I joined a podcast today, and to prepare for it, I feverishly prepared some great Barry Bonds numbers to back his Hall of Fame-worthy resume. Just in case you were unaware of his all things awesome:

Bonds numbers – career (1986-1992 with PIT, 1993-2007 with SFG)

  • 762 HR (most all time)
  • 514 SB
  • .444 OBP (6th all time – Williams, Ruth, John McGraw, Billy Hamilton, Gehrig)
  • 168.0 fWAR (2nd all time – Ruth)
  • 182 OPS+ (3rd all time – Ruth, Williams)
  • 2,558 walks (most all time, more walks than hits than all but five players on this year’s ballot)
  • .309 ISO (3rd all time – Ruth, McGwire)
  • .435 wOBA (13th all time)

Bonds numbers – single-season

  • .609 OBP in 2004 in 617 PA with 232 BB (120 IBB)
    • .500+ OBP four times (01-04)
    • Fourteen 100+ BB seasons
    • 73 HR in 2001
    • Six-time 200+ OPS+ (92, 93, 01-04)
      • Three best single season OPS+ of all-time (01, 02, 04)
    • Ten seasons of 20 HR-20 SB (87, 90-98), Five of 30-30 (90, 92, 95, 96, 97)
