    Ha, yea Alexnder looked old even as a rookie before his compounding physical ailments.

    So take from that what you want.

    I think I'll stand by the view that the FL had a negligible to slight bonus for Pete.
    Wouldn't this be partly due to an unofficial black balling? It's not like I'm saying some all-timer got left out. Just saying it seems like the black balling is a real possibility.
    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”
