I've got to say that linear weights blows a lot of the stuff James was doing out of the water.
how could a guy who won the Triple Crown not be the best hitter in the league?
In 1992, Barry Bonds hit .311/34/103. He had a 204 OPS+ and 8.2 oWAR. Gary Sheffield didn't win the TC, but he was in the hunt all year. He finished with a .330/33/100 slash line, winning the batting title, and missing the TC by 2 HR and 9 RBI. He had a 168 OPS+ and a 6.8 oWAR. 2 more HR and 9 more RBI would not have gotten him close to Bonds.
1.4 WAR? What is that, @ 14 runs? When you're hitting that many home runs, how accurate are the runs estimates?
