Re: 2001 or 2004 Bonds?

2004..... because I favor OBP and OPS. Have you looked at 2002? I haven't in a while.... but have always regarded that as his best season.

Re: 2001 or 2004 Bonds?

2002 he has a higher AVG than either 01/04, but lower OPS than both. Also only has 18 fire.

Re: 2001 or 2004 Bonds?

I’d go for the power of 01 over the walks of 04. That of course depends what else you are doing, like stadium setup (get that lefty big boost!). Power transfers to PC much better than AVG and OBP do, plus if you get to slump bust him too, watch out.

Originally I thought the 2004 Bonds season would translate to pennantchase sims better than 2001 and I liked the idea of Bonds getting on base seemingly all the time but I have had much better results with the 2001 Bonds because of his previously mentioned power and probably also because of the higher fire number as well.
An on fire Bonds is completely deadly and placed in the #3 spot behind some good hitters he becomes arguably the biggest offensive force in most of the Leagues I am in.

2004... no doubt.
He wins mvp almost every single season in best of 2000 with that 2004 season, there his a huge gap in batting average and obp and still has outstanding power with +.800 slg...

why using the 2001 season, where is batiing average of .328 is not a huge asset... vs .360 plus in 2004...

2004 as all the tools, obp as an asset, power as an asset, avg as an asset....

at the end of the day, Bonds will be a better challenger for the triple crown with is 2004 season...
