I forgot julio franco led the league with a .341 avg in 92. He had a pretty good career. Willie McGee also had a good career. Eddie Murray was steady and underrated.

What about Mark Langston? His strikeout totals in the first part of his career is pretty damn impressive.

Bill Madlock had 4 batting titles, everyone else with 4 or more is a HOFer (except Miguel Cabrera).

And no, I'm not pushing for Madlock to make the HOF, just someone I remember as a kid because of that.

My first thought was Soriano but he never hit for that good of average. Second thought was Vlad but he was light on runs/rbiís.

Mark Langston was a tremendous strikeout pitcher during the first half of his career. Another guy who had a really nice career and gets almost no love is David Cone. Talk about a really nice stat line during the roid era, he was quite impressive. 2,700 strikeouts, two 20-win seasons, a Cy Young Award and kept his ERA in the mid-3's.

The rest of the team was miserable with the two next highest OPS that season .789 and .755. Making that even more incredible. Only player to do that and did not win MVP. It was in the last 10 years.

He was forced to retire because he had degenerative hip and was forced to retire.

Yeah David Cone was fun to watch. I enjoy him in the booth too. How about Dave Stewart? 4 straight seasons with 20 wins, monster innings eater. Lots of complete games. He was kind of like Bob Gibson with that look, that stare. Can't forget how good he was.

Yep he stole the MVP from Kemp and that once in history season, and then had the failed PED test. What a joke.

Absolutely! Growing up here in the Bay Area, I saw quite a bit of Dave Stewart and you're right about that glare he gave hitters from the mound. Very intimidating. He had such an odd career, too. Nothing on the bookends worth noting, but the middle of his career was ridiculous.

That's Vlad or Soriano. One went 40/39 and the other 39/40.

It's Matt Kemp. They didn't have that high of avg or counting stats. He's the only one to put that line up. I looked up every 35/40 season.

Albert Belle was the first one that popped into my mind but he's been mentioned a few times. Here are some others:

- Todd Helton
- Larry Walker
- Kenny Lofton
- Luis Gonzalez
- Carlos Delgado
- Derrek Lee
- John Olerud
- Lance Berkman

You guys want some one hit wonders to guess during this snow day? (for us folks on the east coast anyway)

Player A: .355/.409/.541 25 HR, 28 SB
Player B: .331/.372/.578 37 HR, 141 RBI
Player C: .324/.369/.572 37 HR, 114 R
Player D: .314/.391/.636 44 HR, 122 RBI, 118 R

[QUOTE=EricTownsend88;13353514]Albert Belle was the first one that popped into my mind but he's been mentioned a few times. Here are some others:

saw the thread title and came to see if Belle had been mentioned.. Dude was a monster.. even in his fading years he was hitting over 100 Rbis he even had a BA of 357 one season.


Richie Sexson when he was in Milwaukee... one of the many 300 home run hitters no one talks about.

While they are amazing, steroids are not magic. Give the scientists their due.
