    both were 5 tool players and dont forgot bonds has won i believe 8 gold gloves so he was just as good playing defense as was ken griffey jr

    thats simply not true. all awards aside, Griffey was one of the best to ever play the most demanding position in the outfield

    Oh yeah, JR also had to go up against Bernie Williams for the gold glove too. FYI

    Bonds was that dude even before the steroids. He was a 30-30 guy....

    Without the steroids 🤬 he was probably still headed to the Hall. I think some people on here are probably to young to remember how good Barry was.

    No he was not, Bonds arm was straight garbage. I mean who the 🤬 was Bonds going up against for those gold gloves, Jr was going up against Kenny Lofton every year. I can't even think of a great defensive left fielder from the national league in the 90s.

    True.........

    lol... Bonds couldnt throw Sid Bream slow ass out when he scored that game winning run back in 92. And he was coming from second...

    Most people dont know that was Bonds who threw that ball from the outfield.

    But other than the arm Bonds was a good defender.

    When i was younger ken griffey jr was one of the reason i even cared and at times watched baseball.

    Most stats would favor bonds but i always liked griffey,dude had one of the most swagged out swings in baseball.

    Threads like this show that some of ya'll don't know 🤬 about baseball. LMAO
    Bonds and it's not even close. He had one of the best hitting eyes ever, and is argurably the GOAT.

    Bonds was a better all around player but Griffey was more exciting player to watch.

    Many baseball pundits were perplexed at reasoning Bonds had for wanting to take HGH, he already had the talent.

    🤬 didn't need steroids to be great.

    The story goes that bonds and griffey had a dinner and at that dinner bonds said he was tired of all the attention mcgwire and Sosa was getting from their homerun race(bonds knew he was a better player than them), so he decided to juice while griffey decided to stay clean

    if you just look at it on paper, of course bonds is the best. and not just better than griffey. on paper he could probably be looked at as the greatest player ever. but you can't ignore the elephant in the room. you can't act like that doesn't factor into it. Griffey didn't face federal charges that stemmed from steroid use, he didn't armor himself robotic arm while in the batters box. he didn't hit an abnormal amount of home runs. You can't ignore the obvious. but if anyone chooses to, then yes, he's hands down more accomplished than The Kid

    Bonds was probably headed to the hall before the steroids... This dude was a 30-30 guy... To me he was a better all around player than Griffey.

    Griffey was more popular because he was younger(started young) easy to market and the media loved him. Thats why a lot of folks saying he was the reason they cared about baseball.

    thats what kills me about bonds. had he just stayed the same size, he would have easily got the 500 home runs necessary for the hall.

    This is 1 thing i love about cheap seats

    Nggas will sit there, bold faced, and argue somethign that NO ONE ELSE IRL does!

    Griffey is the similar to the Penny Hardaway/Grant hill of baseball...You dont hear his name mentioned w/out that 'if it werent for injuries' caveat.

    If you want to speculate who WOULD have been better, thats 1 thing, but as things stand now, to even make this thread is pisspoor, and a prime example of talkin sports out your ass aka Cheapseats.

    And those shoes posted are NOT Griffeys smh lol
