With the caveat that I dont remember anyone saying anything quite that that extreme (as above posters have alluded to. And as someone who still cant believe the trade happened (or, at least, cant believe the return at this point) and would've overpaid Mookie...but isnt the bolded statement somewhat accurate? I get it's only one stat but per WAR:So painful. It's a disgrace he's not still here.
And to think of all the posters here who assured me that his best days were well behind him...
2018 - 10.4
2016 - 9.5
2019 - 7.3
2022 - 6.4 (maybe he gets up to 6.6ish over last 22 games?)
2020 - 3.6 but in only 55 games and maybe WAR wise he gets to 2016 #s.
His 3 best years in Boston average to a 9.16 WAR. If you give him what he was on pace for in 2020 (9.5 over 145 games), and give him 6.7 for this year, his 3 years in LA average average 6.8 WAR.
