He followed that up with saying that I shouldn't pro-rate WAR by season, that accumulated WAR over the length of a career was more important.
By that logic, a guy who averages a WAR or 2 over a 25 year career would slightly more valuable than a guy who averages a WAR of 4.9 over an 10 year career.
Because more is better.
Then compare that to Beltre's.
And Chase Utley's.
Yeah, you know what a big proponent I am of that.
Except when it doesn't back up his case. Then, it's not all that important.
Uh, I'm not the one constantly moving the goal posts. I tend to use the same group of stats every time I look at a player. Triple slash rates, OPS+, WAR, and HR/HIT/net SB totals. Sometimes, depending on the years and position the player played defensive stats.
It's retarded for you to argue player A based on an incorrect application of WAR and then, when it's pointed out that you're using it wrong, turn around and say, "well, I don't like WAR anyway so that doesn't matter." You argue like a child.
