  • 40/20 Seasons

    The other day, Ryan Braun reached the 40 HR / 20 SB mark.

    Can you name (without looking it up) the other 5 active players who've done this?

    1) Alex Rodriguez 1998, 1999, 2005 & 2007 (chicagowhitesox1173)
    2) Chipper Jones 1999 (chicagowhitesox1173)
    3) Alfonso Soriano - 2006 (GiambiJuice)
    4) Curtis Granderson - 2011 (GiambiJuice)

    Alex Rodriguez
    Vladimer Guerrero..Might be ineligable
    Josh Hamilton...not sure if he ever got 20 stolen bases
    Adrian Beltre...again not sure if he got stolen bases
    Chipper Jones

      ARod of course
      Vladdy's not on the table since he's not active, but believe it or not - he never did it.
      Hamilton is a no go.
      Beltre no go as well.
      Chipper is a winner!!

        Alfonso Soriano went 40-40.

        And I believe Granderson did it last year.
        My top 10 players:

        1. Babe Ruth
        2. Barry Bonds
        3. Ty Cobb
        4. Ted Williams
        5. Willie Mays
        6. Alex Rodriguez
        7. Hank Aaron
        8. Honus Wagner
        9. Lou Gehrig
        10. Mickey Mantle

          Sorry for the delay as my laptop was on the fritz for about a week and I forgot about this.

          GJ is correct with both Soriano and Granderson. One left to go.

              David Wright?
              Hanley Ramirez?

                Both good guesses, but not quite.

                When I asked this question at my local pub the other day, ARod was called out in less than a minute. Soriano was next about 10 minutes later. Took almost 1/2 hour for Granderson and that's becuase the guy who walked in thru the door had him on his fantasy team last year. Chipper required a few clues. The final answer couldn't be gotten.
