All Time (2002 and later) WAR Rays Team

New, comments

Fangraphs calculates WAR going back to 2002. I thought it worth a look to see how the all-time Rays WAR team would look.

The criteria:

-We are isolating individual seasons

-Players are only eligible for their primary position for that season

-Pitchers and relievers can only be credited for their best season as a Ray

-2009 obviously does not have final #'s. It will be fun to watch Bartlett pull ahead/fall behind Lugo.

 

On to the roster:
