Royals Biggest Gainers And Losers In New Version Of rWAR

Baseball Reference overhauled their WAR formula, and as someone who relies (too much) on WAR to understand Royals history better, I was interested to see which Royals players had the biggest swings. I may or may not redo the team hall of wWAR sometime with the new numbers.

I only looked at players that had 5.0 WAR in either iteration. Just a little data dump on another wild and crazy Friday night:

+4.5 Willie Wilson (35.7-40.2)
+4.2 Frank White (26.9-31.1)
+4.0 Zack Greinke (22.7-26.7)
+3.8 Kevin Appier (44.1-47.9)
+3.5 Bret Saberhagen (37.3-40.8)

-5.4 David DeJesus (21.9-16.5)
-2.5 Joe Randa (15.0-12.5)
-1.6 Carlos Beltran (24.6-23.0)
-1.5 Mike Macfarlane (13.1-11.6)
-1.5 Darrell Porter (17.3-15.8)
-1.5 Mike Sweeney (22.2-20.7)
