Ultimate first baseman rankings: Where does Albert Pujols rank among the all-time greats?

Welcome back to our ongoing series aimed at determining the best of the best at each position in Major League Baseball.

Our goal here is two-fold. First, we determine each current franchise’s best ever player at a position. Then we rank those players 1-30 to determine how they stack up in MLB history. 

The only caveat being that the selected player must come from the current incarnation of each franchise in order to be ranked. But don’t worry, we’ll throw in bonus players when warranted as well. To make things more interesting, we also require that no player represents multiple franchises or multiple positions.

We’ve already taken a close look at starting pitchers and catchers. Today, we focus on first base.

So, what do we make of this list?
