overrate how good he was at football compared to baseball. I am an auburn fan and grew up with the guy. I watched him religiously. I also think people thinking I am not saying was an elite football player. He was. I just think he was a better baseball player. I also think that bo thinks that too. His skills just translated better.

Fun debate for sure!! He was the most unique athlete of all time and in my opinion, the greatest athlete of all time!! I look forward to him being in the game!!!

To be honest, Bo Jackson is a great example of what CAPs should be used for.

Very popular icon... But a real card of his wouldn't be all that great. So CAP him and pump him up.

lebron?? heck no... I don't know enough about wilt but Jim brown and bo are the two best athletes i've ever seen. Jim thorpe may be in that discussion too but again don't know enough about him.And yes bo was a top 10 to 15 player by 1990. It was only be about 125 games because he got hurt and then had the career ender.

Guy LeBron james is 6'9" 260 pounds lol show me another person in history outside of Wilt Chamberlain that has moved like that in that type of body lol

So? heck if that is all you want then almost all small forwards are among the greatest athletes of all time. Heck look at anthony davis and townes who can do everything bron can do. The greatest athletes have to had been good at multiple things or arguments could be made about soccer or nfl recievers being in the mix based off the athleticism it takes to do what they do.
