Get into the great baseball debate with HBO's 'Mr. Stats'. If Babe Ruth played today, could he dominate modern players? Could Ty Cobb adjust to today's game? What if Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson had to pitch to the likes of Ted Williams and Stan Musial? Who was better - Willie Mays or Mickey Mantle? Joe DiMaggio or Stan Musial? And, in the battle for the all-time number 1, can anyone beat out Barry Bonds? These are just a few of the hotly debated questions in "Who's Better, Who's Best in Baseball?" that will fire the blood of baseball fans.Ornery, opinionated, and brimming with baseball intelligence, Elliott Kalb, a.k.a. 'Mr. Stats,' pounds the pavement, talking with Major League Baseball experts, players, and coaches - including Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, and Johnny Bench - to bring you the ultimate ranking of the top 75 players. Reconciling modern statistics with the past, comparing positions, and accounting for the many changes of a century-old game wasn't easy. But they don't call him Mr. Stats for nothing. The absolute authority in armchair athletes' disputes, Kalb interweaves numbers, facts, and anecdotes to flesh out the most provocative question in every baseball fan's mind: Who's the best? You might disagree with his choices, but Kalb loves a good argument. Are you ready to take him on?
