    Looking back at underrated players

    Sometimes WAR sucks when looking at older players. I liked Spiezio growing up, but man he sucked was nothing special.

    Renteria was definitely the better player. OCAB was great when he was here though.

    Wow 60 war and I've never even heard of him.

    WAR takes a lot more into account than just errors. He was a horrible defender for an outfielder.

    Never heard of him but 97 stolen bases is impressive. Career 18 WAR. Hard to believe someone with that speed could be -9 defense war in his career.

    52.6 baseball reference WAR. Pretty solid.

    Won 6 gold gloves but had -3 career DWAR. Sounds overrated to me.

    Another player that if he was an average defender would be in the hall of fame. He had -11 war on defense for his career.

    Lofton retired too because nobody would give him a contract. He had 2.7 WAR his final season as a part time player.

    Cameron is good. 46 WAR and only 1 all star game. Brett Gardner has over 40 WAR and only one all star game as well.

    Mayer was an MVP and 6 time all star. Not sure he was underrated.

    Crazy thing with Snow is I always heard he was a good defender, but he was -10.8 Dwar for his career. Not even average.
  14. I always enjoy seeing the similar players page on Baseball Reference. Now that WAR exists, who are some players that you now realize were underrated because of their high career WAR totals. I'm going with Brian Giles. I knew he was a good player, but he had over 50 career war, and he was an atrocious defender. If he was a slightly above average defender we might be saying HOF player Brian Giles. Who can you guys think of?

    Yep, there is a warrant for his arrest.
