  • Quantum Mechanics Superposition Players :)

    In quantum mechanics, there is a thing called "superposition." The idea is that a particle exists in all possible states simultaneously, until it's actually observed.
    Chone Figgins is kind of like that. Until you decide whether Figgins should play 2B, 3B, OF, CI, MI or UTIL, he's all of those things at once. And according to this thought experiment, if you put him in a box with a kitten, only one of them can come out alive. Or something.

    Chone Figgins, 2B/3B/OF
    There's no question that Figgins is the best of the superposition players.

    Yunel Escobar, 2B/SS/3B
    He was a line drive/ground ball machine last year, and he figures to again hit for a helpful average.

    Ty Wigginton, 1B/2B/3B
    Casey Blake, 1B/3B/OF
    Mark DeRosa, 1B/2B/3B/OF
    From a single bench spot, you get a guy who can fill in at four positions, plus MI, CI and UTIL.

    Other hitters who qualify at three or more roster spots:
    Mark Loretta (1B/2B/SS/3B), Greg Dobbs (1B/3B/OF), Kevin Fransden (2B/SS/OF), Rich Aurilia (1B/2B/SS/3B), Esteban German (2B/3B/OF), Wilson Betemit (1B/SS/3B), Marco Scutaro (2B/SS/3B/ OF), Alfredo Amezaga (2B/SS/3B/OF), Jamey Carroll (2B/SS/3B), Ramon Vazquez (2B/SS/3B), Brendan Ryan (2B/SS/3B), Nick Punto (2B/SS/3B), Chris Gomez (1B/2B/SS/3B), Geoff Blum (2B/SS/3B), Willie Bloomquist (2B/SS/3B/OF), Josh Wilson (2B/SS/3B), Omar Infante (2B/SS/3B/OF), Robb Quinlan (1B/3B/OF), Craig Counsell (2B/SS/3B), Tony Abreu (2B/SS/3B), Miguel Cairo (1B/2B/SS/3B), Jose Castillo (2B/SS/3B), and Alberto Callaspo (2B/SS/3B/OF).

    It's an interesting article!

    What is MI & CI and is UTIL for utility?

      Yes, you have right about UTIL...

      Definition:
      Notable utility players in baseball, capable of playing in most baseball positions
      A utility player is a player who can play several positions but can also bat well.
      Tony Phillips, the first player to start 10 games at five different positions in the same season.

      CI --> Corner Infielder (1st or 3rd baseman)
      MI --> ?

        Huh, Andy Behrens had a very similar thought, Zagi.

        MI is middle-infielder, a 2B or SS.

            Brandon Inge used to be that, then the Tigers made him a 3rd Basemen, and Inge made himself believe that he is an everyday 3rd baseman and now wines about having to be moved around.....sigh

                Probably true for the active players, but Figgins would have a hard time proving he was better than Tony Phillips.
