The Worst Player in Baseball

Most people are of the consensus that Albert Pujols is the best player in baseball.  He hits for average, power, and is a good fielder.   We are all very fortunate to be able to watch him and will probably be telling our grandkids about him.  But who is the worst player in baseball? 


Out of 89 position players with qualifying at bats this player ranks 87<sup> </sup>in SLG with a .271%, 85 in OBP with a .277%, 88 in OPS with a .548%, and  89 in batting average with a .191%.  The strange thing is, is that this player was actually very good about 7-9 years ago.  From 1999 to 2002 he hit at least 35 home runs and batted .298. But he’s steadily declined since then and had some problems with injuries, very strange.


Currently he makes $9,000,000 for his contributions, actually making him a worse value that Eric Byrnes. So who is the worst player in baseball?  Congratulation Brian Giles!  You make all the fans in San Diego very proud.
