Thinking about first basemen in history

So I was thinking about something last night, and it occurred to me that it would be an interesting topic for discussion here to see what folks at LSB think...

I think almost everyone who knows baseball would agree that Lou Gehrig was the greatest first baseman of all time.  And I think almost every who knows baseball would agree that Jimmie Foxx was the second-greatest first baseman of all time.

But who is the third best first baseman of all time?

There's a ton of candidates, it seems, and no obvious answer.

Let's hear your thoughts...
