My point is that when you look at offensive war - something that is innately more reliable - Choo proved to be nearly twice the player in 2013 that Bruce was.
Choo 6.3 wins above replacement (61 runs above replacement)
Bruce 3.3 wins above replacement (32 runs above replacement)
Among position players(2008~2013)
“We use the term 'good fit' a lot when we look at players to add, but in this case, it was the perfect fit," general manager Jon Daniels said. "His skill set, his personality and his personal goals line up with ours and what our club needed. He's been one of the most productive offensive players in the game. I'm not sure the casual fan realizes that. But he creates run-scoring opportunities for himself and others."
