Nap Lajoie would probably be proud of second baseman Jason Kipnis’ contribution to the current iteration of the Cleveland Indians. But while Kipnis has amassed a very impressive 20.4 wins above replacement in six seasons with the Tribe, Lajoie accumulated 42.4 wins above replacement (WAR) in his first half dozen years.

INDIAN ALL-TIME ROSTER BY WAR

Nap Lajoie leads Cleveland Indians all-time roster by WAR

Lajoie played second base for a total of 13 seasons in Cleveland starting in 1902, and leads the franchise’s all-time roster by WAR with 80.0. The team’s other biggest contributions came from outfielder Tris Speaker (74.2) and pitcher Bob Feller (65.2).

Feller, a fireballer from Van Meter, Iowa, starred for the Indians when they last won the World Series in 1948.
