The one thing that I don't like about WAR is that fielding is not taken into account for catchers. Therefore Mauer gets an automatic "0" in that category. I think most would agree he was the most valuable player in baseball last year. And Bdogrox2: Just because you don't like the rankings, does not mean they are crap. Just so you know A-Rod came in at 44th with a WAR of 4.4 (remember this is a counting stat, not a rate stat, so the time A-Rod missed he accounted for a 0 WAR which hurt him) and Sabathia came in at 21st with a 6.0 so just off the list.

Zobrist better than Pujols? HA!

1.) It doesn't measure who is better. It measures who performed better that year. Zobrist is higher because he plays positions that get a better positional adjustment. 2.) Catchers get a bigger bonus to make up for the lack of fielding runs.
