If one of these players was on your team, more than likely you won that year. But its time to find out who is the best of the best! Your vote counts!

I have to go with Walker. I know he didn't go 40/40 like Canseco but the 7 SB are more than made up for with a .366 AVG. 8-o :-°

My Vote = 1990 Rickey Henderson. His .325 AVG is easily amongst the league leaders that year, he blasts 28 home runs (which would be about equal to at least 35 in 2007) to give you a nice boost in home runs, and while his 61 RBI arn't anything to faint over, his 119 runs and 65 stolen bases are. The 90 version is almost twice as good as the 2006 Jose Reyes one IMO. Larry Walker 1997 & Sammy Sosa 2001 were very close as well.

You have to take these numbers in contaxt of era. 1980s favored pitchers. 1990s-2000s favor hitters.

Pedro in 2000 was the Fantasy MVP. 1.74 ERA. Second best? 2.58 by Kevin Brown who only won 13 games. It is also that year that made him the consenus number 1 the following year.

Larry Walker hands down. That's one of the best seasons ever. A lot of people think he's borderline hall of fame but that season should get him in (along with his career stats). It will be hard to top that season ever again.

That was 2000. The same year Nomar hit .372 from Shortstop.

That same year Alou hit .355, Guerrero hit .345, Erstad hit .355, Ramirez hit .351, and Delgado hit .344. Batting average and offense in general was easy to come by. That is why Pedro was so valuable. There were tons of guys putting up huge power and batting average numbers, but few good pitchers (the second best era in the AL was 3.70!).
