One of the toughest things to when it comes to baseball history is comparing players across different eras, as the game simply wasn't the same back in the 1900s as it is today.
While advanced statistics like WAR, ERA+ and OPS+ have helped to better put a player's accomplishment into context, it remains a difficult exercise comparing players across generations.
So for a change of pace, I've decided to take a look at the greatest players in the game on a decade-by-decade basis and name my top 10 players from each decade.
For each decade, who the top two or three players were is pretty universally accepted, but when it came down to those last couple spots in the top 10, it was incredibly difficult to narrow things down.
That being said, I've tried my best, so here are who I feel are the top 10 players of each decade from the 1900s to the 2000s. I look forward to what should be a lively and no doubt heated debate, so leave your thoughts in the comments section below, and I'll defend my selections to the death.
