  1. The sad part is that this group of fielders combined with an average pitching staff would have been better than 7 teams last season (0.450 w%).

    I hope you plan on completing the list with replacement level pitching.

  3. Dave:

    Great series, as usual. Can I just ask where you’re getting the +0 defense for Langerhans?

  4. oopps… Given that he’s -2 or something bUZZR career/150, and about +15 in the corners. CHONE is more optimistic about him in CF, of course.

  6. so about 70 wins

  7. In other words, it took actually negative talent for the Mariners to spend $117M and win just 61 games last year.

  8. No, we haven’t demonstrated that yet – we’ve only demonstrated that the M’s performance was worse than a team with half the talent of an average team. If replacement pitching also drops 11 wins against average, then the M’s were easily 3 wins better than negative talent.

    I’m sure that’s comforting.
