In the last post cautioning the position change for Mike Cameron, I neglected to mention that he’ll lose 1 WAR for the position change, but likely recapture some of back in runs saved for his defense as he’d be baselined against other LFers and not CFers. I believe with the way the position adjustments are constructed it would mathematically be a wash (i.e. he’d be a +20 LFer instead of a +10 CFer). Do I completely believe he’ll be a +20 LFer (ranking at or near the top of the league)? Eh probably not, but the 1 WAR decrease I talked about is probably a little overstated.
