IIRC, Bonds has the best single season, era-adjusted OPS of all-time. I probably would have taken him first too.

Yeah, you're definitely on point. He set the walks record and home run record in the same year I think.

And I don't remember if it was the same season that you're referring to, but I know he had an OB% of over .600 once. That's some video game s**t right there.

It's like he had some huge game help or something.
Barry Bonds should be the number 1 player taken in this.

he walks, hits for average, hits homeruns, drives in runs, steals bases, and played gold glove defense.

Does this take in account how the players are on defense as well or is it just offense?

it gives D ratings as well, IE range/field

You could have all this before he turned into the Big Swoll Otherwise if you want his very best season, its gonna be without steals, and gold glove D.

You could argue against Ruth too, how diverse was his league? Not very. He didn't have pitchers tossing balls in the mid to high 90's consistently either. It was a completely different game back then.

It's a complete toss up as to who's the best ever. There are at least five guys that have a legititmate argument, and I think it could possibly be even more than that.
