It's cool that you are talking about that, but I don't like WAR as a statistic. I'm not that into the "advanced metrcs", but WAR is one of the ones I like least.

I really do appreciate WAR because it cuts across a whole series of factors and variables to provide a metric for comparison. It certainly isn't perfect, but I think it largely bears out how valuable certain players are relative to the rest of their league.
