60. Jose Canseco, OF, 1988 Oakland Athletics
Stats: .307 AVG, 42 HR, 124 RBI, 40 SB, 120 R, 610 AB
The combination of power and speed is a rarity in a baseball player, and there might not be a better asset in fantasy baseball than a 40/40 man. Canseco would become the club's charter member in 1988, leading the majors in homers and RBI while finishing 12th in stolen bases. He earned American League Most Valuable Player honors, but at least his fantasy owners didn't have to stomach his 1-for-19 World Series performance.

Was this list made pre-book or post-book. Either way, I'm not sure he deserves to be on this list. I didn't quote McGuire or Sammy, but they haven't written books yet on how they used steroids.

Fun list to read!! Really shows off how amazing Ruth and Gehrig were.. How great their numbers were in an era when no one was putting up stats remotely similar.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I wonder if Hornsby's HR record at 2B will go this year with Soriano and Roberts dinging away. Kinda hope not though cos it's a nice old record and I don't own Soriano or Roberts :-)

48. Mickey Mantle, OF, 1956 New York Yankees
Stats: .353 AVG, 52 HR, 130 RBI, 10 SB, 132 R, 533 AB
The Mick won his only Triple Crown in 1956, and even led the major leagues in batting average, homers, RBI and runs scored as he earned AL MVP honors. The fact that Mantle made the top 100 in just one season shouldn't detract from his career accomplishments; he was an excellent hitter but was more of a consistently solid performer than one with just one or two huge years. This was his finest year, and the only one in his career in which he topped a .300 average, 50 homers, 100 RBI and 15 steals in the same season.
