      Wonder which formula they’ll use..or will they make their own up?

      This is the company that put a squirrel on a baseball card and superimposed Mickey Mantle in the dugout of a Derek Jeter card, so I guess they’ll try anything.

      2 things that I hate about WAR :
      1) many people do not realize that it is a counting stat. They just compare 2 players and the better one has the higher WAR.
      2) everyone assumes that this is the be all end all stat. It is flawed, like every other stat.

      Still not worse than some of their airbrushed jobs back in the day.
