Catchy title. Vince Gennero has been putting out an excellent series of articles on player value at the Hardball Times. Tuesday’s column deals with teams who are close to making the playoffs, yet need that final piece to put them over the top.
One of his examples talks about how Brandon Inge would be more valuable to an 85 win Yankees team then Alex Rodriguez would be to a 65 win Tiger team because of the increased chances of the Yanks making the playoffs.
Also, you can check my already outdated Business of Baseball report. I went to bed thinking the council was done only to find out this morning that they got back together an hour after the real meeting ended and agreed on a lease. Guess I’ll have something to write about next week.
