      I still can't believe he didn't win the MVP that year. Didn't voters see enough of Gallaraga, Bichette and Castilla to know better than to take Rockies' offensive numbers seriously.

      Al Rosen's '53 season was quite good as well.

        I would think Rickey Henderson's 1990 season was better than 85 or 83. Ok Henderson didm't have the games minimum in 1990.

          I'm amazed not to see Hornsby's '24 season.... or even Brett's '80 year.

              Both of em are disqualified because of year or games minimum.

                Very intertesting OP

                However, 1957 Ted Williams plays just 132 games. You said 145. Even if we account for the 154 game seaon, he would have to play 137.8 games to equal the 89.5 % that you set with your 145/162 games. So if 80 Brett is out, so must 57 Ted be.

                Also, I love 54 Mays, but he is listed twice.

                Nonetheless, I like your OP.

                  Willie Mays 54 is listed twice (11 and 22).

                    Barry Bonds does not make the minimum games criteria in

                    1992 (140)
                    2002 (143)
                    2003 (130)


                    Also how is 1992 Bonds better than his 1993 season?

                        1924 is 23 years before 1947.

                          In 1955 Campanella plays just 123 games. He needs 138 in a 154 game serason.

                            Fitting this is the 1st reply - this was my 1st reaction to this list. Piazza's 1997 has to be there.

                            I would also put:
                            • Larry Walker 1997. Coors or no Coors, he slugged over .700, stole 30+ bases, and played Gold-Glove defense.
                            • Mark McGwire 1998.
                            • Gary Sheffield 1996
                            • Sammy Sosa 2001
                            • Albert Belle 1996
                            • Adrian Beltre 2004
                            • Scott Rolen 2004

                              Since this is a Top 40, is Casey Kasem announcing the winners?
                              1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)
