You have already had success as a teacher.
I was hoping for a talking doll with a string or a button that when you pull or press it it says, "That's a Clown Question Bro" or "Where's my ring?"

Making a cake for an office event on Thursday. Got the recipe from my brother-in-law's wife. She made it at Christmas and it was excellent. I made it a week later and really liked it then too. Super-easy. My comments in parentheses.
1 package yellow cake mix
1 package instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup sherry (DO NOT use cooking sherry! It's too salty. Use the real stuff, Taylor's or Harvey's Bristol Cream.)
3/4 cup vegetable oil (or corn oil, which is what I use)
1 tsp nutmeg
Beat everything for 5 minutes at high speed. Put in greased Bundt pan and bake at 350 for 50 minutes. (I start the timer at 40 minutes and take it out early if it's done.)
Dust with powdered sugar when cool. (Don't let it cool too long lest it stick to the pan.)
Is that one win above replacement (as in WAR) or does "above average" mean something different than "above replacement" in which case I suppose that means he's better than 1 WAR.
From watching him, I think he'd be one of the best defensive SS in the game if he played every day for a full season. He has elite range, elite arm, and is probably about the best I've ever seen at turning a DP. He's also one of our best baserunners if not the best. If he could hit .240, take some walks, hit 20 homers, he'd be one of the top SS in the NL.
but Espinosa's major league statistics at SS suggest he's worth about 1 win above average
I suspect you're just being contrarian per your usual MO, but Espinosa's major league statistics at SS suggest he's worth about 1 win above average per year at SS on defense and that he's actually better at SS than 2B. It doesn't change that he's not a good hitter and it's based on a small sample, but it's not "nothing."
