Paul Goldschmidt returned from a season ending injury in 2014 to finish with the 34th best season by a 1B since 1970!  Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera are the only players who rank higher since 2010.


1998 Mark McGwire was an animal, and posted the only 1500+ season ever before Todd Helton did so in 2000, falling 38 points short of the position record.
