What if we really, truly could get McCutchen and Reyes?
How would this 2012 Giants to compare to the potential 2012 Yankees, for example?
I took two stats:
OPS+ and WAR for batters.
ERA+ and WAR for pitchers.
It gets just a little wonky comparing and extra pitcher and only 8 hitters in the line-up for an NL Giants team and one less bullpen pitcher and a DH for an AL Yankees team.
I did 'fudge' a little with Posey's, Huff's, Belt's, and Hembree's stats. I projected a low-ish estimate for how well they might perform on this 2012 team. Everyone else, I used 2011 stats for on the entire chart.
Take care to all. Be well.
