View Full Version : Most unique seasons

Looking at some of Willy Taveras stats (like I do when I need a laxative), I found his last season line of .306 OBP and 68 SB to be quite unique (http://www.redszone.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1780324&postcount=396). So, I got to thinking. What are the best "unique" seasons had by an individual player or a team? Note, these aren't necessarily good or bad seasons, but unique.

I always remember when the Reds acquired Mariano Duncan in 1995 (blocking a claim from the similarly playoff-bound Braves IIRC), his OBP was less than his batting average...he hadn't walked yet all season.

He had had 200 PA exactly with 1 sacrifice bunt and 3 sacrifice flies.

I love that Duncan came in 23rd in the MVP voting in 85 with the following line: .244 .293 .340

I've mentioned it before, but in Enzo Hernandez's rookie season of 1971, he made 618 plate appearances and drove in 12 runs. I'd have to think that was fairly unique...

No at bats and sixteen caught steeling! Awesome...he must've been the baseball stolen base prototype for Rex Grossman's passing game.

Wow, that's really bad. Without searching, the most comparable thing I can think of is Alvaro Espinoza's 1990 season with the Yankees in which he had 20 RBIs over 150 games. I'd like to see what he could have done if there weren't a DH.

Luis Castillo had 617 PAs in 2000 and drove in 17 runs.

He had 182 PA with men on base and had 15 RBI in those situations. 33 hits, 3 doubles.

Crazy, but good season for him. Probably the best of his career. .334/.418/.388/OPS+111

I know he did it as a reliever, but Roy Face's 1959 record of 18-1 has always amazed me.
On the other hand, Terry Felton's 0-13 record in 1982 is just as amazing...quite a top off for an 0-16 career.
And, finally, there is Phil Niekro's 1979 season of 21-20.

In 1973, Wilbur Wood was 24-20. He started nearly 50 games, and I believe he relieved some also.

Johnny Mize had 51 HRs and only 42 Ks in 1947. I believe that is the only time someone hit 50 HRs and had less strikeouts in the same season.

Maybe true if you set 50 HR as the benchmark, but our very own Big Klu hit 49 homers in 1954 and struck out only 35 times. He had a couple of other years with 40+ homers and fewer than 40 Ks as well.

My dad would tell me great, larger than life stories of Ted Williams the batter, and then turn around and rant for ten minutes about what a jerk the guy was. Williams did have many remarkable seasons, but 1941 was pretty unique. Besides hitting .406, he slugged 37 homers, walked 147 times, drove in 120, had a .553 OBP, and a .735 SLG. All that and he struckout only 27 times.

Joe DiMaggio had 361 career HRs and 369 career Ks.

His last season he had 12 HRs and 36 Ks so he almost made it with more career HRs than Ks.

Steve Carlton's 1972 season is one of those things that I, who grew up watching baseball primarily in the 90s, have a hard time even comprehending.

Comparing the 1970-1978 season to the last 9 by just looking at the MLB pitching totals says a lot about how much offense has taken hold of the game.

From 1876-1946 there was always over 100 complete games in a season, from 47 to 70 baseball failed to achieve that, then they ran off 6 in a row and 1 more for good luck. the 500 number hasn't been touched since 1988.

From 1970-1978 there was a complete game every 3.9 games, a save every 5.3 games and a HR every 1.35 games, in 2000-2008 there was a complete game every 27 games and and 1 save every 4 games, there is a HR every .93 games.


1970-1978 2.47 pitchers per game

2000-2008 3.74 pitchers per game

I can't get past the fact that something that's unique can't be more unique than something else that's unique.

I'm going to cheat and go with a line that's completely irrelevant to modern baseball, but I always like to look at Will White's line from 1879. I'm pretty sure this is unique in Reds history.

Griffey Jr's 1997 & 1998 (http://www.baseball-reference.com/g/griffke02.shtml) seasons are unique in that they are as eerily close to identical as anyone who logged significant time has ever put up in the history of the game.

Bob Bailey in 1967 and 1968 had the exact same number of ABs and hits.
