oh yes 2001 the year of the good rc"s and pickups. You had oswalt, berkamn, ichrio, pujols breakout from no where. These types of seasons come about like once every decade.

It was an incredible season indeed! I can't help but think steroids was in the air then - I just calculated the average number of HRs for the top 25 for 2001 and 2004:

2001: 43.56 (42 if you take away Bonds, 40.8 minus Sosa and Bonds)
2004: 38.56 (38.16 minus Bonds)

Anyway, we all seemed to enjoy the statistical candy from 2001, here's a few more that I didn't include earlier (these were from my Yahoo printout for my draft in 2002)...

1B
Helton: 132-49-146-7-.336
Giambi: 109-38-120-2-.342
Thome: 101-49-124-0-.291
Bagwell: 126-39-130-11-.288
Palmeiro: 98-47-123-1-.273
Delgado: 102-39-102-3-.279
Sexson: 94-45-125-2-.271

2B
Alomar: 113-20-100-30-.336
Boone: 118-37-141-5-.331
Kent: 84-22-106-7-.298
SORIANO: 77-18-73-43-.268 (pre-breakout!)

3B
Chipper: 118-38-102-9-.330
Nevin: 97-41-126-4-.306

C
Piazza: 81-36-94-0-.300

SS
A-Rod: 133-52-135-18-.318
Jeter: 110-21-74-27-.311 (what people drafting him in round 2 hope from him)
Aurilia 8-o : 114-37-97-1-.324 (prime candidate for steroids-abuse)

SP
R. Johnson: 21W, 372K, 2.49ERA, 1.01WHIP
Schilling: 22-293-3.15-1.07
Pedro: 7-163-2.39-0.93 (18 games played)
Moose: 17-214-3.15-1.07
Oswalt.

Yahoo final rankings
1. R. Johnson
2. Bonds
3. Sosa
4. Schilling
5. A-Rod
6. Helton
7. Ichiro 8-o
8. Luis Gonzalez (what happened to him in the offseason? 57!)
9. S. Green
10. Vlad

How does Bonds get better ranking? Sosa beat him handily in runs and RBIs, and they had similar averages, but Sosa helps you more because he had more ABs. Bonds had 9 more HR but I dont think that makes up for the other categories.
