The Marlins, the Red Sox, and goodwill

Here are the combined salaries and WAR estimates for Ramirez, Infante, Johnson, Reyes, Buehrle, Bell, Bonifacio, and Buck:

Year Price Est. WAR $/Win Value
2013 $75.9 22.5 $5.25 $42.2
2014 $68.9 12.5 $5.51 $0.0
2015 $43.0 5.5 $5.79 -$11.2
2016 $22.0 3.0 $6.08 -$3.8
2017 $22.0 2.5 $6.38 -$6.0
$231.8 46.0 $21.3

One reason for the major disparity between their surplus of value in 2013 and their deficit from 2015-2017 is the back-loaded contracts Reyes and Buehrle signed. They will see a combined $20 million raise from 2013 to 2015. A pessimist would view those contracts as evidence of an intention to sell off the players from the start, but I wonder what would have happened to the Marlins team if Miami had refused to pay for a new stadium and Loria had sold the team as Henry had before him.
