I don't know if anyone has done this yet, I looked back and hadn't seen any analysis on this.

If you look at the Runs Created statistic, which is commonly known as one of the best indicators of the impact of a player. For those that don't know, Runs Created is OBPxTotal Bases. You can actually see the huge impact that Frank and Maggs have on this team.

The White Sox scored 865 runs this season and gave up 831. An average of 5.3 r/g. If you look at the career statistics for Frank and Maggs you will see that Frank has a career RC/Season of 111, and Maggs has a career 91 RC/season. That is 212 runs created for the average season when you combine Frank and Maggs.

Now look at Timo, Gload, Everett, and Borchard. Respectively their RC this season were 38, 41, 23, and 13. That adds up to 115. A difference between Frank and Maggs and those 4 are 97 runs created. While it is not right to say that you can just add those 97 runs to the total amount for the season you can probably say that it would be closer to 50-55 extra runs scored for the season.

Those 55 or so runs would make a big difference in the record. The White Sox were 40-38 in games with a run differential of 1 or 2. I guess it is kind of fun, or maybe morbid to look back at this season and think what might have been had we been at full strength.
