Comments

The points score is obviously skewed by those players who spent such a little time on the roster. Examples of this are Jonathan Albaladejo amongst the pitchers and  Nunez, Huffman, Johnson, Russo and Winn amongst the batters. If you mentally sort these into a separate list entitled minors / bench and bear in mind that the two lists of scores are on scales that bear no resemblance to each other, it actually does tell us something about the season gone by. It reminds us, particularly, how bad and below par a season Posada, Jeter, Vazquez and Burnett had and how much of a misfit Kearns was in his short stay in pinstripes.
