How do those numbers compare with corresponding numbers for other MLB teams? What parameters were used in the compilation of those numbers?

And, of course, the name is Dipoto with a lower-case p.

I lowered the minimum PAs to 100 and we have even more bundles of joy.

Is it sad that I liked Tim Lopes lol :lol:
Hey, at least he has a higher career OPS than Jarred Kelenic!

Seattle is the 12th largest media market. The Tampa St. Pete area is the the 13th largest. Despite having a FAR lower payroll and using the identical 2016-2023 players with 100+ PA the Mariners worst 24 players put up -7.9 WAR and the Rays 24 worst put up -2.8.

Here is a fun one. Astros worst 24 players with 100+ PAs accounted for +4.1 WAR. 12 WAR MORE than Jerry's worst 24.

Good stuff!

His failures have been worse than most GM's imo.

And the critical factor is that most other GM's that underperformed like Dipoto haven't made it into their 9th year with the team.

Same argument as when we complain that Dipoto has spent like $30M per WAR on all of his failures. The apologists say, "Well other teams have their failures also..."

The difference of course is the other underperformers likely all got fired, meanwhile Dipoto got a promotion and is going into his 9th season.

Yep, yet we still have people defending him and not realizing the capital P in his name stands for POS. lol

He's not an under performer is he if he's generating record profits

Most of us aren't fondling the owners ballsacs so we measure success with winning in the playoffs, which Dipoto has failed miserably at.
