The table below shows, for each of the 25, their plate appearances and WAR, oWAR and dWAR as calculated by Baseball-Reference and their wOBA and UZR/150 as calculated by FanGraphs (Baseball-Reference reminds that oWAR plus dWAR does not equal WAR).

By WAR, Erik Kratz was the sixth-best non-pitcher on the team for the Phillies in 2012. That there is a problem, cause he’s a 32-year-old backup catcher who got 157 plate appearances for the year.

The Phillies had three hitters with a WAR for the year of 2.0 or better. In 2011 they had five (Victorino 5.2, Utley 3.7, Ruiz 2.6, Rollins 2.4 and Pence 2.2). Pence’s 2.2 came despite getting just 236 plate appearances with the team.

Finally, the -1.2 WAR for Howard is a little problematic. Over the last three seasons, the Phillies have paid Howard about $59 million to put up WARs of 1.1 (’10), 0.9 (’11) and -1.2 (’12). He has hit 256/339/483 in 1,556 plate appearances over those three seasons.

I guess we can always hold out hope that WAR is hugely flawed and doesn’t mean anything. Fingers crossed.
