At Dugout Central, there is an interesting article on Stan Musial and how he might be "The Greatest Living Ballplayer" today.
I think the most impressive thing about Musial is his run of MVP voting. From 1943 to 1957 (14 seasons) he finished in the top 10 in voting all but one year. From 1943 to 1952 (9 seasons) he finished in the top 5 in voting all but one year.
To add to that, he currently has the all-time ranks of:
AVG - 32nd overall (.331)
OBP - 23rd overall (.417)
SLG - 22nd overall (.559)
OPS - 15th overall (.976)
Games, AB, PA, R, H, TB, RBI, and 2B are all top 10 all-time.
For those of you who are bigger stat geeks than I am - he has the 3rd most career runs created, 6th most career adjusted batting runs, 5th most career batting wins, 15th best career adjusted OPS+, 10th best offensive win %, and many more ridiculous #s.
Your thoughts, ideas, etc. about this topic?
