I was waiting for tec.
The 2nd line BL writes is "There are plenty of issues with WAR." So, you're wrong. This guy writes an entire article ripping WAR when he clearly doesn't have a grasp of what it means.
Using A SINGLE NUMBER to attempt to quantify a player's season, or a player's career, or to compare two players, is ridiculous.
Yes, WAR has it's flaws, and shouldn't be the only stat anyone ever looks that. Even BL hasn't denied that. But if you were to look at just one stat, WAR is one of the better ones, arguably the best, to look at. This moron wrote a story without considering the WAR is cumulative. WHY IS YAZ SO MUCH BETTER THAN DIMAGGIO?!? FLAWED!!! Maybe it's because Yaz played literally twice as many games.
You're being argumentative for the sake of being argumentative.
