In the decade of the 1970s, Joe Morgan lead all of baseball in Win Shares with 315. Johnny Bench was third with 263. Sandwiched in between was Pete Rose with 288. Of other Reds mentioned, Tom Seaver ranked 11th with 230, Tony Perez ranked 20th with 217 and Ken Griffey 119th with 117.
But for most people what do win shares mean? The average fan doesn't care for any of that Bill James jazz.
