The Easiest Question in Baseball History Might Have a New Answer

So there’s a game baseball fans like to play (and by “fans” we also include anybody, anywhere, who has ever written any words, at any time, about the sport). The game is to rank the best player who ever lived at every position…

———

The best first baseman of all time is Gehrig. Always has been.

But here’s a thought: What if… he’s not?

What if the easiest question in the history of baseball is about to get a different answer?

What if Albert Pujols – not Lou Gehrig – is the best first baseman to ever man the bag?

Are Baseball’s MVP Voters Racist?

Black players don’t claim MVPs in the American League. Hispanic players are ignored by National League voters. Has an ugly bias influenced the MVP vote?
