    Yo why you gotta always make it about him
    "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

    Why? It shouldn't be painful. The same argument for Joe Morgan as an all-time great works for Rickey.

    This is an interesting article about Rickey Henderson from the Bill James 1992 Baseball Book. He mentions Joe Morgan briefly but the main point of the article is to answer the question as to whether Willie Mays would have been a better leadoff hitter than Rickey?
