Someone tell Dave Cameron that Max Scherzer’s “diving third baseman who makes a great play” is Miguel Cabrera.

Nominations for worst baserunners who should be good, and best baserunners who should be bad based on 2013 BsR:

For the Manny Ramirez Award:
5. J.J. Hardy -2.5 BsR
4. Starlin Castro -2.5
3. Norichika Aoki – 3.2
2. Howie Kendrick – 3.6
1. Martin Prado -4.3

For the Joe Mauer Award:
5. Wilin Rosario +0.9 BsR
4. John Buck +1.2
3. Chris Davis +1.8
2. Ryan Zimmerman +3.0
1. Daniel Murphy +4.4

Note, Tony Womack is 18th in career BsR since 1940, so actually not bad at all. I renamed the bad, but should be good award after Manny Ramirez of the career -31.7 BsR. I considered Vladimir Guerrero at -27.7, but Manny just seemed more appropriate.

Also note, John Jaso has a career -2.2 BsR, so I renamed the good, but should be bad award after Joe Mauer and his career +11.1 BsR. Russell Martin, reigning king of the delayed steal and career +2.2 BsR, is another good choice.
