Another look at the free agent class. This one from Fangraph.com’s David Cameron.
The goal here isn’t to provide the best value in terms of $/WAR, but to identify — at least, in my view — which contracts are likely to have the biggest magnitude of effect on a team’s chances of winning going forward. And, on the flip side, the contracts that could do the most harm to a team’s ability to contend over the life of the deal.
Here’s his top five:
1. Nick Swisher, OF: 4 years, $56 million
2. B.J. Upton, OF: 4 years, $52 million
3. Anibal Sanchez, SP: 4 years, $52 million
4. Zack Greinke, SP: 6 years, $114 million
5. Angel Pagan, OF – 3 years, $30 million
for his generous support.
