There exist different versions of WAR: FanGraphs has one version (fWAR), Baseball Reference has another (rWAR), and Baseball Prospectus has a third version (WARP). Each of them calculates it differently, so you’ll sometimes see big differences in these values. Julio Teheran posted 4.8 rWAR in 2016, which makes it seem like he was a really good pitcher, but FanGraphs pegged him for only 3.2 fWAR and BP put Teheran at 3.8 WARP.

The Tennessee Titans quietly may have had one of the best offseasons thus far. Replacing head coach Mike Mularkey was a surprising but good decision, and the team retained right guard Josh Kline. The additions of former New England Patriots Dion Lewis Good Site For Cheap Jerseys and Malcolm Butler were also upgrades Hockey Jerseys over their incumbents, giving the team a higher floor than it had previously.
