    Don't hold your breathe, he has none.

    He still think teams don't use sabermetrics in their evaluations of players nevermind anything else.

    I understand the (unfunny) joke. I'm asking you to support your opinion of WAR.
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    Honestly it really depends on what your fighting for. For example the right to freedom is certainly worth WAR. However I think simply fighting over differences such as religion is silly and completely fruitless.

    Or the guy could answer instead of being a troll. Since trolling is cool when people are trying to have a normal discussion.

    Or some posters can just not be so stuck up.

    Trolling or not it was a harmless post that the second poster used to derail the thread even more.

    But let's ***** about that post and not the ones following it that were off-topic, as well.

    I wasn't actually trying to troll at all (just lighten up a pretty dry thread) but since it is important to not stray whatsoever from the topic at hand I do find it a meaningful stat. Sorry but how many threads and posts are needed to say that this is a good stat to use in your evaluations of players?

    WAR is used by major league teams to evaluate players, i would have to believe that gives it some obvious merit even if IABF feels otherwise.

    It's like anything else, though it needs to be taken in context and used along with many other stats to evaluate the player as a whole.

    I was trying to get a real answer to the question and he kept trolling.

    Are you not doing the same thing I did by responding to me?

    I love how many idiots that don't understand sabermetrics just say they are wrong.

    Just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it's wrong. Sabermetrics are awesome, end of story.
