Some not so memorable ones from last year.

1. Nick Punto, MIN, 3b 536 PA .210/.291/.27, -27.1 Vorp
2. Craig Monroe, DET, lf 372 PA, .222/.264/.373 -15.7 Vorp
3. Josh Barfield, CLE, 2b 444 PA, .243/.270/.324 -13.6
4. Ray Durham, SFN, 2b 528 PA .218/.295/.343 -10.5
5. Jose Lopez, SEA, 2b 561 PA .252/.284/.355 -9.7

Sadly, I bet most of those guys were drafted in almost all fantasy leagues (at least with MI and CI slots).
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

10 Worst Seasons of 300 - 501 AB
5-Nyls Nyman CF/LF, 1975: .226/.255/.281, Ops plus (51), Vorp (-16.7), 2 win shares, 1 win share per 171 PA.

There’s not too much on the Web about Nyls. About the most interesting thing I found about him is that he’s the last player in the “N’s” in the Baseball Encyclopedia.

10-Omar Moreno RF, 1986: .234/.263/.252, Ops plus (69), Vorp (-15.4), 3 win shares, 1 win share per 128 PA.

He also had 17 stolen bases out of 33 attempts, for a terrible 51% stolen base success rate. One of the most over-rated players of my lifetime, Omar was a virtual one man out-machine. Omar and Chuck Tanner were re-united for Omar’s last season in the majors. Tanner was one of those managers who never put the red light on anybody except maybe Willie Stargell. I think the 1978 Pirates set some sort of record for caught stealing if I’m not mistaken.
