Merry Christmas from Fangraphs: Wins Above Replacement!

This is absolute greatness!

FanGraphs more fully asserts itself as increasingly the most dominanty stat-oriented baseball site with the introduction of their own WAR system, now available on the players pages.

I'm not sure how you could read the sentence and still be here instead of there. Unfortunatly, I need to reach a limit, so here's what they've got:

Batting - wRAA (Runs Above Average) with a park adjustment.
Fielding - The sum of a player’s UZR.
Replacement - The replacement level adjustment set at 20 Runs / 600 PA.
Positional - The positional adjustment set using Tangotiger’s values (see this link)
Value Runs - The sum of Batting, Fielding, Replacement, and Positional.
Value Wins - Value Runs converted to a wins scale.
Dollars - Value Wins converted to the following dollar scale:

The last is just completely win. I don't exactly know what pitchers' RAA will be based on, I want to look in to it. I have my own thoughts on that (I really like pRAA based on tRA), and I prefer plus/minus to UZR (and looking at both is even better), but these are minor quibbles, this is the best baseball news this off season.
