2.4 WAR

1.5 WAR

.8 WAR that was bitten because he shouldn't be OFer

For a team that really sucks, this is a really bad move

my point exactly.

DD plays average to above average 3b/2b. He's terrible in the OF which is why he's not mid 1s WAR this year

Youre severely overrating his ability at 2b/3b.  He might be average there, but he is in no way above average and he has not graded out positively at any position in his career according to fangraphs.  He is the perfect DH/platoon guy for an AL team like oakland, but for a team like us given his arbitration status he might just be the type of player who had no value across the league when you look at what you will be able to get 1b/corner OF guys for again this offseason.

oic DD was due $4.8m. this is a rays move without rays foresight

The rays have won over 90 games 6 times since 2008, perhaps we should be making more rays moves as a small market team.

That 15 mil next year is not helping.

and the only reason prado is still around is because his contract is enormous and unmovable and he's a good veteran to have around young guys.

m8 check his def WAR on Fangraphs when he was an IFer - the same Fangraphs that a lot of mlb front offices uses. He WAS above average at IF in 2016 and slightly below avg in 2017 in IF. He was horrible in the OF.
