There are so many more useful stats today than there were years ago. From OBP to BABIP, we as fans can break down who on our team has really been useful and who is just taking up a roster spot.
One stat in particular is useful when looking at the big picture: WAR. Wins Above Replacement.
As Baseball Reference explains it "A single number that presents the number of wins a player added to the team above what a replacement player (think AAA or AAAA) would add."
Too many times this year it's looked like the Sox have had a AAA-esque player at DH. As it turns out, sometimes that guy has been worse than a replacement player.
I'll take you through the five worst players on the White Sox this season according to the WAR statistic.
