If we went purely by best ten year stretches, Pujols would be up there.

I'm not sure you can have Pete Rose in there when talking all around hitter. Dude hit like 8 Hrs a year. Ty Cobb gets a break cuz of his era, and dude hit .367 for his career. Also how is Hank Aaron not on that list or Willie Mays?

I’m not sure what the OP is asking/stating? A mix of power plus average I guess?

B/c yes. Both should be top five.

And since we are adding Steroid Era...

Ruth
Bonds
Aaron
Mays
Williams

My hot take: 20 years from now, Acuna is in the top 5. He absolutely rakes.

Jackson still holds the Indians and White Sox franchise records for both triples in a season and career batting average.

As a rookie Jackson hit .408 and had an OBP .468.

His second year he batted .395.

His 3rd year he led the league with 197 hits and a .551 slugging %.

He batted .351, .375 and .382 the following years before he was banned...despite hitting .307 in the World Series.

I kind of agree. Him and Boggs. Both could have hit more bombs, but chose to hit for average. I’ve read articles about both saying watching them in BP they would hit missiles.

Bonds is the best hitter of all time. Ichiro is easily the most underrated. He was so, so skilled and he made hitting into an art form.

lol why the hell do people always mention Griffey? He's a HOF but even just the last 30 years there have been 10 better hitters:

Bonds
Manny
Pujols
Thomas
Trout
Cabrera
A-Rod
Mcgwire
Helton
Walker
