Mike Trout is off to a start that can challenge it, but can he stick in CF long enough is my big question.
I think Griffey was the most talented player all time. I mean, statistically, he is one of the top 30 or less in almost every major category.
Give the guy 145 games a year for 22 or 23 years and he would have crushed everything.
I still think with injuries he was one of the top 10-20 best players ever.
