If only the Cubs Hack Wilson from 1930 was playing for the Cubs right now...

AVG: .356
OBP: .454
SLG: .723
OPS+: 178
HR: 56
RBI: 191
R: 146

Hard to believe, but Wilson didn't even win the batting crown that year: be finished 10th in average!

:-?

Who cares? It's not like Larry had anything to do with it.

The guy was a great player during his career in Montreal, Colorado and St. Louis, particularly in that 1997 season.

You guys are forgetting two of the best seasons ever fantasy-wise:

Sosa 98
.308 AVG, 66 HR, 134 R, 158 RBI, 18 SB

Sosa 01
.328 AVG, 64 HR, 146 R, 160 RBI, 0 SB

His advantage in HR and RBI is so big in 98, that he has to be considered even though he 'only' has 18 SB.

If you were in an .OPS league then I think 2001 Bonds, if not then I go with 1998 Sosa.

A few others
2001 Bonds: .328 Avg, 1.379 OPS, 73 HR, 137 RBI, 129 R, 13 SB
1999 Pedro: 23 W, 313 SO, 2.07 ERA, .92 WHIP
1999 Ivan Rodriguez: .332 Avg, .914 OPS. 35 HR, 113 RBI, 116 R, 25 SB
1998 Arod: .310 Avg, .920 OPS, 42 HR, 124 RBI, 123 R, 46 SB
1997 Mike Piazza: .362 Avg, 1.070 OPS, 40 HR, 124, RBI, 104 R, 5 SB

I'm a firm believer and proponent of position scarcity. Sure the OF numbers are pretty, but I'm a fool for Pudge's 1999 season where he his .332/35 HR/113RBI/116runs/25 SB and Piazza's 1997 season where he hit .362/40HR/124RBI/104runs/5 SB. Those numbers are so far and away better than the average catcher numbers that it might very well surpass the difference between Walker in his great year and the average OF.

I also love Bagwell's 1999, .304/42 HR/126 RBI/143runs/30 SB. The 30 SB from a 1B are so much more impressive than 30 SB from an OF.

I'm surprised there is no mention of Rickey's 1982 season where he stole 130 bases. Rickey alone would carry your team to the league lead in SB. Who care's if he only had 9 HR and a .267 average.

.314 24 HR 72 RBI 146 R 99 BB 80 SB


If you are astounded by this season, Reyes is not that far off from acheiving those numbers this year. He's on pace to hit .298 with 20 HR, 85 RBI, 136 runs and 67 SB (throw in 20 triples and 30+doubles too). Once you add in Reyes' SS position v. Henderson's OF position, Reyes' season may be more impressive, and probably is.

And, what about Eric Davis. Jeez, that guy might have been the most talented and highest ceiling ballplayer to ever, EVER, step foot on the diamond. The guy couldn't stay healthy though. He never played more than 135 games. If he could get to even 155 games, here's what some of his season would have looked like.

1986: 114 runs, 32 HR, 83 RBI, 94 SB, .277 AVG.
1987: 144 runs, 44 HR, 120 RBI, 60 SB, .293 (He had 129 games that year. There is little doubt that if he put up the above line it would be the greatest in fantasy history).

He had some other good seasons, but those were ridiculous.
