Bonds was the most consistently great player of the decade, but what Griffey did between 93-2000 excluding 95 which I can only assume was injury plagued was ridiculous. I'm gonna have to go with Bonds personally because of the speed element he added to the game. If he'd played on some more talented teams he probably would've been a much bigger superstar than he was in the 90's, and likely never done steroids as a result.

As for pitchers, sorry but there isn't a debate to be had...

I love Pedro, but he didn't have a halfway decent season until 94, and didn't become dominant until 97. Hes owner of the two greatest seasons ever by a pitcher, but you can't say he was the best pitcher of the 90's when you have other guys entering the prime of their careers right in 1990, and sustaining throughout the decade.

Pedro didn't become the dominant Pedro we know until 97. To my best knowledge, all of those guys above pitched throughout the entire decade and were good the entire time. Thats why he isn't on it. Pedro was the best pitcher on the planet from 97-2003, and the best pitcher EVER to walk on this earth and pick up a baseball in 99-00, but not the best of the 90's.

The correct answer to this question is either Ken Griffey Junior or Barry Bonds (i hate him too btw), either answer will be acceptable. Those saying otherwise are just simply wrong. Watching Junior's swing is like baseball porn.

The 95 Indians are one of the best teams in recent history. Albert Belle was a MONSTER in the 90s!!! Easily the most feared player on and off the field. Dude was entertaining as hell to watch, you never knew what you were gonna see and he always played intensely. The energy he gave off could not be matched. I wish Belle would've played for 10 more years because his passion for the game was incredible. I'll agree with OP on this one. I also don't suspect Belle of ever juicing.

Post up your top 10 players of the 90s. You can even break it down to the top 5 hitters and top 5 pitchers.

One, two, and maybe even three are easy for me. The rest isn't. But rest assured Bonds, Griffey are the top two. Bro's and I can argue all day about who should be one and who should be two. But 99% of us unbiased fans will agree that anything less than those two being in the top spots is downright criminal.

if you didnt write bonds, you have a severe mental disability

from 1990-1999 he averaged 36 HRs, 108 RBIs, 34 steals, 114 walks, a .302 BA, 434 OBP, 602 SP, and a 1.036 OPS.

and if you were to average it to per 162 games, those numbers become 41 HRs, 122 RBIs, 39 steals and 130 walks.

those are equal to pujols, and when you factor in speed, defense, and difficulty of position- better than pujols.

and this was before bonds went on that ridiculous 5 year stretch.

i dont think people fully grasp how good he was. in the 90's alone he had three 10 WAR seasons, whereas pujols so far has had one. from 2001 to 2004, he didnt post a WAR below 10.5.

I always thought Olerud was really under-rated. Not the best player of the 90s, but definitely an extremely overlooked player.

indeed. and i think, in the big picture, he would've been less overlooked had he stayed with the Mets after '99. i liked todd zeile but it is a damn shame olerud was only there for one season

didnt read thread

anyone who doesnt say barry bonds is a phaggot in denial

yay ken griffey media licks your gouch. shoved down our throats because of your reckless dives that ruined your career. in the 90s, bonds had a higher BA, SLG, OBP, BB, AB/HR, AB/RBI, Steals, less Ks. 400 less at bats bc of walks and yet only a handful less HRs cause he hit them at a better rate than Griffey.

bow to the fkn king of the 90s, 00s, history

The best MLB player of the 90's was 100 percent Ken Griffey Jr.

This shouldn't even be a debate

It was very close b/w him and Bonds. Griffey had more hr power and was a better fielder, but Bonds was an incredibly patient hitter and a major stolen base threat. Griffey gets the slight edge.

Bonds was the best player of the 2000's and he only played 7/10 seasons.



EDIT: I think Bonds is the greatest player to ever live but when I think of the 90's I think of Griffey before bonds...probably because I was young and really only watched AL ball.

You know, it's not like Bonds was a slouch when it came to defense, unless you ignore the gold gloves.

And that's the thing about Bonds. Can you just imagine how many homers he'd have if he wasn't walked all the time and, more importantly, if he took more risks instead of being one of the most patient hitters ever?

BRB 1,0000 lifetime homeruns.

I don't think people get, PED's or not, Bonds was ALWAYS a great player. His biggest knock was until 2002 he didn't show up in the post season. And if it wasn't for Baker's stupidity he would have gotten his ring in 2002. Game 6 still makes me sick (taking nothing away from the Angeles) but talk about doing everything possible to beat ourselves that night.

Even with injuries, Griffey. Talent wise, he was the absolute best. Injuries stopped him from being the most successful.

Just mind boggling how some of you don't even have Griffey or Bonds on your lists.

Do you even watch baseball?
