    Nope, he was better because he got to the World Series. Besides a 215 OPS+ fares better than a 200 OPS+. So it's not like Musial ran away with this competition.

That's what made me pick 1946.
    So Williams was better because he had better teammates. Makes sense.

    Williams looks great in 1946, but the leagues were still hurting from WWII. They carried 30 men on the rosters that year, to give fair chances to both the returning war veterans and to the players that replaced them. So Ted was hitting against a lot of pitchers who were either rusty or on the way to being released.

    Musial's 1948 is just full of too many pluses - he led the league in 11 major categories.

    Musial, easily. He led the league in everything that year and it was probably one of the top 5 or 6 player seasons of all time.

    1946 Ted Williams. All were great seasons, but for MVP purposes Williams v.46 tops.
