Best individual season by each possition
what season you put as the best individual season ever in each possition, including starters and closers.
For example for the 3B I find a closest call between Al Rosen's 1953 (MVP, 1srt in hrs, runs, rbi, slg, ops , obp and 2nd batting avg and obp, loss the triple crown by decimals) and George Brett's 1980 (390 avg and batting champion, 1rst in obp, slg and ops).
I am writing from Caracas, Venezuela and not perfect english speaker, then please consider my grammar error with that perspective.

That's interesting as well. I've always had Campy's 1953 drilled into my head as the best ever by a catcher. Most of the others are not really surprising (notwithstanding my general ignorance of 19th century baseball).
