    I don't think we're allowed to talk about that.

    It appears that the logs do show if you lock a thread, so at best, I'd say the evidence provided was inconclusive.

    Only thing I can think of is that thread defaulted to locked because I posted from my phone.

    Chris Carter designated for assignment by the Brewers. Dude hit 41 homers last year.

    Yes. This has to be the first time the league leader in home runs with controllable years left has gotten sent down. At least pretend you want to keep him and get something for him.

    41 HRs, 0.9 WAR. That's some shitty value.

    Cause he can't field for shit. Has to be worth something to an AL team.

    WAR - what is it good for?

    A: Not 1Bs

    :wrong:

    His dWAR is slightly ahead of Abreu, but his oWAR is just over half of his.

    Has a lot more to do with his 32% K rate.

    And just as a note, I'm not disagreeing that he's a bad fielder. He is. But that isn't the cause for a horrible WAR.

    The trouble with Carter is that he has never managed to reach base consistently. He also led the National League with 206 strikeouts last year. Then there’s the fact that he’s rather limited in the field. Carter’s days in the outfield are probably numbered, and he drew negative metrics last year at first.

    OK so now according to WAR a guy that hit 41 homers and 98 rbi is rendered useless?

    I'm not defending home boy or saying he's a good player. Just saying this has to be the first time the league leader in home runs with controllable years left has been let go.

    Position factors into dWAR so having a negative dWAR as a 1B isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just means 1B is one of the least valued positions on the field. Guys like Helton and Mattingly have negative dWARs for their career and they have multiple gold gloves. Not sure why the Brewers didn't at least try and trade him for something.

    He's not useless, the problem is that his value is suppressed by WAR standard by playing a less valuable position.

    Let's look at a comparison with a player with incredibly similar offensive production this season. Carter is the top line.

    The defensive difference is the biggest thing separating them, as offensively they're damn near equals. And Player 2 had a bad defensive year by his standards. Player 2 is a better base runner as well, which helps a tad.

    Player 2 is Todd Frazier

    That's kind of interesting with the extra off days. Makes a lot of sense, and probably only at the expense of what is already an interminable spring training.

    This time it no longer counts. Glad they dumped that bs rule. Most wins gets home field adv. Didn't see anywhere how a record tie is sorted out
