If only the US government provided information about weather for free to the citizens, so that we could check if temperatures were significantly above average for this time of the year in most MLB cities (hint: they were).
ML WAR leader? Barry Zito of course with 1.2. If he stops now this will be his best season since 2010.
According to B-R, Zito is at 0.8.

In 2010/2011, the Phillies, who rely on and are proud of the philosophy that they are a scouting/development, not numbers, organization, had Moss, Ryan Voglesong and Jason Grilli in AAA and released all three.
