    What are the advantages of WAA over WAR?

    I am largely ignorant on the application, usage, and background of WAA. I could research it on my own time, but I was wondering if someone could give some preliminary pointers. Thanks!

    Its just raising the comparison baseline from replacement to average. Its practical application is more to comparing "dominance" than comparing overall value to a franchise (like in terms of $) like WAR does. All you have to do is remove replacement "points" and you have WAA.
