The Thursday Thinker: Adding No Value

New, 36 comments

I know I'm hammering pretty hard on Mark Kotsay this week. I promise after this I'll try to give it a rest for a while.

In yesterday's Mug I mentioned that Kotsay has been worth -3 WAR (according to B-Ref) since the start of the 2006 season. That fact by itself is pretty incredible, as there's only two position players in all of baseball who have been worth less over that time: Juan Castro (-4.3) and Jose Castillo (-3.7).

Here's a quiz to put -3 in perspective: Since the start of the 2006 season, there have only been six position players who were worth -0.5 rWAR or less as a Brewer. How many can you name in three minutes?

The rules remain the same: Post your score in the comments but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there aren't any prizes.

Some of you are masochists and will get these pretty easily. If you get them all, post your time along with your score.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!
