Angels Positional WAR Improvements

Baseball Prospectus analyst Ben Lindbergh wrote an article for ESPN Insider listing the teams with the best positional improvements according to PECOTA's 2012 WAR predictions. To break it down, it says Albert is a 4.9 WAR improvement over Mark Trumbo, and Chris Ianetta is a 3.1 WAR improvement over that other guy. Translation: PECOTA predicts we added 8 wins simply by signing Pujols and trading for Ianetta. This isn't even factoring in CJ Wilson. Chatwood put up a -0.6 WAR last season while CJ provided 5 WAR. That's a significant upgrade.
