Last season Trout and Stanton had practically the same numbers yet Trout's WAR was 7.9 and Stanton's was 6.5. I thought the difference was defense but the metrics don't even like Trout's defense. I have no idea how that stat is determined.

Without looking at numbers, I'd say base running.

That's what I thought too. Trout only had 3 more steals than Giancarlo, so it has to be some metric I don't really know about.

That team is trash. I really didn't think Cruz would hit like that in Safeco though. Mad impressed.

I wonder how good ARod would have to be to get mvp. He'd have to hit 310 40+ to even get into top 3 IMO. laugh.gif he'd have to be so much better than everyone else

I hate to be that guy, but Koufax is not one of the top 4 greatest living players. Anyone tried doing the franchise 4 for the Braves? Along with my Giants they have the hardest 4 easily.

ARod hit 38 homers and .358 as a rookie at 20 years old.....you think Nomar was better? ARod would go on to be the only 40/40 shortstop just a few years later. Nomar may have the edge over Jeter (and it doesn't matter because longevity can't be ignored) for a few seasons, there is no argument for him over ARod....plus Fenway is a bandbox.

I love Adam Jones. Extremely underrated player who does everything well. His defense was a bit overrated for sometime but that's mostly caught up with the rest of his game. His only problem is he refuses to take walks. If he did the metric community would be head over heels for him like the rest of the baseball world is. Altuve is a stud too. Along with Trout he has to be the funnest guy in baseball to watch. Once Correa gets called up I'll be watching a lot of Houston. Correa, Springer, Altuve, Cris Carter (when he's hot)....that team is going to be a joy. They might turn Houston back into a baseball town.

You know many critics at one point thought Alex might have been the best baseball player of all time. Not even the best SS, just the best baseball player. He was unanimously considered the best SS we've seen this generation since like Honus Wagner or some ****. Saying Nomar was better is a joke and disrespectful to any baseball fan.

As for Derek, he wasn't better. He was on steroids and was hitting the long ball. Doesn't make him better. Nomar was good but he had a short career (due to the juice) breaking down his body.

He's have to hit. 400/40/150... And ever other player in the league would have to contract the Black Death and die...

I admittedly can't say a good word about Arod laugh.gif... But let's just say Nomar was the better teammate laugh.gif...
