Team Payroll Value Index - 2012

April 23, 2011 - For a team that is a perrennial member of the playoffs, but took a step back in 2011 by not winning their first round, what impact did that have on their Team Payroll Value Index.  Did they step backwards in their ability to pay a reasonable wage to players considered stars.  How do those fabulous pitchers stack up on the payroll value scale?

1) Roy Halladay.  In his second year in Philadelphia, Roy Halladay pitched a second straight Cy Young worthy season, even though he finished second in the voting.  Already ranked in the Best Ever Book as the 7th best pitcher in Philly history.  That's right!  7th after only two years, that's how good Halladay has been.  His SPRO salary is rated at $22,579,000 and they're paying him $20m.  A bit of a bargain, but pretty much in line with salary standards.

2) Cliff Lee.  We'd flip the valuations between the two top pitchers here, with Halladay worth a tad more than Cliff, but the Philadelphia contracts reflect the opposite.  Lee is worth $20,000,000 to the SPRO model, but is being paid at $21,500,000.  Of course, last year the salary was $11m.  Cliff was rated as the 4th best pitcher in baseball last year according to our PEVA ratings.

3)  Cole Hamels.  Signed prior to arbitration, his 4th year in that category, to a $15m one year deal, and worth every penny of it as the SPRO model tags him at $14,486,000, you can expect Cole to get a hefty sum when his extension is signed.  He's probably gonna get north of the Matt Cain numbers of 6 years and $114.5m, but is really about the same pitcher as Cain.

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.
