Voit has had 3.5 fWAR since the trade!

Yeah let’s ignore Voit helping Yanks get into the playoffs last year...
He wasn't going to get regular PT in St. Louis. The only reason the super smart Yankees got him was that they were so ravaged by injury they needed a guy. He's made the most of it. It wasn't a bad trade then nor now.

I’m talking about the Tweet. You know it’s off base to just compare 2019 value only.

What's his wRC+ when he's playing out of position though?

Knew you’d say that and once again context is ignored.

C trolling effort.

Yes, way off base to compare one season of a player to another player in the same season.

Trade comparisons should be value since trade to moment contract control is up

Translation: I cited Tommy Edman's wRC+ as a RF rather than his overall production, got called out on it, and rather than simply saying "play the hot hand I guess even though it goes against every fiber of my being and all of my statistically driven posts" I doubled down on it as if it were meaningful.

Do you disagree about trade comparison or no?

That’s ridiculous. There can’t be just one way to compare players involved in a trade. You are making a huge deal about a simple tweet, the point of which was clearly that Gallegos is doing awesome and providing a lot value, despite just being a reliever. The tweet doesn’t even try to disparage Voit.

Or whether they, you know, made the team better.
