  1. Definitely voting for Todd Helton. His total WAR and peak are both better than Harmon Killebrew's and I'm going to give any tiebreak to Coors players because I think they get unfairly knocked down for their home park even though WAR adjusts for park and it has to be really hard to switch elevation every damn week.

    I was on the fence about Pettitte but his peak was meh and his total WAR is not even as good as Johan's.

    I'm still on the fence with Berkman, as he's 20th in JAWS at his position. But I'm more inclined to vote for Jose Cruz, who is 21st and seemed more well-rounded. And I'm not not excited about him either.

    1. I was on the fence about Pettitte but his peak was meh and his total WAR is not even as good as Johan's.

      His peak was very limited but his career WAR easily exceeds Johan's.

      Player rWAR fWAR
      Andy Pettitte 60.6 68.0
      Johan Santana 51.1 45.6
  2. Berkman really cratered in his mid-/late-30s, costing him counting stats. I don't recall, but I assume injuries.

    293/406/537 and 144 OPS+ are nothing to sneer at. But almost nothing for black ink. Only two seasons in the top 10 for rWAR (4 in the top 10 for position players). Just not enough there for a 1b/corner OFer.

    I am solidly on board with Halladay. Above average black and gray ink, tremendous innings eater with high-level performance (4 years leading the league in WAR for pitchers). 46th in career WAR for pitchers. He's in, despite the off-field and post-career demons.
