Baseball Musings: Win Shares

I know Bill James has said that win shares are supposed to be applied retrospectively, but anyway… Gary Sheffield ranks second in the majors, first in the NL, with 12 WS so far. Rafael Furcal ranks fourth and third with 11.7. And John Smoltz ranks sixth and fourth, and as the highest pitcher, with 10.9. With Austin Kearns between Sheff and Furcal, this series includes the top four players in the NL. And Marcus Giles is tenth/seventh with 10.
