    about halfway through Rick Ankiel's The Phenomenon. A notch or two above typical baseball books.

    A discussion on WAR

    i was wrong about this part. when separating total WAR into the offensive and defensive subcomponents, there actually IS an adjustment for both parts. and that is likely the chief explanation for why Cal Ripken's 1991 season rates so much higher than Jim Rice's 1978 season, even on oWAR.

    A discussion on WAR

    well, 15 years can be very important, especially if we're talking about, say 2000 vs 2015. There was about a 20% difference in runs scored. Ballpark DOES matter, too (that's what fangraphs means when they say it's park-neutral). So, say Coors Field vs. Petco makes a huge difference. Defensive position does not matter when it comes to offensive WAR.

    this might have been a mistake on my part. note to self: age before position scarcity

    I was surprised that Refsnyder went undrafted. Crowded roster in Cleveland, to be sure, but intriguing skills. Not that long ago that he was a higher ranked prospect than Gary Sanchez
