Hamilton's first 4 years won't beat that? I guess we'll see.
I'm not sure I'm seeing your point. Fact remains WAR is a subjective, arbitrarily invented formula which I find to be horse crap and not representative of the real world. But then again, I've actually seen baseball games and played a bit so I probably don't know what I'm talking about.
