    If anything, the Trout vs. Miggy debates focused heavily on the fact that Cabrera was and still is one of the worst fielders and worst base-runners in the game.

    His defense was atrocious, almost...

    It depends on what you mean by "inferior WAR."

    Wins-Above-Replacement is only significant to within one half (0.5) of a Win.

    My go to discussion in the Yankee's forum is Gardner vs. Ellsbury.

    You have never once demonstrated how those defensive metrics are flawed.

    You have never once explained how the inclusion of these apparently "flawed" metrics into the WAR formulas increases...

    Every time this conversation comes up the refrain from particular posters is always the same:

    We are told there are legitimate issues with WAR that undermine it at a fundamental level.

    Statistics measure rather specific items, so the question as to how good something like WAR is comes down to what it is you are attempting to measure.

    As a single metric for immediate comparison...

    To my knowledge Carlos Gomez is not on the trade market.

    Carlos Gonzalez on the other hand has been out there in rumors for a while and would not be worth a trade.

    There would be absolutely no point in trading for CarGo at the moment.

    Rather see if the OF prospects can produce a solid MLBer over the next two seasons.

    The issue, which I think most of us grasp, is that the Yankees have built a financial model predicated on always making the play-offs.

    When Cano left the team and Arod served his suspension the...

    Pointless semantic argument.

    The Cubs intelligently moved aging contracts in exchange for solid prospect talent which their minors system continued to develop and the result is one of the most...

    And how has that been working out for the last half decade?

    How do you see that working out with this team over the next 2-3?

    Apparently the allure of playing for a clear championship contender with a man like Epstein at the helm is greater than the sparkle on $200MM.

    Adam Warren grew on me over the years. I heavily disliked the 2009-2013 iteration but when he put it together in 2014 he became a solid piece for the team.

    Warren is solid 2.0-2.5 fWAR starter if...

    Cashman is starting to seriously piss me off. We gave up too much for Castro and now he is seriously thinking about trading Miller too?

    Miller is an elite, left-handed, closer, on a solid...

    Package Gardner & Judge and one of the catchers to get a solid pitcher.

    And then blow up the Jason Heyward sweepstakes and get him in pinstripes.

    I really see no problem with giving Shark 5/$90MM. He is likely going to miss the valuation on that contract, but it should not be too bad, and in the immediate future (2016-2017) he should be a...

    Interesting that you would say that; Cameron's piece on FG today pointed out that, as a pitcher Greinke is actually only worth ~$150MM over six-years.

    But if you factor in his glove and bat (cuz,...
