On the DRaysBay writers slack we like to play the mystery player stat comparison game. Usually these are part of an ongoing argument, where someone is accusing someone else of having a bad take, and is trying to trap them into acknowledging their biases. Most of the time the argument is centered around an old trade. Most of the time it’s between Danny and Darby.

So basically it’s The Hit Show. To get the right feeling, just listen to The Hit Show.

But honestly, you don’t need the context of the argument to enjoy this game. It’s a fun game. So from now on we’ll start popping the mystery player stat lines in here whenever they come up.

Here are four infielders, with their 2020 stats so far.
