I think Ruth in 1921 was the best 5x5 season ever

177 Runs 59 HR 171 RBI .378 AVG and 17 SB

Last March there was a thread on making the Best All-Time Fantasy Team
Nevermind some of the highlighted names, those are just the names I used to search for the thread.
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

IMO, these are the best 5 years in the last 35 years of pitching.

Guidry in 1978
25-3, 1.74 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 9 shutouts, 248 strikeouts

Pedro in 1999
23-4, 2.07 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 313 Strikeouts

Gooden in 1985
24-4, 1.53 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 268 strikeouts

Randy in 2001
21-6, 2.49 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 372 Strikeouts in 249.7 IP

Carlton in 1972
27-10, 1.97 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 346.1 IP, 310 Ks

Gator was God in 1978 with that Louisiana Lightning. He may not belong in the HOF, but that season should have its own plaque.

the 1921 Babe Ruth had 171 RBI, 170 RUNS thats more then any slap hitter gets today.... not to mention 378 average 59 homers and throw in 17 stolen bases...

hornsby )the best right handed hitter of all time but that is another topic) the year he hit 400 and 40 homers (the only player ever to do it, i think he did it in 1922) and he had 152 rbi's too for a second baseman! or the year he hit 424 and 20 something homers

at first Helton's 2000 year, Giambi's 2000 year or 2001 year...

Big Hurts 1994 year is insane, and any of Gehrigs years with all the RBI's hitting behind Ruth and Joe D.

Gehrigs 1927 year was ridiculious 370 soemthing, 47 homers, and 175 RBI's.

Hack Wilson's 1931 year where he hit 191 RBI's

thats some off the top of my head
how did colon win the cy young??

the world is comming to an end...woody paige has a Hall of Fame vote

Brady Anderson 1996 - .297 AVG, 117 R, 50 HR, 110 RBI, 21 SB.

While not anywhere near as impressive as some of those others, he was most likely a 10th round pick or later that year so I'm talking value.
