And you could have made a very strong case for Harper.  He was coming off a massive season.

I wonder where an 8.3 rWAR drop ranks historically?

Without missing significant time, it has to be pretty high up there. I think the largest drop of the modern era by rWAR was Steve Carlton in 1972-1973. 12.2 to 2.2 I believe.

There have been worse drops but they were partially explained by missing significant time.

Can of Clickbait! 

Harper's biggest advantage is his patience at the plate. Manny's is his defense. Overall I think I'd take Manny but you aren't likely to go wrong with either. 

The clickbait was from ESPN, unless you mean the 6-1 part.
