    There are lots of “ifs” when it comes to Bo Jackson, obviously because injuries completely ended his sports career at 28.
    What we know for sure though is he had ridiculous natural talent for baseball. What we also know is that he was one of the best running backs in the NFL during his brief career. Imagine how much of his time, effort and focus, not to mention the grueling physical demand, that playing in the NFL took.
    Imagine if he had none of that to deal with and just played baseball. The fact that he was the a physically gifted freak who could hit major league pitching alone makes him one in a million. Imagine if he focused 100% of his time and effort towards becoming a better hitter. A better outfielder. A better base stealer. Imagine if he had a 15 year career with no major injuries. You’re talking about Ricky Henderson with 40 HR a year potential. He could have been the first guy to go 50/50. It’s not even a stretch. He could have been a HOFer.
    Again, tons of “ifs” but we know he had the talent.

    Hugh, you're basically proving my point.

    It's fun to dream on the potential. Im seriously not trying to ruin the fun of it, I just don't completely buy that if he shifted his focus, he'd LIKELY be an all time great. Is it possible? For sure, but he wasn't an all time great (strictly speaking with baseball) and we really don't know how much all of the stuff you mentioned factored into his ability to hit a baseball. Mickey Mantle without the debilitating knee injuries, Doc Gooden without the drugs, Bonds without the PEDs, Shaq without the cheeseburgers. It's so rare that we have guys like Lebron James, Gretzky, Trout, MJ who just embody greatness with no ifs ands or buts. Maybe I'm just a MASSIVE trout fanboy (I really am lol), but I feel like we take away from his greatness by comparing him to anyone who isn't already on baseballs Mount Rushmore.

    Either way, I'm not trying to debate it really, just sharing my opinion. The Bo Jackson story is one of the best and most compelling stories in all of sports and I don't want to take away from that either.

    Oh, ok.
    Mike Trout is the best baseball player alive and maybe the greatest of all time. No argument.
