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

i think the origonal question was more asking "who's stat line would you like to have this year" not "who would you liked to have had in the year they played"

i.e. Ruths 1921 stat line blew away the competition for 1921, but it may not be the most helpful to your team today.

that Larry Walker line is pretty sick, i'd probably take that, although Ricky's 130SB season you'd lock up SB and could concentrate on power from everyone else

That's an interesting take on it...Couldn't take Henderson's 1982 because he only hit .267 and had 51 rbi, 10 HR.


I'd probably take Charley Radbourn's 1884 or maybe Hugh Duffy's 1894:

160 R
18 HR
145 RBI
48 SB
.440 (237 hits)

Or Gehrig's 1931

163 R
46 HR
184 RBI
17 SB
.341 (211 hits)

In the end the season which might take them all is Jimmie Foxx's 1932, provided he get the catcher eligibility.

151 R
58 HR
169 RBI
3 SB
.364 (213 hits)

from your catcher would be amazing.

well then, in that case pedro's sub 1.00 whip year was out of hand. Didn't he have 300ks?

BTW, I have read the information with steals being more valuable than hr's, and I think there is a lot of merit to it.

Although, the simple fact remains that a guy who contributes to three categories is be definition more important than a guy who is hollow and only contributes one. Although, depending on steal totals, obvisouly an overwhelming amount of one category can net more points than good production in three.

Point being, I don't think you can summarily say one way or the other, since it depends on a specific player. But all else being equal, I am going to try and have 3/5 of my score be good, rather than 1 or 2 at the most like the sb guy gets.

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


I agree with Walker's line, but about Bonds, read my first post again....

346 Innings Pitched :-D

Obviously if you put Johnson's season or the above-mentioned Radbourn's season in a modern one, you kick butt...but it isn't very realistic considering a modern pitcher doesn't go more then 240-260 IP per season. Maybe my 250IP was a bit low, but 346 and 678.7.....hardly fair to compare their numbers to the great Randy, Pedro, and Maddux seasons that were mentioned.

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.


Its not that unfathomable. Put Pujols in a league where all the other teams are filled with Juan Pierre style hitters, guys who go to the plate with absolutely no intention of hitting a HR.
