I wanted to take a second to make a thread about Nap Lajoie and discuss his career in baseball.

This guy, like Cobb, Wagner and Hornsby, all intrigued me and I try to read as much as I can about him.

Anybody have any thoughts on him or his career?

It's hard for me to pinpoint where to rank him. He put up a lot of really good numbers while playing an important position. However, recently I've heard that his position might not have been as important back then, due to their style of play. I'm still trying to sort everything out.

He also hit for a little while where foul balls didn't count as strikes. It's hard for me to hold that against him though. He still hit .422 one season no matter what.
