Ty Cobb and Cy Young seem like two other obvious choices.

Are we limiting this to post-1900 or anything goes?

Well it can be from any era, just major leagues though. However, players pre-1900 will not get very high spots.

how is it stupid???
Yea, I know Josh Gibson and Oscar Charleston and Cool Papa Bell are great but since the Negro Leagues did a horrible job at recording games and stats there is no way I could put them in a correct order. If I knew more about the players then I would put them in the list no problem.
