Mantle is rated more close to my way of thinking than what many others have posted here but I was suprised to see Mel Ott rated so high. And it's impossible for me, personally, not to take steroid/hgh use into account when having this discussion so Bonds at number two might be right on paper but not in my reality.
I think the rankings there pretty much reflect what most people have been saying in the thread. Based on their numbers in terms of production per year Mantle is behind only Ruth, Bonds, Williams, and Gehrig. The other players ahead of him get there based on longer careers. It sort of depends on what you value more.
