2017 saw the Dodgers put together their best season in about three decades. There were numerous Dodgers who had terrific campaigns in 2017.
With contributions from top to bottom, from stars to surprises, depth was the battle cry that rang true all year. But was there a Dodger last year who was good enough to be ranked among the greatest Dodger seasons ever?
This is an imperfect science, and maybe an imperfect list. It has been attempted to be constructed relative to the era the player was in, the season’s historical significance, the player’s postseason performance, (if applicable) and their overall statistical dominance. If a player has been listed once, the odds of them being listed again are slim in order to spread around the praise and go through the books. (Unless the season is really super great)
