From 1901 to the present - the start of the two leagues - there have been 12,880 qualified player seasons. Kole Calhoun's 2 wRC+ is dead last of those 12,880 seasons. #12,879 is at 23 wRC+.

OK, that's hardly fair including him within full season players. What about those with 150+ PA? (Kole's at 161).

30,575 player seasons. Kole's 2018 performance is #30,566.

In other words, as a hitter Kole has been worse than every single major leaguer from 1901 to the present with 150+ PA, except for 9 players. Of 30,575.

The one I remember from 50 years ago....Tiggers SS Ray Oyler hit .135 in some 300+ at bats.

Ray also had a stint with the Halos.  I remember Gary Owens saying he wanted to get a Ray Oyler game used bat as a souvenir. 

 

 

 

 

It would be in mint condition.

So this year we've had an ESPN article saying Trout might have the greatest year ever. And we also have the guy who might have the worst year ever? What are the odds? Seriously, it must be astronomical.

Greatest Year of All Time, Worst Year of All Time, 3000 hitter HOF, and Greatest Showman of all time.

How COLD can this can this guy get this year anyway? If he can get below a  .100 avg. he will probably be a MLB icon forever and replace the 'old Mendoza line' with one of his own. 

The Calhoun line. Someday people will be saying "Ramirez has been in a Calhoun of a slump, below the Calhoun line: batting .095 in his last 20 ABs"

Mendoza line: sub .200, Calhoun line: sub .100

By someday you mean in 50 years when there is a hitter as bad as Cold again.
