best fantasy season ever (roto, 1880s style)

Postby Arlo » Sat Dec 06, 2003 1:09 pm

The recent thread asking about the best fantasy season ever got me thinking...

How about Monte Ward's 1882 campaign? 19 wins, a 2.59 era, and best of all ... 1 save. Ok, not quite Gagne's mark, but considering that his was the only save in the NL that year ... roto dynamite! :-D

8-o

I was unaware of that statistic. 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I'll take Charlie Radbourn's 59 Wins, 441 Ks, 1.38 ERA, and 1 Save back in 1884. He also pitched 678.7 innings that year! What a workhorse!

OMG 8-o 8-o 678 innings! 8-o 8-o

Did that ruin the rest of his career? Or did he somehow keep that up?

Yup, Old Hoss Radbourn. He also posed for his team picture by giving the camera the finger. :D
