Back in the “Save Phil Hughes” days I once ran a post in which I tried to determine “The crappiest 25-man Yankee roster of all time,” which is always a fun way to kill some time on a slow Hot Stove day. The roster I ended up with — while entertaining — doesn’t appear to be based on anything other than my memory of how bad the respective players were, so I wanted to see statistically who the least valuable Yankees of the last 10 seasons actually were. Thankfully Fangraphs allows us to do so rather easily. There’s no minimum PA needed to rank on this list; I’m simply looking at the players who accumulated the worst fWAR during their Yankee tenure.
And the dishonor goes to:
Heh. Quite the motley crew of castoffs. We all knew Womack was pretty awful, but it’s nice to see statistical evidence that he was probably the worst position-player signing in Brian Cashman’s history.
