It would be interesting to see how you determined the numbers. I can't think of any way that Scott's 1986 season would beat out Pedro's 1999 campaign.

Well, first, I'll say that they were very close. I think the reason for Scott edging Pedro is that Scott pitched 62 more innings with similar ratios. My formula awards points for ratios based on the ratios themselves quantified by the number of innings pitched.

Of course, small differences in the baseline numbers will result in a larger difference once the formula is calculated. I will readily admit that I am far too lazy to adjust for era, as well. I also know for a fact that I go about calculating player values somewhat differently than most people -- slightly kinkier, if you will. It is quite possible that it may be inherently flawed, as such.

You have players from 86' wow! I wasn't playing fantasy baseball then. I started in the mid 90's so that's why I have the players over there.

In 1986, I was two years old. :-D These aren't necessarily players I had, just players that I found as having the most outstanding seasons. In fact, I don't think I owned any of these players, as I am fairly green when it comes to fantasy, relatively speaking.

Eric Davis: 1986--27hr 71rbi 80sb
1987 37 100 50

Are these not the 2 best seasons for any fantasy player?

Eric Davis' GPs those 2 years:
132
129.
Career high: 135.

Not what I need to stay sane during the fantasy season.

Not really, they would be lucky to break the top ten. There are several seasons that are very similar except they were able to bat at a higher average, drive in more runs, and score more runs. Great seasons though.
