All Crap Decade Team: Tampa Bay Devil Rays

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

The Devil Rays have never in their franchise history finished better than 4th or won more than 70 games and it shows.

Lineup (min. 100 games)

C: Dioner Navarro 2007: They got rid of Toby Hall cause he hit .231 and then Navarro goes out and hits .227 in 388 at bats the following year.

1B: Travis Lee 2006: .224 average and .295 On Base % in 343 at bats.

2B: Brent Abernathy 2002: 2 Home Runs with a .599 OPS in 463 ABs.

3B: Aubrey Huff 2001: .248 average and a .288 on base % with only 8 homers over 411 at bats.

SS: Kevin Stocker 1998: .208 Average, .282 On Base %, and .313 Slugging % in 336 at bats. All around awful.

OF: Damon Hollins 2006: .228 Average and .269 On Base % over 333 at bats in 121 games.

OF: Jonny Gomes 2006: The man Hollins was in a DH/OF/Bench platoon with hit a robust .216 in 2006 with 116 Ks in 385 at bats.

OF: Al Martin 2003: Split time between DHing and playing the OF but for this purpose he shall be considered in the OF. He hit 3 home runs and had 2 steals in 238 total at bats. Now that's production.

DH: Paul Sorrento 1998 : .225 average and a .313 On Base % while mostly DHing.

BN: Felix Martinez 2000: basically just as bad as Stocker at SS in 2000. Hit .214 with a .305 On Base % and .298 slugging percentage. Yes a slugging percentage below .300. Wow.

BN: Nick Green 2005: 3 Homers and 2 steals with a .239 average in 318 at bats.

BN: Geoff Blum 2004: While platooning everywhere for the Drays in 04 Blum hit .215 with a miserable .266 On Base % in 339 at bats.

BN: Jared Sandberg 2002:.229 average and 139 Ks in 358 at bats.

Starting Pitching (min. 18 starts)

SP: Tanyon Sturtze 2002: Win loss record doesn't necessarily say everything about a pitcher's performance, but damn 4-18 is bad.

SP: Ryan Rupe 2000: 5-6 with a 6.92 ERA. 160 Base runners in 91 innings. (Note was just as bad in 2001)

SP: Joe Kennedy 2003 : 3-12 with a 6.13 ERA in 32 games 22 started.

SP: Hideo Nomo 2005: Gave up over a touchdown per game with an ERA of 7.24 going 5-8 in 19 starts.

SP: Edwin Jackson 2007: Sucked less the last month of the season but 5-15 with a 5.76 ERA is terrible.
