  1. Joe Posnanski has expounded many thousands of words of the futility of Perez in a Royal uniform. It’s pretty sad.

  2. I saw the title in my RSS feed, and I was thinking, “Why would FanGraphs write about the Detroit Lions?”

  3. Boy, steroids sure do make you better at baseball, don’t they?

  4. Perez was suspended for AMPHETAMINE use, not steroids. It’s amazing how often I’m seeing players that were suspended for amphetamines being referred to as roiders.

  5. I was hoping you were going to come around to Jeff Francoeur somewhere because that’s what this reminds me of. He cost the Braves $7 million in 2008 just by being on the field in the place of a league minimum player. And people still want to give this guy another shot?? Since Perez in 2002, his season is the worst with the exception of an aging Bernie Williams in 2005.

  6. Among qualified players, yes. If you widen the search to “All Players” you’ll find a few who were worse.

  7. Lets not forget the good deals the Royals made this last season like the signing of Jose Guillen. It looks like thats going to work out great.

  8. How about Andruw Jones, circa 2008 (.505 OPS in ~240 PA)
    Value Wins: -0.4
    Dollars: -1.6M
    Salary: 14.7M

    so, he was worth 16.3 million less than what he was paid???

  9. Geez, Dave, you’re going to make Rany Jazayerli shoot himself.

  10. Perez’s profile now says that he was -3.1 wins in 2002, as opposed to -3.5. What happened?

  11. Ah, of course! Double plays! Just found where they were added to Fangraphs’ UZR. And so .4 wins of Perez’s historical reputation was salvaged.

  12. Maybe now the Reds will sign him so Dusty Baker can hit him in the 2 hole.

  13. I wonder how much of his terrible defense is due to UZR variability. The supposedly Cansecoesque year is wedged between two seasons when he was worth +13 and +12 runs on defense, and Perez generally had a good defensive reputation.
