More Info:
  • We've all heard the baseball truism: every team will win 50 and lose 50, but it is what they do with the other 62 that matter. In this quiz, I removed 50 wins from every team, divided the remaining wins by 5, and listed that number of players by WAR. So the Orioles with 108 wins have 12 listed ((108-50)/5) while the White Sox have just one listed ((56-50)/5). Is this the most valuable 150 players from 1970? Maybe, maybe not, but now you understand the quiz.
