      RE: Alltime NY Giants Team

      GIANT, you'll have to forgive Don. If you've read any of his posts, you'll understand that he's gone blind. I saw your pitchers just fine ...

      C - Buck Ewing
      1B - Bill Terry
      2B - Frankie Frisch
      SS - George S. Davis
      3B - Mel Ott
      LF - George Burns
      CF - Willie Mays
      RF - Monte Irvin
      SP - Christy Mathewson, Carl Hubbell, Tim Keefe, Joe McGinnity
      RP - Doc Crandall

        Mel Ott at third base, bly? That's the coward's way out!!! Put Linstrom in there and be forced to leave off an outfielder I say!...only don't ask me which one. I'm too much of a coward to choose.

          Enough moxie to call me a coward, but not enough to overcome your own cowardice? Not a good sign ... ;-)

            I know Willie Mays spend most of his career as a SF Giant but he was still the best centerfielder that the NY giants ever had so he should definitely be on this list.

              It's also not a good sign that I misspelled Lindsrtom's name either. Okay, well I guess you successfully goaded me into it. Here would be my reluctant picks for the All-Time NY Giants team:

              C-Roger Connor
              1B-Bill Terry
              2B-Frankie Frisch
              SS-George Davis
              3B-Freddie Lindstrom
              OF-Mel Ott
              OF-Willie Mays
              OF-Ross Youngs
              P-Christy Mathewson
              P-Carl Hubbell
              P-Amos Rusie
              P-Tim Keefe
              RP-Joe McGinnity (Yeah, he was primarily a starter, but since he retroactively led the league three times in saves I'm not considering it too much of a stretch!)
              MGR-John McGraw

                It's an even worse sign that I managed to spell it wrong two posts in a row!!!

                    Thadford Leon Treadway

                    Just to clarify things for y'all about the "Treadway" confusion.

                    It is "Thadford Leon Treadway," born in Athalone, NC who played in the outfield with Mel Ott and Joe Medwig. I know 'cause he's my dad!!

                    Sorry to say that he passed away several years ago - in the hospital following a heart attack - watching a Braves baseball game. As a matter of fact, my mother and I were holding his hands and we thought he'd gone to sleep. I asked Mother who was pitching that night, and Daddy roused up and said, "Smoltz." Then he left us and went on to the game.

                    He played 'til I was fifteen years old (retired in 1960). We loved his time with the game and he did, too. Thank y'all for remembering him.

                    Best regards,
                    Laura Treadway de Martino

                      I almost vomited coffee everywhere looking at the first few teams with no Mel Ott. Finally some people added posts with some sense! Mel Ott is Mr Giant. To leave him off any Giants greats teams is pure lunacy!

                      unknown fan "good they got three men on base"
                      unknown brooklyn cabbie "which one?"

                        The Giants of New York are the only team to boast HOFers at all positions (not counting the Yanks if you include Frank Baker.)
                        c-Roger Bresnahan
                        1b-Bill Terry or George Kelly
                        2b-Frank Frisch-best remembered as a Card, but had some great years in New York
                        ss-Travis Jackson
                        3b- Freddie Lindstrom
                        of-Mel Ott
                        of-Willie Mays
                        of-Ross Youngs
                        RHP-Christy Mathewson
                        LHP-Carl Hubbell

                        And of course the manager has to be the incomparable Little Napoleon, John McGraw.
                        This came from the Book of Baseball Lists. I actually don't remember which HOF 1bman they listed. But either one would do.

                        Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

                          Outstanding fact that should be better known in the
                          baseball world. Those men also had the honor of
                          playing baseball's most unique park: The Polo Grounds.

                            Leon Treadway

                            "Red" Treadway played minor league ball in my hometown of Portsmouth, Va. He was a member of a fence-busting outfield that consisted of Treadway, Ken Guettler, and Bob Broome. Those "Cubs" were the 1950 Piedmont League (Class B) champions and were managed by another great ex-Giant, Frank "Skeeter" Scalzi.

                              I notice a lot of the picks exclude Mel Ott. Intersting.

                                Now that is my kind of all-time team! I would add a couple of relief pitchers:
                                Ken Trinkle RH and Hooks Iott LH
