    Career WAR Arc

    This is an awesome way to visualize career value in context.


    It really helps you get a good idea of how amazing Pujols has been. I wonder how Larkin's plot would look.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Yeah, cool stuff. I love the weekly "Graph of the week" thing they're doing.

    Did you see those "SABR-cards" as part of last week's series?

    It's so weird seeing those last several seasons for Bonds. Freak of human (growth) nature.

    Not at all, the last bump in the chart is head size related. He just got so much smarter...

    Also, Pujols is about to decline? I like it.

    I like how the latter years of Bonds' career are denoted as "The LOL Zone" on the last graph. Good stuff.
