For those that have been beating the Mike Cameron drum as a left field option, remember that when you quote his WAR value, it’ll decrease by one when you consider the postion adjustment from CF to LF (from ~+2.5 to ~-7.5).  Clearly some of that would be mitigated if he plays CF vs. LHP, and I’m not saying he wouldn’t be an ok option at the right price, just be wary if you think he can post ~4 WAR moving forward.


I’m still working up the similarity score stuff, I have RHP pretty well done, just have to put it into a coherent post.  and I’m also in the process of  finishing up the regressed UZR stuff for the rest of the positions.  Whenever I get them both done I’ll also make the spreadsheets available in Google docs or something like that.
