    Halfway point, halfway house

    Right around the halfway point in the season (just two games shy, actually), I thought it would be interesting to see who the most mediocre players in the National League have been. What's scary is that if you put together this halfway house of inept players, the Reds are still over .500 despite making up large portions of the roster.

    Here is what the lineup would be of the most (un)productive players by position in the league this year. I'm using only players that have acquired at least 100 at-bats to this point in the season and using base runs as the runs created (per 600 plate appearances) figure.

    Least Productive Players by Position (Min: 100 AB)
    POS TM PLAYER RC/600

    C WAS Wil Nieves 35
    MIL Jason Kendall 42

    1B ARI Chad Tracy 57
    SFO Travis Ishikawa 69

    2B CHC Aaron Miles 35
    SDP Edgar Gonzalez 49

    SS CIN Alex Gonzalez 40
    SFO Emmanuel Burris 44

    3B CIN Adam Rosales 37
    FLA Wes Helms 45

    LF ARI Eric Byrnes 52
    NYM Fernando Tatis 56

    CF MIL Jody Gerut 45
    CIN Willy Taveras 48

    RF SDP Brian Giles 41
    WAS Austin Kearns 48

    Also meant to add, though he does not yet qualify for this list (as he has only 73 at-bats), Paul Janish is actually a run worse than Alex Gonzalez over 600 plate appearances. He is on pace for 39 runs created.
