I saw a blurb in the paper about a week ago about a season Barry Bonds had. It got me to thinking, is Bonds 2004 season this the greatest offensive season ever?
.362/.609/.812 OPS 1.422 OPS+263 45 HR's.
Joey Votto's best OBP season was below .500, Pujols' highest was .462. Barry Bonds put up a good slugging number for an OBP. Acknowledging he was on roids along with many others, the guy made an out less that 40% of the time and managed to hit 45 HRs in one of the most pitcher friendly ball park in the game.
