Four Rangers Lead Their Position in VORP in the AL.

This relates to Adam's post on Rangers Who Hit, and was pointed out to me by someone else. I found it cool in a prideful way.

Four Rangers lead their position in Value Over Replacement Player in the American League: Ian Kinsler 14.1, Michael Young 9.3, Josh Hamilton 15.5 and Milton Bradley 14.8.

I'll be honest, I've been watching the games, but I haven't been keeping track of box scores and results lately (outside of the climbing number of wins). I'm a little (pleasently) surprised by Kinsler. That, again, was something touched on by Adam.

All four are also tops at their positions in Win Shares according to The Hardball Times. Additionally, Gerald Laird ranks 2nd among all AL catchers in their WS system.

Ramon Vasquez also ranks third in VORP among third basemen. Blalock, with all his time missed, ranks 6th. None of this is any sort of surprise (except, to me, Kinsler), but I think it's a nice little badge of pride.
