    Was there any method you used to make this list, or just kind of random? Mauer seems out of place at number 7, as I could name at least 5 or 10 better seasons just from other catchers during that time span.

    Yastzremski is far too low. He should easily be in the top 10 for his 1967 season.

    Frank Robinson 1966 is a major snub.

    Disgraceful that A-Rod made the top 5.

    Other good years that are left out:
    • Luis Gonzalez 2001
    • Jason Giambi 2001
    • Jim Edmonds 2004
    • John Olerud 1993
    • Ken Griffey Jr 1997
    • Ken Caminiti 1996
    • Javy Lopez 2003



    Now, I am not saying all of these years are top 40. I mention them only because they're better than some of the years on the list.

    not one Hank Aaron season, even an honorable mention?

    57, 59, 62, 63 are all very good

    Frank Robinson 62 and 66 are pretty solid

    Dick Allen 66 72

    Also how is 1992 Bonds better than his 1993 season?

    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.
    All good catches. Besides Piazza any other suggestions?

    Since this is a Top 40, is Casey Kasem announcing the winners?

    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

    1924 is 23 years before 1947.
