DESCRIPTION: This quiz contains the top 50 career-best seasons from 1990-present according to my own value statistic, Relief Pitcher Wins Above Replacement. In other words, a pitcher is only listed once for his best season. STATISTIC: RP WAR is the sum of 1) the average of a pitcher's Wins Above Average, Win Probability Added, and Run Expectancy Wins; and 2) their replacement level value (WAR - WAA). Baseball Reference is the source for all data. RULES: Ties for 50th place are broken by selecting (A) active pitchers, then (B) highest career WAR.
