General Baseball

Interesting Data

Lifted from Sons of Sam Horn, some gear-head data. Very interesting.

Baseball Prospectus’ Runs above Replacement at Position:

Manny: 50.2
Nomar: 9.7

Arod: 29.0
Mags: 9.8

Conventional wisdom around Boston (and elsewhere) in December was that Magglio + A-Rod would outproduce Manny + Nomar. Not true. Despite missing tons of time, Nomar is actually outproducing Magglio, a shocker, and Manny is just murdering A-Rod’s production.
