Holy cow, I would have completely missed this if a friend hadn't casually mentioned it yesterday afternoon.

I'm also intrigued that Matt Kemp now led Ryan Braun by only .1 WAR last year... that's a HUGE difference from what the old calculation did... which I believe had them separated by 2.5 WAR.
I wonder how it will impact a couple of things I've written about recently:
THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2012 Willie Mays and NL CF WAR Fielding Runs 1951-1968
War On WAR.
Next time you hear someone on TV mention WAR ask yourself whether that person has any idea what the heck he/she is talking about.
Baseball-Reference made a change later in the day:
WAR 2.01: Renaming ndWAR to afWAR
Yeah, right. I'll make a point to remember that next time ndWAR comes up.
