We talked about the National League teams best player ever in the franchise in Ep. 20.  Since franchises can move around there are questions about teams like the A's (Philly, KC, and Oakland) and the 'new' Washington Senators (1961-71) who moved to Texas and the 'old' Washington Senators who moved to Minnesota in 1961 to become the Twins. Great players will always be great players in their era but it is challenging to compare players from the early 20th century to those in today's game since the game is played so differently.
