Searching the linked article for the word "WAR" yields two results on the page: one talking about Jean Segura and the first three letters of the word "warm" under Jose Fernandez.
The word "ERA" is used 6 times.
UZR, wRC, a "slash line", home runs, OBP, FIP, walk rate, ERA- are peppered throughout. In other words, quite a mix of traditional and "advanced" statistics.
I'm not sure what WAR has to do with it. It certainly had nothing to do with picking Todd Frazier.
Just an embarrassing article, really too many issues to discuss, imo.
I disagree. I think there's a lot to discuss for those interested in discussion.
