    He's right around Chas, Grisham and Bellinger for fWAR.
    Not a great center fielder but not bad enough to be easily upgraded.

    If they had just traded Dubon to the Mariners....it would be 5 out of 6. :)

    I sure hope Mancini breaks out this postseason or Jayden Murray becomes something; Siri had a lot of value.

    Nah, Siri won't amount to much at all in the years to come. He may float around a bit but definitely nothing special.

    Other than being arguably the best defensive CF in baseball, he's nothing special at all.

    He is serviceable. Much like Adam Everett, half his game is great and the other half...not so much. Occasional pop at the plate like Maldonado but consistently below average.

    After the trade, he hit better and his fielding fell to average.

    Arguably is definitely the key word in that sentence.

    Siri did tie an all time playoff record today. Five strike outs.

    Hernandez, Springer and Siri... gone!

    Correa never made it

    Raley, if you want to count him... gone!

    Straw and Cole left... and Marwin but not sure he plays much anyhow

    Toro not good enough to include

    Why would you stoke the karma bear like that with Toro? He already plays well above his numbers against us haha.

    Basing solely off of this years numbers and he didn't play in the Wild Card series.

    Plus, karma is not real. Life manufactures itself based on your brain, but has no control over things you aren't part of. I could say I guarantee Toro doesn't get a hit against us and if he does or not has nothing to do with what I said.

    Which just shows the limitation of WAR. Straw has been terrible this season.

    Ask Billy Hamilton. At some point you have to be able to get on base, unless you pitch or catch.
