I'm sorry, but I can't agree with anyone who doesn't put Walker in their outfield:
Walker's '97 season , quite possibly the greatest fantasy 5x5 season of all time

143 runs, 49 homeruns, 130 rbi, 33 sbs, .366 avg

Coors added or not, those numbers certainly carried a team or two to the title

Yeah, true. Definitely worthy. I'd change my OF. Good catch. ;-D

Going by the best single seasons from 1985 to the present:

1B Todd Helton (2000)
2B Alfonso Soriano (2002)
3B Chipper Jones (1999)
SS Alex Rodriguez (1998)
C Ivan Rodriguez (1999)
OF Larry Walker (1997)
OF Rickey Henderson (1985)
OF Ellis Burks (1996)

SP Dwight Gooden (1985)
SP Randy Johnson (2002)
SP Mike Scott (1986)
RP Eric Gagne (2003)
RP John Wetteland (1993)

Actually, most of the top hitting seasons in this particular interval were turned in by outfielders. It's a shame there isn't more room for them.

Canseco, 1988. We've been obsessed with the idea of 40/40 ever since. Expand the outfield to 5 slots, so we can include Gonzo 01 as well.
keeper wise, Junior from 96-2000 was money in the bank.

Solid List. One change that I could see (yes, I'm a homer, but I believe this has merit) would be taking Piazza's 97 over Pudge's 99. Piazza hit .362 40hrs 124rbis 5sb's. Obviously you chose Pudge because of the 20 extra swipes, which could be the right choice...I still like Piazza's 97, though.

To be honest, I was a bit surprised at Pudge coming up with the top season. Not something I expected, but that's the way the numbers fell for me.
