Joe Posnanski's top 100 player rankings has Nolan Ryan at #87

Joe Posnanski is doing a series of blog posts setting out his list of the 100 best players of all time, and at #87 he has Nolan Ryan.

Even if you know Ryan's career and story backwards and forwards, this is still a neat piece to read, setting out what a truly unique pitcher Ryan was, and contemplating whether Ryan could have been the best pitcher that ever lived if he'd wanted to be the best pitcher that ever lived, rather than seeming to want to be the hardest pitcher to hit that ever lived.

Anyway, check it out.
