Pedro Feliz Receives Recognition... For Being The Worst Player In Baseball

New, 2 comments

Ever since Pedro Feliz teased Astros fans with his serviceable April and his lame excuse for a nine-game hitting streak entering June, he has been even worse. Ed Wade has actually made some nice veteran acquisitions in Brandon Lyon and Jeff Keppinger, but Feliz has been a disaster.

Often times we playfully toss around the idea that somebody is the 'worst' at something. But there's no kidding around with Feliz: statistically, he is the worst player in baseball. Take it away, Beyond the Boxscore:

And speaking of Pedro Feliz, he's currently been the worst player in baseball in terms of wins above replacement. The 35-year-old started the season as Houston's everyday third baseman and has continued to receive regular playing time since losing his job to Chris Johnson, despite the fact that he has yet to look like an MLB-quality player this season. His .218/.241/.310 line is truly ugly, and his once-fantastic glove has graded out as well below-average this season. He doesn't walk, he doesn't hit for average, he doesn't hit for power, and he doesn't play good defense. I suppose that's how you put up a minus-1.6 WAR on the season so far.

You see that? If Pedro Feliz finds his way onto the field, we're suddenly losing the war.
