Murderer's Row

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Murderer's Row on our hands.


Through yesterday's play, the Cardinals are the only team in the Major Leagues with four players with 170 or more total bases  (Ludwick - 185, Pujols - 182, Ankiel - 177, Glaus - 175).  We're also the only team with 4 guys in the Top 40 of the following categories (the same 4, obviously):

Home Runs

Slugging Percentage (with Pujols & Ludwick in the Top 5)

OPS

Isolated Power (with both Ludwick and Ankiel in the Top 10)

Runs Created / 27 outs (Pujols #1).

Without looking it up, I have to guess this is the only Cardinals team in my lifetime to approach such a feat (born 1972.)  But in MLB history, how rare would this be?  And what was the last team that might have pulled the the same thing off over the course of a full year?
