    What the heck is going on Yankillaz?! You will take the year of a player who hasn't done anything yet over the great Toronto legendary backstop Ernie Whitt? You have lost your marbles, methinks.

    Kidding, though I was a huge Whitt fan back in his heyday.

    My team's the Yankees, so I'll take them:

    Babe Ruth's best season (1921) came when he was playing LF for the Yankees, therefore he is there.

    C-Yogi Berra 1950
    1B-Lou Gehrig 1927
    2B-Alfonso Soriano 2002 (slightly over Joe Gordans MVP year)
    SS-Derek Jeter 1999
    3B-Alex Rodriguez 2005
    LF-Babe Ruth 1921 (slightly over Babe Ruth 1920)
    CF-Mickey Mantle 1956 (slightly over Joe Dimaggio's 1937)
    RF-Roger Marris 1961
    DH-Jason Giambi 2005
    I've done this before.

    I put DiMag in CF and Mantle at DH, but since Mantle didn't play DH, I guess that's a disservice to him. And there's no WAY that Giambi's 2005 was even close to as good as his 2002, when he DH'd in roughly the same proportion as in 2005.

    I go with Gordon over Soriano, though I could see reasonable people disagreeing on that.

    Only other difference: Berra was great, but, depending on who you want to believe about his defense (some say he was above average, some say atrocious), Dickey's 1936 was probably better than any Berra year.

    I know he only actually DHed like 15% of the time that or so in those days but...
    A fine choice.....his years wer actually the only 2 better than Henderson's 1990 left for the A's. I'd say leave Henderson in LF, Simmons in CF, and Giambi as the DH.

    Hunter's best season was tied for 30th! And, it was 1972 according to RSAA, which accounts for performance vs. the league an dstands for Runs Saved Against Average. The definition from the Encyclopedia:
    RSAA--Runs saved against average. It's the amount of runs that a pitcher saved vs. what an average pitcher would have allowed. It's the same stat as Total Baseball's Pitching Runs, except (1) we both have different ways of park adjustments and (2) they added a procedure to take into account the amount of decisions (W+L) the pitcher had, while RSAA doesn't have that. Just like RCAA, the stat can produce a negative result

    If I had went strictly with the 5 best seasons it would have been Grove, Grove, Grove, Grove and Blue!!!!

    Heck, I think even Joey Amalfitano (1964) had a much better year than Hornsby did in 1990!!

    SP-Shantz 1952
    SP-Zito 2002
    RP-Eckersley 1990
    RP-Fingers 1973

    How's that? The most surprising to me, being a non A's guy was that Tejada didn't fare better. I used Lee Sinis' Saber Encyclopedia and his great RCAA, RCAP and RSAA stats for most of the work.
    Nice dude, thanks. How bout that all lefty rotation
