His career WAR is actually -1.9, I was just using accounting format to help distinguish from the dashes I was using to break up the columns.

Given that he only played in 91 career games and had 257 career PA, racking up nearly -2 in WAR is a pretty impressive display of badness. That would translate into roughly a -4.5 WAR over the course of a full season and generally speaking, 4-5 WAR (in the positive direction) is reserved for All-Star caliber players.

Moral of the story: Andy Gonzalez sucks
