There are two things that we, as fans of the game, remember most when it comes to baseball. We remember the greatest teams to play the game. We remember Murderers' Row, the $100,000 infield and perhaps we will remember the Phillies rotation with its own nickname should they win a couple rings.
We also remember those who had particularly memorable seasons. For example, Justin Verlander had an amazing year, but showing how great baseball's tradition has been, it doesn't even crack this list, and neither does Cliff Lee's breakout 2008 season.
What does crack the list? Here are the 50 greatest individual seasons in MLB history. While it was not too difficult to pick out the 50 seasons, ranking such greatness and comparing eras is not an easy feat.
Each player is limited to two seasons in this slideshow in order to keep things interesting, and only one season per player will be in the top 10.
