Ranking the 40 greatest individual seasons in MLB since is no easy endeavor. But MLB Network did just that, revealing its top 40 seasons on Sunday night. To say the list is impressive is an understatement. From starting pitchers with ERAs below to hitters slugging over, here.

Get this from a library. Major league baseball's greatest individual offensive seasons: the best from the 20th century, [Jeff Wing]. InRuth had – by all accounts – the greatest offensive season baseball has ever seen.

That year, Ruth set the home run record w and would go on to break the mark years later. He also hit and led the league with RBI. To date, Ruth’s runs scored and total bases in still stand as tops : Sean Quinton. Lou Gehrig's season was the catalyst for perhaps the greatest baseball team of all time.

So, we settled for highlighting the absolute best of the best. Gaudy numbers by baseball players don't always tell the whole story.

This far-from-scientific or statistically sound list attempts to rank the most dominant baseball seasons by its best hitters. This list utilizes a shaky algorithm (I don't even really know what that is!!!) of my own flimsy creation that measures players statistics relative to the league they played in and the five best.

In Major League Baseball (MLB), records play an integral part in evaluating a player's impact on the sport. Holding a career record almost guarantees a player eventual entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame because it represents both longevity and consistency over a long period of time.

To compile a list of the best Major League Baseball teams of all time, there’s more than a century of data to mine and some parameters to set. For one thing, a team can’t be great if they lose in the playoffs.
