Baseball Players' Best Seasons: Team by Team Rankings

Baseball Players' Best Seasons: Team by Team Rankings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Team-by-team for both the National and American leagues, this reference ranks the best season performances by position in baseball history. A dual ranking system considers both the volume and the rate of success achieved by a player in a particular season, with several sabremetric devices forming the basis of the rankings. All-Star line-ups are compiled for each team, as well as a brief history of each team and its players.

Synopsis:

More than any other sport, baseball is about statistics--the numbers do not lie. The players who shine in the boxscore are the ones most likely remembered, and a single spectacular season can cement a player's place in history. This book acknowledges not only the baseball fans passion for player-to-player comparisons but also the tug of team loyalty on the games enthusiasts. Providing the statistical tools to better gauge the performance of players between teams and through time, the work allows Cubs fans, for instance, to ask--and answer--whether the best deadball performances by Brown, Reulbach, and Vaughn should be weighed more lightly than those by pitchers like Alexander, Warneke, and Jenkins, who shined in later, more hitter-friendly eras.
