Prospectus Hit and Run: The Vortices of Suck, Part II


Jay Jaffe

Which outfielders and DHs proved to be the biggest black holes in the majors?

Picking up where I left off on Friday, we continue hunting the fish at the bottom of the major-league barrel in search of the positions where teams got the worst production—worse than the Replacement-Level Killers, but without the burden of toiling for a contending team.

On the Beat: Futures Game Recap


John Perrotto
