Yesterday’s “Stat of the Day” at Baseball Prospectus was this gem:

STAT OF THE DAY

Bottom 5 2006 NL Starting Second Basemen, by PECOTA
Projected VORP

Player, Team, Projected VORP

Tony Womack, CIN, -10.6
Dan Uggla, FLO, 0.5
Luis Gonzalez, COL, 9.2
Junior Spivey, SLN, 10.3
Jose Castillo, PIT, 12.0

Yes, folks, something called Dan Uggla is worth 11 runs more than Tony Womack. And Womack is projected to be more than ten runs worse than a replacement player.

Sheesh.
