By denigrating Joe D as such you are only showing your complete ignorance and irrational twisting of stats and history to fit your twisted agenda. While many Red Sox fans may be very knowledgeable about MLB, you obviously are not one of them. Did you know that when Joe D retired because of injuries after the 1951 season at the age of 36, he was fifth all-time in HRs, behind only Ruth, Foxx, Ott and Gehrig? Ted Williams won the Triple Crown twice, including hitting .406 in 1941, but did not win the MVP either time. Joe did. Must be the Yankee PR mill. Joe D was a great Center Fielder. Williams was a below average fielder. Stats can back that up in addition to those who have seen them play. In 1969, sportswriters named Joe DiMaggio baseball's Greatest Living Player. He held that title until he died in 1999. Arguments can be made now that it is Mays, Aaron or Bonds, but not many pick Williams although I think he might have been the best hitter ever. Wouldn't the Boston Board be better suited to your needs? ROT IN HELL, O'MALLEY!
