what's the best single-season fantasy stat line?

Postby Sensei » Thu Apr 13, 2006 5:42 am

If you could take the 5x5 stat line from any player from any single season in history* and have it added to your team, what player and which of his seasons would you use? Would you use Ryan's 380k season? Henderson's 130 steal? Gehrig's .370-47-175 season? William's .406? Someone's high average 40-40 or 50-30/etc season? Hall of Famers, current stars....anyone you like...

*Within reason, meaning no roided .328-73-137-129-13 seasons, or some where pitchers threw 350 innings and had 30 wins with 350+ K's...just use common sense, how's a 250 inning max sound?

I'd go with a pitching year, and narrowly defeating Maddux's 1994 line and Pedro's 2000 line of 18-1.74-.74-284 in my head was...

Randy Johnson's 2001 season of 21-2.49-1.00-372 (in barely under the cap, 249 2/3 IP). Man would I win strikeouts...

Bonds in '01 for me, .328, 129Rs, 73HRs, 137RBIs, 13SBs. You caould take his 40/40 in '96 either.

Larry Walker in '97 put up .366, 143 Rs, 49HRs, 130RBIs, 33SBs.

As far as pitching is going, I would take Pedro from '99, 23Ws, 313Ks, 2.07ERA, .92WHIP.

Either 1986 or 1987 for Eric Davis depending on scarcity of SB in the timeframe.
1986: 27 HR, 80 SB, 97 R with 71 RBI and .277
1987: 37 HR, 50 SB, 120 R, 100 RBI and .293

For pitching, its Maddux in 1994 or 1995.
1995: 19-2, .811 whip, 1.63 era, with 181 K. Only waked 23 guys that year in over 200 IP.

Off the top of my head I can't remember the year, but there was (at least) one season where Ruth out-homered every other TEAM. I'll take that.

This has got to be one of the greatest years ever and it's not even close.

Not "one of the greatest", THE greatest season ever in all of sports. To outhomer 14 of the 15 entire pro baseball teams is unfathomable.

There is a website that i found a while back that ranked the top ten overall fantasy season. Ruth 1921 was number one. Ill go look for the address.
