Worst 10 WAA 2013

The downside of WAA

As mentioned in the first two theorems, for every positive WAA some must suffer negative numbers.  The following table will show players who have accumulated the worst WAA numbers in 2013. Typically high negatives go to pitchers because teams sometime have to put someone out there to pitch. Managers usually pull batters from the lineup when they fail to produce unless they’re a needed position player. Thus, batters don’t usually have as high of negatives as pitchers.
