This is what I mean about WAR being an easily manipulated stat.Trout's Wins Above Replacement (WAR), the overall measure of quality that includes all aspects of the game, was 10 this year, the best in the majors, according to Fangraphs.com. Cabrera's WAR was 7.1. The Angels' total team WAR, encompassing all players, was 37.4. Detroit's was 21.1.
So, Cabrera contributed 33.6% of his team's total value, Trout 26.7%.
