    MLB - I think by the time Albert Pujols retires he'll be the best hitter of all time but as of right now Hank Aaron/Barry Bonds share that title. The best pitcher is Nolan Ryan w/o a doubt.

    NBA - Michael Jordan

    NFL - Purely opinionated but Dan Marino is the best QB all-time imo until Favre decides to hang up the pads.

    I always wished Barry Sanders had played on a better team during his era. He was a damn beast and deserved better than what he received.

    MLB: Babe Ruth. Wasn't a bad pitcher, yanno.

    NBA: Hands down, Jordan.

    NHL: I grew up in the Gretzky/Lemieux era, it's got to be the Great One.

    NFL: Sooooo debatable. More than any other sport, it's so position-based. So I'll be a homer and say LT. The real LT, not some d-bag running back. :cool:

    When I think of Babe Ruth, I think of the slugger that he became after he pitched. He was a behemoth of his day. I would consider him definitely in the Top 5 all-time greats but, #1.. might be sketchy

    But that's my point. If you think of him as a slugger mostly, and that makes him a top 5 player, then remember that in 10 years pitching he appeared in 163 games (148 starts) and has a lifetime ERA of 2.28, doesn't that put him squarely in the conversation at #1? How many other players ever have been dominant hitters and pitchers?

    None but Ruth pitched in the deadball era. There were no breaking balls, only fastballs (no 2-seamers, cutters, sinkers, splitters, etc..)
