With all due respect your posts in general are some of the best on this forum. On this issue they are borderline nonsensical
When I think replacement level and look at Syracuse, Maya springs to mind first. So if accept that leap of faith and also your 2.9 WAR for Stras, we'd be in first or tied for first even with Maya in the rotation in place of Stras, right? Isn't that what you are getting at?
Sure, I dropped the Maya reference to raise a few eyebrows, but I don't think it's way far off the point you were trying to make.
