  • Greatest Phillies Player Poll 6

    The top five spots in our all-time Greatest Phillies Player Poll have been nailed down. After Mike Schmidt won the #1 spot with a strong showing, we got two ties in a row. First, Grover Cleveland Alexander beat Steve Carlton in the tiebreaker vote for #2, and then Robin Roberts edged out Richie Ashburn for #4.

    We now move on to the #6 spot, where Ed Delahanty and Chuck Klein figure to loom large, and perhaps we will start to see some other players like Del Ennis, Billy Hamilton, and Jim Bunning get support.

    Remember, you are voting for the best player on this list as a Phillie only. This poll will close in 4 days.

    Also, note that the ballot has been expanded to 20 names starting this round. As we get deeper into the list, the votes will begin to be more spread out than what we've seen so far. Please post any suggestions on players who you think should be added to the ballot as we go along.

        I'm with ya KC, it's gotta be Big Ed.

        Not sure who will come next though. The choices become less and less obvious as you work your way down towards the bottom of the top ten and beyond.

        I hope we can keep interest up in this as we go along, I'd love to see it keep going through 25 at least.

            Well, through 1901 actually. He went to the American League and dominated for Washington in '02 and the first part of '03 before his death.

            One of the posters on here made a strong case for him as the #1 Phillie of all-time, and the more I look at him, the less I can argue against it. But when it comes to guys as good as Schmidt, Alexander, Carlton, Roberts, and Ashburn, coming in at #6 ain't bad.

              And it looks like Ed wins it and gets the #6 spot.
