Anti-stathead or not, this is a very fair assessment of last year's performance.

I wonder how much more value we can get out of Morel next season, or will there be another issue?

I understood very little of what he wrote but I know enough to agree with his final grade of Kenny.

How does Gavin Floyd show 14.6 mil profit?

How does Gavin Floyd show 14.6 mil profit?

He had a better than league average ERA, had that ridiculously nasty streak in the middle of the season when he was almost unhittable, and was paid a grand total of $2.75 M last year.

As his contract balloons in the next few years ($5 M in 2011, $7 M in 2012, and $9.5 M option in 2013) he will be much less of a bargain.

Gavin has the Alexei syndrome. He's usually horrible in the beginning of the year and then lights out by the middle of the season.

The 75-87 Cubs and their $144.4 million payroll only show a debit of $4.2 million. That tells me its almost impossible to not show a "profit" using this methodology.

This is the all-time worst and most ridiculous way to evaluate anything ever in the history of evaluating things.

Methodology aside, it proved that 3B, RF, and DH are the weakest pieces on this team by far, which was evident all year. I think that closer and 1B could become those too, but many FAs are available at fair costs with potential. We'll see.
