Replaceable you

Posted at 11:16 AM on August 15, 2005 by Bob Collins (4 Comments)

Baseball Prospectus is out with another intriguing report -- the Value Over Replacement Player index. VORP is "the number of runs contributed beyond what a replacement-level player at the same position would contribute if given the same percentage of team plate appearances. VORP scores do not consider the quality of a player's defense."

In the list of all players, no Twin makes the top 30. Or the top 60. Joe Mauer leads the list at #62.
