I agree, a couple will stand out twenty years from now, but the majority will be lost amongst the pages of history. I think it was simpler to pick out the true talent back in the day but there are still a couple ahead of the pack now.
The era of Babe Ruth was very different to todays Baseball.
Back in those days, many players played just because they loved Baseball so much.
Then money started to become more of a concern, and the climate changed. The current team, while very talented lack that same passion and love.
We all remember the classic and popular players such as Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle, players who just seemed to be timeless in a way.
Do you think that we will ever be looking at the current team in that same way or no?
I have my doubts, but I know it's still possible.
I disagree. There are plenty of players who would fit the old standards. they just aren't the ones you see on the front page signing multi-million dollar contracts. Out of a team of a dozen or more long term players you only hear about a couple, often the ones who do drugs and flitter from team to team like a bee in a field of flowers.
