Kurt Suzuki continues reign as worst hitter in the AL in latest computer rankings

Here at Bias Free Sports, we know that anyone can look at Josh Hamilton or Justin Verlander or Craig Kimbrel and say “those guys are the best at what they do.”  We instead like to take a peek at some of the worst MLB has to offer, and this week Kurt Suzuki of the Oakland A’s continues to have a stranglehold on the title of Worst of the Worst in the American League, while Brandon Crawford of the Giants inherits the mantle as Worst of the Worst in the National League (taking over from Clint Barmes, who was so bad that he can’t even play in Pittsburgh).  To see all the ratings for players doing much better than these guys, go to Bias Free Sports.
