Two days in a row. That’s what we call a streak people. Today’s WAR graph is actually the first one I ever put into Fangraphs’ feature, and I can’t believe I didn’t lead off with it yesterday, but what are you going to do?
I usually like to put four players in one graph, but today it is a straight comparison between the Twins two most recent centerfielders. For all the Twins fans upset over Torii Hunter leaving, just know that we have a pretty good replacement in Denard Span. It is true that Hunter has three seasons better than Span’s best one, but assuming Span has a good 27-29 stretch, which I think he will, Span will probably end up being the more productive Twin.
