Trade Rumors

Athletics Nation

Blez of Athletics Nation has an article discussing my Dollars/Run stat.

Title Track

From the South Florida Sun-Sentinel:
The Padres, White Sox and Blue Jays are the latest trio of contending clubs to express serious interest in the hard-throwing right-hander[, A.J. Burnett]. Marlins scout Gene Watson was in Chicago over the weekend for the A's-White Sox series, and the Padres scouted Burnett's 14-strikeout outing last week in South Florida.


Option Sean Burroughs

I really think it would be best for both the Padres and Sean Burroughs if he spent some time in Triple-A. Who should be called up to replace him? Bobby Scales. Bobby Scales is batting .285/.390/.478. A fairly rough Major League equivalent of that line is .250/.350/.390. Sadly, that's a significant upgrade over Sean and Geoff Blum for that matter. Granted, Damian Jackson is still playing like an above average Major League third baseman, but it'd still be nice to have another guy on the team who approaches league average at the hot corner.

Shouldn't your formula be:

( Games Played / Team Games * Salary ) / VORP

Instead of:

( Games Played / 162 * Salary ) / VORP

Annual salary is based on a 162 game season, no?

Yes, but if we're looking at in-season rates and one team has played 82 games while another has played 79 we're giving unfair advantages to one and not the other... If you're concerned about salary-of-scale then similarly divide the money by team games.
