Take wins above replacement (WAR) for example. Let’s say my number is 8.4 as a shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals. That number means I’m responsible for about 8-plus wins over a replacement player who could be acquired at a minimal cost with minimal effort at my position.
Wouldn’t it be great if every person in LinkedIn had a replacement value that could be quantified next to all of his/her titles throughout the years? I know, it’s preposterous, but it’s fun to think about.
