    McMahon has a career wRC+ of 95 playing at Coors. I’d hate to see how he’d do calling Oakland his Home park.

      I’m not sure you understand how wRC+ works. The statistic takes into into account ballpark as an external factor that leads to variation in the Runs Created (RC) statistic. In this way it purposefully readjusts for the Coor’s Effect, such that Rockies’ players will have a lower wRC+ that what a simple RC calculation would produce. Similarly, since Oakland is a pitcher’s ballpark, A’s players have a higher wRC+ than what their RC would be. Therefore, in a vacuum, if you were replace McMahon’s hits that occurred at Coor’s and imagine that they occurred at the Coliseum, he would have a significantly higher wRC+ than the 95 he currently has.

      All that said, McMahon doesn’t make much sense for the A’s or as a trade target for any team since his production has been pretty underwhelming so far. Not to mention that Jimenez is a Rule 5 pick from this year which limits his tradability.

    I do understand wRC+. I failed to adequately articulate how much McMahon sucks.
