I’ll cover the entire 40 man roster and will split it between position players and pitchers (generally 20 or so guys on each list). Each week the list will change based on the past week’s performance - but also taking into account their performance year to date.
These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, scribblings on Cam Bedrosian’s Five Guys wrappers, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Matt Shoemaker’s beard.
Justin Upton on top of this list? You bet!! He out Trout’d Mike Trout last week by a long shot. The offense is still crawling through. Despite winning 5 of 6 games last week, they only scored 25 total runs - not exactly a juggernaut. Ian Kinsler and Justin Upton were responsible for 75% of the team’s 8 homers and Kinsler, Upton, and Pujols knocked in 65% of the team’s runs. If it takes a team - where is the rest of them?
