Re: Greatest individual season?
I think one of the more underrated best seasons is Stan Musial's 1948 season.
.376 BA, .450 OBP, .702 SLG, 1.152 OPS, 200 OPS+ (all NL leading stats).
The two most interesting parts of that season is the insanely low 34 strikeouts and 429 total bases. It may have not been the greatest season of all time but I can't think of many players that had great seasons who had that many total bases. As great as Ted Williams was, he didn't even have a 400+ total base season.
That said, I think my favorite season (not secondarily the best) is Ted Williams 1957 season. The stats themselves are mind boggling but what was impressive about that season to me is that he was 38 years old at the time he accomplished it.
