He might be a good card. Are his ratings revealed?

SDS

He will be a poor man's Roberto Alomar, almost to a T...

Brian Roberts might have only had a diamond rating 1 time in his career. He was a 2 time all star. Solid player, nothing more.

Belliard, Hudson, and Frey all have more fWAR than Carter.

Roberts also has more fWAR than Sierra and Lee.

Try looking at stats yourself, rather than relying on arbitrary comps.

Didn’t we get 99 Alomar, Henderson and Verlander in this program last year?

Not hating on Roberts, but not much better than Program 2. Time to start ramping things up, no?

Ya, especially with the FS inflated garbage out there. I was expecting some great rated legends to begin to bury those cards

A little bit further than borderline, but definitely in a group above the rest of those names.

Look at his stats compared to Carter’s and please show me how Carter is in any way close to Murphy though.

I would never say he was. Weird comp...

Murphy was a 2 time, elite fielding MVP. His problem was he had a peak.. and was trash before and after it.

Carter was consistently a secondary player, nothing more...

one guy I think who could deserve to be a boss and is as underrated as Carter is overrated is John Olerud! One of my favorites. Dude had a HOF career, plain and simple.. and gets zero respect.. none

I completely agree.

57.3 fWAR is no easy task.

SDS

Joe Carter hit a walk off home run in the world series, and batted 3rd for back to back world series winning teams! Don't care his WAR is low because he played below-average defense and didn't have a very good OBP, dude won and deserved to be a boss! Something should be said about being a clutch and winning player vs somebody who has a lot of empty stats.

I love stats and advanced analytics, but Carter was a feared bat on a winning team in his prime.
