    I picked Pillar, in the assumption that we're talking right now, and not counting future value.

    I would also have picked Alford if it was the full 40 man.

    I think you could make the case for any of them other than Pearce who is also a good player. Pillar seems like the correct choice at first but he only had 1.9 WAR last season. Wasn't much better the year before that. Tough call IMO.

    TBF all the others put together only totalled 2.5 WAR in 2017.

    Toss up between Pillar and Grichuk if talking talent level.

    Granderson has out WAR'd Pillar in every single year since Pillar's debut in 2013 and Steamer projects that he'll do it on a per game basis again this year.

    According to what? Fangraphs has Grandy with a 2.1 WAR last year. Grichuk had 1.4. Teoscar had a half win in 27 games. Pearce struggled with .1 due to his poor defense.

    Granderson has posted a higher WAR than Pillar every single season he's been in the bigs (even when Pillar was good in 2015). He's old and declining, but Pillar's also declining in the 1 area he provides value.

    Edit - ah fuck Term, you beat me to it. You get the thanks.

    If we are talking highest floor.... Pillar
    Highest present value.....Pillar due to that floor
    Highest ceiling.... I could probably be swayed for arguments for either Grichuk or Hernandez

    I think he means all the OFers (excluding Pillar) add up to 2.5. I was also confused and about to post the same thing.

    But they don't add up to 2.5. Grandy and Grichuk alone add up to 3.5. Grandy himself out WAR'd Pillar.

    I went with Pillar for now. Pretty tough call actually.

    I'm a little surprised at the lack of love for Grandy in this thread. He is easily the best OF currently IMO. His worst season batting season of his career is better than Pillar's best not to mention Pillar's defense is dropping off as he's aging.
