San Francisco - Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval

 

Um... Joe Montana? Bill Walsh? Willie Mays? No offense to Gerald and Pablo... especially Pablo... but they're Johnny Come Latelies in SF.

I guess you don't live here. He's worshipped as the goat here.

Doesn't change that he never played for San Diego, ever. Isn't even from San Diego. Babe Ruth is known by all of North America if not the world, doesn't mean he will be on every cities Mount Rushmore.

Huh? I live in SD, never heard anyone mention Aaron... never mind lost him as one of San Diego's greats.

Wouldn't put Harper there yet. He's still young. He could realistically leave after his contract is up in 2018 and end up playing for another team for a longer time than he was in Washington.

 

Ryan Zimmerman should probably be mentioned.

For Washington, what about Walter Johnson? He was the Senators' only long-term star (and one of the greatest players ever, on top of that). I know he played a really long time ago, but I still think he's easily one of the four best athletes in DC sports history, no doubt.

 

Walter Johnson definitely belongs . . . and is remembered well enough that there is a high school named after him in Bethesda and a summer collegiate team named the Bethesda Big Train.

 

Unseld, Hayes, Jurgensen and Sammy Baugh probably all remain ahead of Bryce Harper at the moment.  Obviously, this could change over the next 5-10 years if he stays with the Nationals.

 

Ryan Zimmerman -- What?!?!?!?!?!

 

I think my selections would be Walter Johnson, Sammy Baugh, Wes Unseld, Joe Gibbs and Alex Ovechkin.
