    Baseball's Mount Rushmore

    MLB.com was recently asking current players if Major League Baseball had a Mount Rushmore, what four players faces would they have carved into it?

    I'm going to go with:

    Babe Ruth
    Jackie Robinson
    Walter Johnson
    Ty Cobb


    Thoughts? What four players would you put on baseball's Mount Rushmore?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'd probably replace Johnson with Cy Young and possbily Robinson with Aaron. Ruth and Cobb sound good to me.

    I toyed with that thought, but even though Young has the gawdy win numbers, I think Johnson was the better pitcher.

    Robinson and Ruth are no brainers...

    Too many people would see Cy Young and Walter Johnson and say "who the heck are those guys?" (Not me of course.)

    So I'm going with Cal Ripken. And I guess I have to pick a pitcher, so I will take Cy Young.

    I think Willie Mays or Hank Aaron would be there before Cal Ripken, and that isn't a knock on Cal at all.

    Barry Bonds
    Mark McGwire
    Rafael Palmeiro
    Sammy Sosa

    They're the only ones with heads big enough to fit on Mt. Rushmore

    I would have put Aaron on there, but felt compelled to have one pitcher.

    You had Ruth on there, he pitched.

    You'd have to put Robinson and Cobb on different mountains, possibly in different hemispheres.

    Seriously, I would go with Ruth, Robinson, Aaron, and Cy Young.

    Ted Williams' head is available for Mt. Rushmore if they can keep it cold enough.
