Denard Span one of the "Least Intimidating Batters" of the past 5 years?


If you haven't checked out SBNation's group of baseball writers you should. They provide a lot of good, short articles which are often accompanied by a touch of appropriate humor. Jeff Sullivan who wrote this short list of the top ten least intimidating batters, is no exception - his articles are always good. But this one is just not funny!

Who the heck does he think he is lumping Denard Span in with the rest of the (unsuprisingly Twins associated) assbats. Seriously, take a look for yourself and you'll see 4 Twins/former Twins on that list of ten with at least another name who was rumored to be a potential Twin in a couple of the past off-seasons.


I'm not qualified, or capable, of critiquing the statistical methods he is using to create his list, but something seems intuitively wrong when Denard Span is considered the 7th (out of 310) least intimidating batters of the past 5 years.
