Believe it or not, there was a time I scoffed at stats such as wOBA and wRC+. Wanted no part of them. Then it hit me…….don’t get old Pugs! Embrace these new useful tools with the gusto of a little schoolgirl opening up a package of LOL goodies, and you’ll stay young forever and ever. So now give me a heeping portion of BQR-S, IR-A, IR-A%, LD% and SIERA…..and I’m a happy camper!>
Also in the stats I posted our Center Fielders are 6th in WAR? I would imagine Fowler has played the most innings out there to date. This is why I don’t pay attention to WAR. My eyes tell me that Bader is an exceptional fielder, and that Fowler is a below average right fielder, much less Center Fielder.
