  • Jim Rice, Dewey, and Fred Lynn

    Over an extended period has there been a better trio from left to right?

  • #2
    It depends on yur definition of extended period...

    3 years?
    5 years?

    The Tigers outfield of Cobb, Crawford, and Heilmann come to mind.

    The "Million Dollar Outfield" of Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, and Duffy Lewis was pretty famous back in the day. I'm not sure how great Duffy Lewis was though.

        They played parts of 7 seasons together.

        Dimaggio, Keller and Henrich come to mind.

          A less facetious answer would be Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, and Davy Jones.

          Heck they probably aren't the best Boston trio. Try Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, and Duffy Lewis.

            The best I can think of from recent memory might be Cleveland's outfield of Manny Ramirez, Albert Belle, and Kenny Lofton.

            The mid 90's Colorado Rockies outfield of Walker, Bichette, and Burks wasn't too shabby.

            Going a bit further back: The Pittsburgh outfield of Bonds, Bonilla, and Van Slyke was hyped up quite a bit as a great trio.

              Meusel, Ruth, and Combs had about 5 years together.
              Bell, Moseby, and Barfield were pretty good.
              Riggs Stephenson, Hack Wilson, and Kiki Cuyler could hit some.

                surely not the best, but a fun one

                Valentine, Dawson, Cromartie

                you didn't run against them...and they could hit...for a couple of seasons that is

                and even though I have been labeled a Yankee hater...

                what about 1961 Yankees.....Mantle, Maris, Berra/Howard??

                and what about 1951....even though it was only one season and you didn't get much out of either one, how impressive is the mere idea of DiMaggio and Mantle in the same outfield


                how about the 1968 Tigers and their 5 OF Rotation of Kaline, Horton, Northrup, Mickey Stanley and Gate Brown??

                Northrup and Brown were good, but they were trapped behind player...free agent era would have them making bigger names for themselves

                but I will agree for an extended period that Boston OF was pretty impressive...and the question is how did they not win it all??

                  heres a couple more


                  Kansas City

                  LF Johnny Damon
                  CF Carlos Beltran
                  RF Jermaine Dye


                  Expos

                  LF Moises Alou
                  CF Marquis Grissom
                  RF Larry Walker

                  2002 Cardinals

                  LF Albert Pujols
                  CF Jim Edmonds
                  RF JD Drew

                  1985 Cardinals
                  LF Vince Coleman
                  CF Willie McGee
                  RF Andy Van Slyke



                  what would be your best defensive OF ever??

                  Boston late 70's had the potential...but you didn't see much of it

                  Yaz - Lynn - Dewey


                  Chet Lemon and Gary Pettis were in the OF together...but it was past Chet's prime and the 3rd OF stunk

                    Amen. Cleveland couldn't keep them together too long, but that outfield of Belle, Ramirez, and Lofton was awesome.

                      that is why I love it here
                      throw 3 good ones out there and you all can tastefully argue for others
                      enjoy the season!

                        --Speaker was easily the best of the 6, but all three modern guys are better than Hooper or Lewis.

                            Bobby Veach was in that mix as well.
