Contract Crowdsourcing 2013-14: Scott Feldman

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: Scott Feldman.

Some relevant information regarding Feldman:

  • Has averaged 112.1 IP and 1.6 WAR over last three seasons.
  • Has averaged 2.5 WAR per 180 IP over last three seasons.
  • Recorded a 2.1 WAR in 181.2 IP in 2013.
  • Is entering his age-31 season.
  • Made $6.0M in 2013, as part of deal signed in offseason.

    Add him to the list of guys I wouldn’t be signing…no interest in him unless I could get him really cheap.

      Really? Why is that? By war he would have been at least the fourth best started on every playoff team other than the Tigers. On a few he would have been #3 and on the A’s he would have been #2.
      Considering the fact that he most likely will be making less than $10 million per year, I have a hard time imagining a team other than the Tigers that wouldn’t want him.

    I just think there is some regression coming with Feldman. And then I would be paying #3 money to a #5 fringe starter.
