  • Who was the best orioles superstar ever?

    I think Brooks Robinson was the best ever!

    From the list, overall, I'd say Frank Robinson. Of course, he only spent six years with the Orioles, but counting his overall career, mostly with the Reds, he was the best of the three. Counting just the time with the Orioles, Brooks and Cal would give him a run (though that fabulous triple crown season looms heavy). Guys like Jim Palmer and Eddie Murray could easily be thrown into the mix too.

      I think the reason cal got the votes here is because they never saw brooks or frank play in person.

        Frank was the most dynamic player they ever had.

                  If this is a popularity contest then it is Brooks or Cal. The best career as an Oriole is most likely Eddie Murray or Jim Palmer. I assume of course you are ignoring their SLB origins.

                  Since this seems to be an unobjective poll, I have seen all the players named play going back to the day the Orioles began play in Baltimore.

                      HAHAHA

                      I hope my son loves the Red Sox as much as you love the Orioles, Brian.

                      My favorite player is Cal, Orioles or any other team.

                        cal was great but he was saddled with a team that on average won 10-15 games fewer per season that brooks' clubs

                              I'm jealous too. I wish I could've seen the glory days of Robinson-Robinson-Powell!

                              Frank Robinson usually gets my vote for best career Oriole, despite playing more seasons in Cincy. Whether the team was headed for good times or not, Frank is given credit for crystallizing the organization for two decades, including those great years after he left.

                              However, if you ask for the greatest superstar in O's history, it'd be between Cal and Brooks. After witnessing the events surrounding Cal's retirement, I must put Mr. Ripken at the head of the class. He was Mr. Baltimore for a long, long time and something tells me the organization did not bend over backwards for Brooks as much as they did for Cal.
