Got me thinking about single-season all-time WAR Leaders. Interesting list.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/WAR_bat_season.sht...

A few surprises:

Carl Yastrzemksi ('67) tied for third with Babe Ruth ('27) who is 1st and 2nd on the list.

Cal Ripkin('91) tied with Ruth and Honus Wagner at 11.

20-year-old Mike Trout tied with 27-year old Ted Williams ('46)

Al "The Hebrew Hammer" Rosen ('53) and Rico Petrocelli ('69) are the only non-active players with 10+ WAR who aren't in the Hall.
