 Rob Neyer
The problem for Klein is that once you get past those five best seasons -- and by the way, for all five players those five seasons were consecutive -- Callison and Cravath have big edges.
Really, the case for Callison is so compelling that I'm surprised, now, to find just how compelling it is. He contributed in two other seasons, giving him an entire decade as a worthwhile player for the Phillies.
But Johnny Callison's the greatest right fielder in Phillies history.

 The Williams-Santo Cubs: 1970-1973 -- The Hardball Times
Callison, while for many years an outstanding defensive outfielder, was by this point in his career no longer capable of handling center; Callison in right field was good for the Cubs, but he didn’t address their primary problem.
Callison’s presence would prompt the Cubs to shift 33-year-old Jim Hickman, their second-half-1969 power-hitting surprise, to center field.
The Cubs were second in the league in runs scored, and while their raw numbers should be understood in the context of an excellent hitters’ park in an unusually high-scoring season, there’s no reason to doubt that this was a formidable offense.
