Synopses & Reviews
In this new analysis, Bob Strauss has compiled all statistics on the best hitters in baseball history. The result is unique, simple, new, and meaningful statistics. Unlike current statistics, these new numbers truly compare the best batters of the last 120 years. "The Best" includes all statistics on the greatest players at your fingertips. And it ranks them on their careers, comparative careers, single seasons, and their best 5 and 10 consecutive years of play. In 2004, Barry Bonds tied Babe Ruth as the only player with a slugging average of over .800 in two seasons. Yet Bonds? 2000 season resulted in great Total Run Production (TRP) and a higher Run Production Average (RPA) despite a slugging average of over 100 points less. Each player is rated in these new categories and on his Total Net Bases (TNB) and Total Base Average (TBA). These new statistics can be used individually or combined in the Total Offensive Production (TOP).
