I am paraphrasing something I heard today on the radio but it was something like this.
When asked once who the better ballplayer was between DiMaggio and Musial, Bill James responded " Its ridiculous anyone would even think DiMaggio is even in the same league as Musial".
The question was spawned by DiMAggio's insistence that anytime he was introduced at a function it was as "The Greatest Living Ballplayer".
Another good one -
"No man has ever been a perfect ballplayer. Stan Musial
, however, is the closest to being perfect in the game today....He plays as hard when his club is away out in front of a game as he does when they're just a run or two behind."—Ty Cobb, Life Magazine,
