Best Ever?

Postby Art Vandelay » Thu Aug 23, 2007 1:13 pm

A new twist on an old debate: compiling their career best single season statistics for each individual category, whose numbers look better?

Ruth: .393, 177 R, 45 2B, 16 3B, 60 HR, 171 RBI, 17 SB, 150 BB, .545 OBP, .849 SLG
Mays: .347, 130 R, 43 2B, 20 3B, 52 HR, 141 RBI, 40 SB, 112 BB, .425 OBP, .667 SLG
Williams: .406, 150 R, 44 2B, 14 3B, 43 HR, 159 RBI, 4 SB, 162 BB, .553 OBP, .735 SLG
Bonds: .370, 129 R, 44 2B, 9 3B, 73 HR, 137 RBI, 52 SB, 232 BB, .609 OBP, .863 SLG

For my money, I'll take Bonds slightly over Ruth with Williams 3rd and Mays 4th. Who are some other players with ridiculously good numbers when you look at them like this?

Ricky Henderson .327, 146 Runs, 33 2B, 7 3B, 28 HR, 61 RBI, 130 SB, 126 BB, .469 OBP, .577 SLG

I think a lot of people could look REALLY good if you do it that way.

Case in Point....

.328, 146 R, 38 2B, 10 3B, 66 HR, 160 RBI, 36 SB, 116 BB, .440 OBP, .737 SLG from Sammy Sosa
.379, 143 R, 46 2B, 7 3B, 49 HR, 130 RBI, 33 SB, 98 BB, .458 OBP, .720 SLG from Larry Walker
.336, 128 R, 47 2B, 9 3B, 57 HR, 142 RBI, 20 SB, 100 BB, .429 OBP, .688 SLG from Luis Gonzalez
.297, 117 R, 39 2B, 10 3B, 50 HR, 110 RBI, 53 SB, 98 BB, .404 OBP, .637 SLG from Brady Anderson

I'm one of those guys who takes the era they played in into account so that being said I have to go with Ruth. As per baseball-almanac.com:

1927 was the season where a player hit more home runs than any other team in the league. That player was Babe Ruth, who finished with sixty, and the nearest team was the Washington Senators who finished with fifty-six long balls.


When one guy hits more HRs than any other team in all of baseball, that's just sick.
Finally The Rock has come back....to New York City!!
