Rezension: When the master speaks, the prudent listen. Arguably the greatest hitter since Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, never one to couch opinions, creates a system for ranking the best hitters of all time in this gregarious volume that is ripe with personal anecdote, observation, and bias. Not only is the list itself enticing and convincingly argued--Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, and Joe DiMaggio form the heart of his order--so are most of the shots he takes at some pretty big names. Given Williams's position on defense, a few of his convictions may seem out of left field, but if the gospel according to Ted deems Carl Yastrzemski, George Brett, Pete Rose, and Reggie Jackson underachievers, so be it. And his analyses of current artists with a bat such as Frank Thomas, Ken Griffey Jr., Tony Gwynn, and Mike Piazza are as solid as line drives up the middle.
