Either way. Gia has an 855 ERA +. Though it means little in 19 IP.

Hopefully Brett Lawrie will be up to the big show soon and Rivera will not be getting many AB. What a bust! But then again the Vernon Wells' contract is gone.

Neil, having current-season data for WAR will be timely and will shape discussions in here. The site is continually improving for hard-core stat geeks and baseball enthusiasts.

A detailed explanation doesn't exist, at least not in one place. The framework is laid out in various posts by Sean Smith/AROM/Rally and Tango on different sites.

I am not sure what park factors are used...I assume it is the multi-year factors on this site.

Sorry for the non-answer. But if you have other questions about it, people here can try to answer them. Some details are beyond us however.
