    I think it's funny and sad that the first time this poll was posted about 11 years ago we had like 15 votes within two days. And that wasn't even during this site's heyday.

      the best Player is probably maddux since he is top5 all time.

      if we talk about value for the Franchise bryant might overtake him if the cubs retain him past his control years. even if bryant makes the HOF and wins 3 MVPs he is unlikely to become a greater Player than maddux but maddux was there only 7 years (and only productive in 5 of them) and bryant could be there for 10+ years and eclipse his value for the Franchise.
      I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.
