Team Payroll Value Index - 2011

April 14, 2011 - So how did the World Series runner ups make out this year in the Team Payroll Value Index.  Not too shabby at all, and that's pretty hard to do when the numbers start to rise and they run out and buy top notch free agents.

1) Roy Halladay.  Roy Halladay won the Cy Young last year in his first season in Philadelphia and with one more good year has already stamped his ticket to Cooperstown five years after he retires.  Most think that he shortchanged himself in the dollar department when he signed with Philly, and that's probably true.  We project his salary in 2011 at $22.7 million and Philadelphia got him for $20m.  It was a good deal for Philly and Roy will probably be able to afford to eat.

2) Cliff Lee.  It's funny.  We like Cliff Lee alot.  But, just from a personal standpoint, we think the contract given was a little long and a little high for our tastes.  It's a bargain in 2011 at $11 million when he's worth $20 million.  And we realize that even in those other years, that taste will be pretty sweet when Cliff wins 15 games and has a great postseason, which we wouldn't be surprised at at all.  His postseason for the Phils two seasons ago was one of the best in history and his season three years ago with Cleveland was one of the best regular seasons in history.  So it's hard to say the contract was a bit high.  But we think, and SPRO, thinks it was.

3)  Brad Lidge and the dilemma of paying top dollars for an inconsistent player.  There was lots of evidence in the past stats of Brad Lidge to note that while he can have truly remarkable seasons, as he did in leading Philadelphia to the World Series victory in 2008, he can also have more than a few that are not.  So now the Phils have a closer who'se really only a part-time closer and worth nowhere near the $12 million they're paying.  In their case, the rest of the team is filling in for that problem, but it is a problem that has been the downfall of other teams.  Consistency and durability are key factors in when and how much you pay players.  Sometimes we think it's forgotten in the glow of free agency, but it is important.

What is SPRO (Salary Projection)?

SPRO is the acronym for Stat Geek Baseball's New Salary Projection system number that approxomates the salay a player should be paid by their club in the current year or future years.  It is available for every player and every pitcher in baseball history through the Stat Geek Baseball Yearly or History data sets in current year values.  It is the output of 5,000 hours of research into developing a player rating system (PEVA) that correlates to how baseball players are compensation and projects that rating to a salary projection taking into account baseball stats as well as Major League Service TIme or its equivalent EXPEQ (Experience Equivalent).  SPRO does not represent our random value for what a player should be paid or what we'd like him to be paid, but attempts to form a value represenating how they are paid.  For more information on PEVA and the other new Stats, see our Definitions page.
