The Rar (runs Above Replacement) Stat

Recommended Posts

Don't know if you guys have seen the NBC Circling the Bases blog today but it mentions the RAR-stat which I've never heard of before and it seems like a good fantasy tool in my eyes. Anyone know where I can find a RAR-list of each team so far this year?

It's a good stat to use in order to avoid over paying for a player just because they are a veteran.

It's another stat that I think supports playing your young prospects at the MLB level instead of overpaying a veteran to have marginally better production.

For franchise players, looking at one's RAR/VORP history is a good strategy of looking for hidden value players ... especially in an AL or NL only league.
