It's the insistence on putting everyone's contribution on the same scale. They are comparing apples to oranges, but instead just compare "fruit". A player's contribution is more rounded and complex than any one number. It's why my go to quick and dirty state is the slash line (AVG/OBP/SLG). You get a picture of the player in one glimpse. WAR of X, honestly, tells me nothing.
