Contract Crowdsourcing 2013-14: Nate McLouth

Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent offseasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating this offseason a contract-crowdsourcing project, the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowds to the end of better understanding the 2013-14 free-agent market.

Note that, this year, in addition to asking readers to estimate the years/dollars each free agent is likely to receive, FanGraphs is also requesting that readers make note of how much they’d pay each free agent were they, themselves, actual GMs.

In this edition: Nate McLouth.

Some relevant information regarding McLouth:

  • Has averaged 404 PA and 1.1 WAR over last three seasons.
  • Has averaged 1.6 WAR per 600 PA over last three seasons.
  • Recorded a 2.5 WAR in 593 PA in 2013.
  • Is entering his age-32 season.
  • Made $2.0M in 2013, as part of deal signed in offseason.

Using the form below, estimate the years and average annual dollar values both likely and ought to be received by McLouth this offseason.

    I may value him a little more highly, but, I think he’s better than a straight platoon player. He just doesn’t get enough chances against lefties. He’s been slowly improving against lefties over the past few years, and I think he’ll find someone to give him 3 years.
