The best fantasy years in recent memory

Postby CPHFighter1 » Tue May 17, 2005 9:14 pm

I just recently peeked at Larry Walker's career stats. Check this year out:
1997: 143 R 46 2B 49 HR 130 RBI 33 SB .366 AVG .452OBP .720 SLG 1.172 OPS

This is right about when I started playing fantasy baseball, but I don't remember this. Obviously these are Coors inflated, but in 5x5 leagues, that is unbelievable across the board.

What are some of the best fantasy years in recent memory? In fact, if you want to do all time, that would be interesting too.

Walker's 1997 is probably the best fantasy year for an offensive player.

Pedro's 1999, 2000 are probably the best fantasy year for a pitcher.

C - Piazza 1997
1B - Gehrig 1930 (more recently McGwire 1998)
2B - Hornsby 1922 (Soriano 2002)
SS - A-Rod 1998
3B - Eddie Mathews 1953 (Caminiti 1996)
OF - Sosa 1998
OF - Bonds 2001
OF - Walker 1997

Hard to say for the SP. Dead Ball Era guys put up insane ERAs and W/L totals but a couple of them would completely wipe out an IP limit and not really own in K's. I would rather go with the more modern guys.

Gibson 1968
Gooden 1985
Pedro 1999
Maddux 1995

Gagne 2003

What about the year Rickey Henderson stole 130 bases, I believe he had quite a few homers to go along with the bags also...
