    He had the Sox 7th best OPS over a 4 year period before the signing, which included his monster year.

    He just was not as good as many felt he was, and then the whole age and player type argument screamed, "STAY AWAY!"

    Agree

    But Ellsbury has only 4 seasons over 3WAR, Gardner has 7. Including the last 5

    Gardner had 2.6 fWAR in 2015 and 2.4 fWAR in 2016.

    Not bad seasons, but also not over 3 fWAR. ..

    The dreaded fWAR-bWAR discrepancy strikes again!

    Cue Dewey with the condemnations of WAR.

    Well if people would just stick with fWAR, we wouldn't have to worry about it.

    I usually use bWAR, still the last few seasons have a big gap in performance

    You've never heard of GWAR? They are the greatest interplanetary warrior heavy metal band from Richmond, VA. You need to go on youtube. They are right up your alley.

    If you want, just watch it with the sound off.

    If they are heavy metal, they are FAR, VERY FAR, from right up my alley.
