Of all time?

Ruth would get shut out by today's aces.

Point being is even today Babe is mentioned in the discussion of the best , something that simply won't be the case for JS

Of course. Not only are you "judged against your peers" but you also play against your peers , all during the same time frame. I'm pretty damn sure that if the pitchers of Ruth's time threw the same ball they use today and pitched at the same speeds the batters would have adjusted their swing to meet the challenge. Ruth may have hit even more home runs...
