For example here is all the totals for the 1969 Expos

You can also do this for the 1939 Yankees.

http://www.baseball-reference.com/play-index/share.cgi?id=ZFJNl

also had the worst OPS+ for the remainder of their career, minimum 2,000 PAs:

http://bbref.com/pi/shareit/JMIgb

Winner: Cal Ripken. 130 OPS+ in seasons 1-5, 107 OPS+ for the rest of his career. Not awful, of course, and probably even expected the way he carried on with his ironman obsession. But certainly not following through fully on his early promise, performance-wise.

Widest negative spreads between early OPS+ and later OPS+: Frank Thomas (184 to 145 = -39); Don Mattingly (151 to 116 = -35); Chuck Klein (156 to 122 = -34).

Widest positive spreads: Barry Bonds (133 to 197 = +64); Rogers Hornsby (150 to 182 = +32);; Mark McGwire (142 to 173 = +31). Hmmm ... I wonder what Hornsby was on? 🙂

Notables who never made 2,000 PAs after season 5: Benny Kauff (156 OPS+ in season 1-5); Charlie Keller (155); George Stone (154); Jim Ray Hart (135); Pete Reiser (134); Leon Durham (132); and Bob Horner (130).

I have found that it works better when you open a new PI page between the two searches.

If you need help, I'll be happy to walk you through it.

For instance, I can search for fireballers who flamed out by seeking 200+K seasons, then running a search again of just those guys to see who had less than 100 W?

Cool!

For example, If I created a list of pitchers with a seasonal ERA+ of at least 150 (say from 1973 on) and I wanted to find the players with the highest batting OPS+, the season finder would return all seasons for every player listed, not just the seasons in question.

The same issue would arise if I wanted to find the player with the fewest HRs in a season in which he had a 3 HR game.

Thanks.
