Posted by MikeT23 on 12/4/2013 2:16:00 PM (view original):WAR math??? You mean rounding?
Posted by bad_luck on 12/4/2013 2:10:00 PM (view original):22 OPS+ is less than 30%. Does WAR math and OPS+ math work differently?
Posted by MikeT23 on 12/4/2013 2:02:00 PM (view original):22 points of career OPS+ over 9000 plate appearances is a massive difference.
Posted by bad_luck on 12/4/2013 1:56:00 PM (view original):IF if were possible for you to RETAIN anything, and I don't think it is, you'd have seen that I said EM was a more effective hitter and that 22 less outs per season is better. MASSIVELY better is dipshit-level retarded.
Posted by MikeT23 on 12/4/2013 1:49:00 PM (view original):How about my career OPS+ is 41st ALL TIME, I'm massively better offensively than a guy whose OPS+ is 236th all time?
If I'm starting a season and telling two guys "You have 700 PA. Do something with them', I'm not interested, come contract time with a DH saying "I got 21 more walks, one more hit, 6 more doubles and two more homers. I deserve a MASSIVE raise over the CF who only got three more triples than me!!!!"
It's hilarious that you denied ever saying they were comparable offensive players for several posts before giving up and diving head first into that stupidity.
Which is what I think you're claiming.
Using your WAR math, where a 30% difference is "basically the same", don't you think they're comparable?
Like saying a 7.4 WAR player is the same as a 7.1 WAR player? What's 30% have to do with it?
You keep a catalog of discussions. I don't. Go look it up. You kept saying this guy and that guy were essentially the same player despite a 30% difference in their WAR.
In every other aspect of life, 30% is a lot. Not so, apparently, with WAR.
