Contract Crowdsourcing 2013-14: Gavin Floyd

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.

depending on his rehab…he looks for a 1 year deal in a pitcher friendly park/league to build up his value for next year….
if 2014 is more than half gone, maybe he’ll go for a Jon Lieber/yanks contract… 2 year deal with first year getting maybe 1 mil, and 2nd year getting a nice salary with a bunch of incentives.
