The question on everyone’s mind: Is this enough to compete with Golden State? In theory, each team is about even when it comes to star power (depending on how you view Anthony at this point in his career). Does the scoring prowess of this new Thunder team outmatch Curry/Durant/Thompson?
The more important question: how long will this last? Paul George will be a free agent after this season and Carmelo after two seasons. Plus Westbrook still hasn’t signed an extension, so it’s unclear if he’ll be returning after this season. This star party in OKC could be a short cameo.

Sure but he did have a batting average of over .300 for most of the season and it WAS SCARY. Of course, that was sustained by an unbelievably high BABIP and an even more unbelievably high HR/FB%. We know the power is there, and the exit velocity speaks for itself, but we also know that Judge strikes out A LOT. We saw it last year during Judge’s cup of tea in the Majors, we saw him strike out plenty during the first half of the season, and now we’re seeing teams adjust to Judge and mostly dominate him.

Liriano still has more than $4M left on his $13.67M contract this season. With the high money dump, and the reliever role, it’s not expected that the Blue Jays will receive much back in the deal.

Trout leads all of baseball in fWAR, 1.6 higher than Betts. You can’t just disregard Trout’s walks, as the ability to get on base via the walk is a legit skill. Betts has plenty of protection around him in the lineup while Trout has an aging Albert Pujols and that’s basically it. While Betts has a slightly higher BA, Trout has the higher OBP, SLG, wOBA, and wRC+ which tell you a lot more the cherry picked stats you gave us.
Btw, Betts’ lead in most of the counting stats are pretty minimal, and easily accounted for when you consider Betts has batted higher in the lineup (and has 50 more PA this season).

Rizzo is tough. He hasn’t seen the kind of underperformance these other 1B have seen, but he also hasn’t particularly hit the lights off the ball either. Belt and Cabrera have both been better than Rizzo for sure. So Rizzo got lost in the shuffle. He definitely falls under the category of 1B headliner of the future though.
