  • OPS greater than 1.000 with OPS+ lower than 150

    It happened nine times during the high-offense 1920's and 1930's but it's only happened three times since.

    Who can name the three players since the 30's who had a single-season OPS of at least 1.000 but finished with an OPS+ lower than 150.
    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

    I'll make the obvious guess of Larry Walker.

        Found one! Todd Helton, 2002. He had a 1.006 OPS/148 OPS+.

              Andres Galarraga had exactly a 150 with a 1.005. I'm sure that doesn't count since it is not below.

                  So I guess it's actually 4 players. For some reason Burks didn't come up in the query. One more...

                          Looking up the list, I found two 19th century players who did this. One I think is too obscure--Jake Stenzel. The other was a shortstop. Who?

                          The year should be a cinch. No peeking of course.
