SI: The Worst Positions in Baseball & How to Fix Them

I really think this list is accurate. I do also think the Angels weren't too far off from the worst production at third base in the AL. Yes the Yankees were the worst, but who was the 2nd worst? 3rd?

 

Lets look around the AL.

 

Best to Worst by WAR

 

1 Oakland Athletics - Josh Donaldson

2 Detroit Tigers - Miguel Cabrera 

3 Baltimore Orioles - Manny Machado

4 Tampa Bay Rays - Evan Longoria
5 Texas Rangers - Adrian Beltre

6 Seattle Mariners - Kyle Seager

7 Toronto - Brett Lawrie

8 Houston Astros - Matt Dominguez

9 Cleveland - Lonnie Chisenhall / Mike Aviles 

10 Minnesota - Trevor Plouffe 

11 Los Angeles Angels - Callaspo/Romine/Jimenez/Nelson

12 Kansas City Royals - Mike Moustakas

13 Chicago White Sox - Conor Gilaspie

14 Boston Red Sox - Will Middlebrooks

15 New York Yankees - A-Rod / Others

Looking at the other 8 positions, the Angels were top five production at Catcher, Center Field and DH by WAR.

 

 

At 1st and 2nd they were top half.

 

At SS, they were bottom five. In RF & LF, they were bottom half. 

 

Does this mean Chris Iannetta might be our most valuable trade asset?

This just in: Jeff Mathis still sucks at baseball.

 

Catcher

NL: Miami Marlins (52 OPS+): Might as well start with the absolute worst position in baseball, the one with the lowest OPS+. Miami mostly used Jeff Mathis and Rob Brantly, with a bit of Miguel Olivo and Koyie Hill sprinkled in. They combined for 164 strikeouts and a .194 batting average and nine home runs.

 

Mathis did his part, hitting the majority of this group's home runs (five), and batting a robust .181 with 76 strikeouts in 232 AB in 73 games.
