  1. Sorry bro, Hank Greenberg was STILL waaaay better than Mize.

  2. Actually they were quite comparable seeing as how they finished their careers with the same OPS+, and Mize maintained it over an additional 1,200 plate appearances.

    Because of the war, Hammerin' Hank played just three full seasons during the '40s so it doesn't make sense to include him here.
