WAR, a Cautionary Tale

Jeremy Greenhouse, over at The Hardball Times, just wrote an excellent caveat for the usage of Fangraph's WAR (wins above replacement), a statistical metric we are very fond of here at Cubs Stats. Check it out!

Also, Milton Bradley trade rumors are swirling around today. The high hubbub frequency is mostly due to the GM Meetings, which are taking place in Chicago right now. Today I've heard rumors (from non-Cub fan sources) of Bradley being wanted in Texas, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and San Diego or a possible component of a three way trade between Toronto and the Mets (this was later debunked). Nonetheless, it seems the league is certainly ready to find a new home for MB.
