The Random Stat thread....

The Nationals are already -17 in Defensive Runs Saved.  They have only played 13 games. That puts them on pace to have -210 DRS, lol.



EDIT: crap, wrong forum. Little help, mods?

The Jays have the lowest pitching WAR in MLB at 0.4.

There are currently 55 individual pitchers with a WAR higher then the Jays entire staff.

There are 14 relievers with a higher WAR then the Jays staff.

Roberto Osuna has a higher WAR than the Jays staff.

Yeah, its still crazy how young Harper is. He is actually a month younger than Mookie Betts.

It's pretty incredible that that was the first one ever. What was Jung Ho Kang doing at third base though? He needed the SS and 2B to scream at him otherwise it seemed like he was going to walk into the dugout with the ball after only 2 outs lol.

The Dodgers' Kenley Jansen returned from the DL tonight to strike out 4 in one inning (I love seeing that stat line).

One of those players was Drew Stubbs, his 3rd K of the game. That brought his season total to 25 in just 45 plate appearances. His absurdly awful 55.6 K% ranks first by a large margin for players with over 40 PA. Before tonight Stubbs had played in just 19 games and somehow found a way to accumulate -0.6 WAR. That nice hitter's park in Denver is sure helping him out.

As of today, Oakland has scored the 8th most runs in MLB (4th in AL), while also posting the 8th best team ERA (4th in AL), but have the 3rd worst record in baseball. Go figure.

That said, they also have committed the most errors.

I know it had been brought up beforehand, but the Texas Rangers outscored their opponents by just eight runs( 765-757 )during 2016, I believe it was the poorest run differential ever by a team that won 95 or more games during the regular season...

Pat Tabler has the highest batting average (.489), and OBP (.505) in major league history with the bases loaded (minimum 100 PA's).

I mentioned this in a thread a while ago but Juan Uribe is 1 HR away from becoming the worst (by wRC+) hitter to ever hit 200 HR's.


I really hope someone signs him.

No kidding. He's 10th in SLG and 2nd in OPS as well. Albert Belle is #1.

Tabby and Buck are a match made in heaven.

"You evaluate players by how many runs they drive in and how many runs they score"

Actual quote from one of them. I would say which one but it barely matters.

I just discovered that former Blue Jay Tony Batista's 2000 season was the worst one ever in terms of wRC+ (100) for players who have hit 40 or more home runs in a season (he hit 41). Todd Frazier almost matched it this year (40 HR, 102 wRC+) and sits in 2nd place.

The 91 win, NL West champs Dodgers, led the MLB with 96 games that they didn't turn a double play.


But apparently that's a sign of a good team (which makes sense, no base runners, no DP's) because the Cubs, Indians, and Red Sox were all in the Top 10 too.

In late August 1994, MLB was over two weeks into a strike that interrupted the season. Just before the waiver trade deadline expired, the Minnesota Twins traded aging outfielder/designated hitter Dave Winfield to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later.

Two weeks after the trade, on Sept. 14, the rest of the 1994 season was canceled, so Winfield never played for the Indians that season, and no player was ever named in exchange.

Later on, executives from both the Indians and Twins got together for a dinner, with Indians’ execs picking up the dinner tab, making Winfield the only player in MLB history ever traded for a five-star meal.

Kerry Lightenburg was acquired by the Braves for $720 worth of equipment.

He was pitching in the independent leagues and his manager convinced the BRaves to sign him. Since the indy league manager was just going to use the money to buy equipment anyway they decided to cut out the middle man and the braves gave them like 2 dozen balls and some bats in exchange for Lightenburgs contract.
