Ranger Runs Above Average - Positional players


I thought I'd take a small break from the all of the good fun tarring and feathering MY to put up a post.  I know we talk a lot about WAR here, but sometimes, it is good to see where the Ranger players stack up against average players, rather than replacement players.  So here, for your amusement, Are all the Ranger positional player sorted by Runs Against Average as calculated from Fangraph data.  If you wanted to know how many wins they were worth, compared to an average player at their position, you can divide by 10, and be within spittin' distance of the right ballpark.

Just for on topic sake, as you can see, last year, MY was an above average 3B last year.
