OPS Over 1000

A member of SABR mentioned this week that the Cardinals 2 through 5 hitters (Rolen, Edmonds, Pujols, and Walker) all have an OPS over 1000. He was wondering if any team had duplicated such a performance for a full season. I quick query shows that the 1930 Cardinals, 1996 Mariners, and 2000 Astros all finished the season with four hitters with over 1000 OPS. Here they are...

1930 Cardinals
Ray Blades 101 1118
Showboat Fisher 254 1019
Chick Hafey 446 1059
George Watkins 391 1037

1996 Mariners
Ken Griffey Jr. 545 1020
Edgar Martinez 499 1059
Alex Rodriguez 601 1045
Mark Whiten 140 1006

2000 Astros
Moises Alou 454 1039
Jeff Bagwell 590 1039
Ken Caminiti 208 1001
Richard Hidalgo 558 1028

You'll notice that each team has one player with relatively few at bats and of course the Cardinals will have Walker for less than half a season.
