    When Alex Rodriguez went down with a broken bone in his hand Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, among the first potential replacements that sprung to mind was former Yankees’ utility man Eduardo Nunez.

    Lindall Dale McDaniel pitched for twenty-two years in the major leagues from 1955 to 1975. His career spanned the golden era of the Fifties, the pitching era of the Sixties and into the disco days of the Seventies. He had a rubber arm and made 987 appearances in the majors spanning 2139+ innings for five different teams. He is fifteenth on the all time list in appearances.

    Bryce Harper was having a better season than Adam Jones, Dustin Pedroia, and an assortment of other great players when he was Moncada's age. 30 out of

    you're right in that a 5 WAR player may not be worth exactly 5 wins to a team-- could in fact be worth 1 win or 10 wins, but when you apply the same benchmark

    Re: Yoan Moncada Thread

    Most of Haper's WAR value comes on the offensive side, not with the glove, so that's not really much of a complaint. And no, batting average and RBIs
