Look at Justice using WAR!

Richard Justice has a really good post about Hunter Pence's development, and whether he will ever be an elite player:

He'll turn 28 shortly after Opening Day, and there's not a single number that indicates he's even close to being a special player. Solid player? Yes. Contributor to a winning team? Absolutely. Star? No.

Well done, Justice, well done.

Anybody notice that Michael Bourn ranked 17th in the NL in WAR in the bb-ref list he linked to? I had no idea. Led the league in defensive WAR points- Barmes was pretty high in that column himself.
