  1. So should Kenny Williams get the Blame for the Bobby Jenks deal?

  2. For players with very low incomes the $/war calculation is misleading. A replacement level player making the league minimum should be of average value – but here he would be paid an infinite amount per win. Similarly for a guy like Roman Colon, paid $670,000 for 0.1 of a win. In the table that is measured as $6.6m/win – when in fact he is paid $270,000 for the 0.1 marginal wins – or $2.7million per win. You need to adjust for the fact that a replacement level player comes with a replacement level salary.

  3. I would think that waiting on Jenks might have been dangerous, if Papelbon’s deal gets done and Jenks had that to use to make his case?

  4. Are you lumping the super-two’s from last year in with the “first year arbitration” players? For example, pretty sure Melky Cabrera was arb-eligible last year as a super-two, so technically he is in his second year of arbitration. Same thing at the end, there could (but I’m not sure) be some players in your “third year arbitration group” that are actually in their fourth year.

    Chances are this is the 100% correct thing to do, based on how players have been compensated in the past. E.g. super two’s in their second year are treated just like first year arb players. It would just be nice to see it explicitly stated, with a sentence or two.

  5. That’s a good catch – I took out all players who were super-2 eligible this year, I’ll have to take a look through it later for those who were super-2s in the past.

  6. Josh Hamilton signed, per the Dallas Morning News. MLBTR doesn’t have this yet.

  7. And Papelbon, for $9.35 million.

  8. Isn’t there some rule where none of these guys can be traded for awhile?

  9. How come Barmes’ chWAR is listed in the graph as 0.7, but if I go to his FanGraphs page he has a chWAR of 1.9. Is there something I’m missing here?

  11. Great articles. There’s a lot of nice rmationhere, though I did want to let you know something, I’m running Redhat with the up-to-date beta of Firefox, and the design of your site is kind of wonky for me. I can read the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so well.
