I am curious how you handle League Quality in PCA. More broadly, can you give any advice on how one should handle LQ when comparing recent stars to those from the early part of the 20'th century? I am asking, because I am beginning to think that I have been overrating the early stars from baseball. For example, I broke down my personal top 20 by year of debut into three segments pre 1933, 1933-1965, 1966-1999. This is what I came up with:
8 players (Wagner, Cobb, Ruth, Speaker, Hornsby, Collins, Gehrig, Ott)
8 players (Williams, Musial, Mantle, Morgan, F. Robinson, Mathews, Mays, Aaron)
4 players (Bonds, Henderson, Schmidt, Brett)
With the exception of George Brett and, maybe, Mathews, I don't think I have an unusual top 20. However, logic tells me that more top players should come from recent years. I am just hoping for some advice from an expert. Thank you for your time.

"I never saw anyone like Ty Cobb. No one even close to him. He was the greatest all time ballplayer. That guy was superhuman, amazing."
