    It depends on what you are trying to look at. I do trust bWAR for individual player data. Especially for outfielders. I think DRS is a much better metric than UZR for outfielders. For pitchers? I honestly like averaging the two. Gohard for example I don't think has pitched as good as his FIP suggests or as bad as his ERA suggests.

    fWAR loves Alex Wood so that one gets used for him.
    I tend to like bWAR for pitchers and a "somewhere in the middle" approach for hitters. I wasn't calling you out, just saying there's an obvious lack of consistency all-around.
    I think fWAR is mostly used because they were really the front runners of it's use and the website is a lot better to use
