    Parra has a WAR of 3.8, Jay Bruce is at 2.5....which begs the question, WAR, WAR, what is it good for?

    Have to be careful with WAR.

    Sometimes WAR includes running and defense. I've also seen it for offense only.

    Fangraphs WAR calculation has Jay Bruce -1.2 for baserunning.

    That number is figured too strongly then.....so if he was a good baserunner he'd be we'll above Parra?

    Base running shouldn't be that big of a difference.

    Cozart has made much better contact lately -- just needs to control the zone better
