Quiz: Who Was More Productive In 2008?

New, 25 comments

Below are listed 31 pairs of players.  Your job is simply to decide if Player A was more valuable by at least ten runs, Player B was more valuable by at least ten runs, or if the two players were equal in production (within five runs).  On your answer sheet, simply put an A, B, or E.

For the record, I'm using Justin's TotalValue ratings, which incorporate park-adjusted linear weights, league-adjusted replacement level, positional adjustments, and combined STATS and BIS zone ratings converted to runs.
