That's not great, especially in the context of 120 years of baseball. A 60s/70s rating is easily appropriate, or even overrated.

Vlad jr. Is dropping bad. Tatis jr is worth 4.2 WAR and tearing things up. He started at a 80ish, and because of how he's done, he's now a 100.

Giolito is worth 5.3 WAR this season and has a career WAR of 5.0 meaning from 16-18 he was worth -0.3 WAR. Those projections are tough to overturn when it's based on 3 years of below replacement level production. Next year he will be better.

You're not getting told wrong info, just info you don't like.

All this is bunk..Blake Snell is still a (93 Diamond Card) with a War of 1.3. Who was Balke Snell before last year? A zero A Nobody bum pitcher. You must have Blake Snell on all your teams if you the one who figures all this crap out. So your expalnation of a career (Abreu).292 hitter that averages 32 HR 109 RBI 89 Runs 5.0 Avg War a year is deserving of a 69 card is BUNK, try again, Bud
