Anyone? I'd like to finish this
It's been so long since I've looked at these posts I can't remember who's been nominated. RF, 1970s- I know that Aaron had 1 or 2 big seasons in 71 or 72. Problem is, that's also about the time he started playing a lot of first base. Anyhow, I'll guess Hank Aaron 1971or 1972.
Aaron is incorrect
Let's see...we still need SS and RF for the 70's, and the 2B for the 90's tied with Sandberg.
Based on the clue you gave about the 70's SS I'm pretty sure it's Toby Harrah. I don't know which years of his were the best, so I'll just guess 'em all:
Toby Harrah 1970
Toby Harrah 1971
Toby Harrah 1972
Toby Harrah 1973
Toby Harrah 1974
Toby Harrah 1975
Toby Harrah 1976
Toby Harrah 1977
Toby Harrah 1978
Toby Harrah 1979
Okay, it's not Aaron- I didn't really think it was, but.... Let's see- Dave Parker was probably the best player in the NL in 77 and 78. As I recall, he hit for more power in 78. So, I'll try
Dave Parker- 1978.
It is none other than Toby Harrah 1975.
Dave Parker 1978 is incorrect. The correct answer had one more OPS+ point, Ron.
I'm strugglin' here. Te only other guys I can think of are Murcer, Reggie Smith, and Ken Singleton. But I think all of Murcer's best seasons were as a CFer. Singleton had a number of excellent seasons in the mid-late 70s, and so did Smith with the Dodgers. Multiple guesses:
Ken Singleton 75
Ken Singleton 76
Ken Singleton 77
Reggie Smith 77
Reggie Smith 78
If it's not one of them, I don't know who it could be.
For the 1990s second baseman tied with Sandberg, could it be any of the following?
Craig Biggio 1994
Craig Biggio 1995
Craig Biggio 1996
Craig Biggio 1997
Craig Biggio 1998
I'd better add 1991 just in case. I had a baseball encyclopedia from either '92 or '93 though and I think he hit .341 in that last year in that book.

It is Reggie Smith 1977 and Julio Franco 1991. You guys got it.
