Baseball Prospectus publishes its VORP rankings (Value Over Replacement Player) here:

 

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/statisti...index.php?cid=1

 

VORP measures the number of runs contributed beyond what a replacement-level player at the same position would contribute if given the same percentage of team plate appearances. VORP scores do not consider the quality of a player's defense -- so this list is based on offense only.

 

Here are the starting lineups, with the player's overal VORP MLB ranking in parentheses:

 

AL:

C Jason Varitek-BOS (35)

1B Mark Teixeira-TEX (31)

2B Brian Roberts-BAL (3)

SS Miguel Tejada-BAL (4)

3B Alex Rodriguez-NYY (5)

OF Gary Sheffield-NYY (9)

OF Hideki Matsui-NYY (18)

OF Johnny Damon-BOS (23)

DH David Ortiz-BOS (7)

 

NL

C Paul Lo Duca-FLA (86)

1B Derrek Lee-CHC (1)

2B Chase Utley-PHI (20)

SS Felipe Lopez-CIN (22)

3B Morgan Ensberg-HOU (11)

OF Miguel Cabrera-FLA (6) (YES, SIX!)

OF Bobby Abreu-PHI (10)

OF Jason Bay-PIT (13)

DH Albert Pujols-STL (2)

 

The AL starting lineup looks pretty damn close to the actual AL lineup. But the NL lineup is quite a bit different! I especially like the assessment that right now, Miggy Cabrera is the most productive outfielder in the majors.

Congratulations. How'd you do that, is there a website that has statistics or something?

 

Wait, who's Cabrera?
