I'm going to rate 7 mystery players using some sabermetric stats: OPS (OBP + SLG) & K/AB (# of K's vs. # of ABs) from the 2009 season. The higher the OPS the better, the lower the K/AB the better. So here we go:
Player A - .921 OPS (.384 OBP + .537 SLG) & .303 K/AB
Player B - .869 OPS (.371 OBP + .498 SLG) & .253 K/AB
Player C - .811 OPS (.337 OBP + .474 SLG) & .137 K/AB
Player D - .794 OPS (.342 OBP + .452 SLG) & .287 K/AB
Player E - .794 OPS (.332 OBP + .462 SLG) & .248 K/AB
Player F - .724 OPS (.345 OBP + .379 SLG) & .161 K/AB
Player G - .683 OPS (.304 OBP + .379 SLG) & .165 K/AB
So looking at these numbers Player A seems to be the superior player, followed by player B, then player C. Player D & E seem pretty even. Player F is trailing the others above & player G bringing up the rear by a pretty significant amount.
So who are they?
Player D is replacing Player A in Boston's outfield.
Player G is who Theo thinks can replace Player C at 3rd base for Boston.
Player B is the Yankees RF & Player F is the Yankees possible LF or 4th outfielder.
And Player E is David Ortiz .
