This didnt't amuse me as much after typing it out twice, by the way.
so everything inside of the greater then/less than signs gets removed... how bout that!
(MY TEAM) would NEVER do that deal!! (MY TEAM'S PLAYERS) are surefire superstars and (OTHER TEAM'S PLAYERS) are basically scrubs.
MAYBE (MY TEAM) would do (MY TEAM'S BACKUP CATCHER) and (MY TEAM'S #17 PROSPECT) for (OTHER TEAM'S SUPERSTAR), if (OTHER TEAM) would throw in (OTHER TEAM'S TOP PROSPECT).
It's a good thing none of you are GMs!

I think the big differences are (1) the inherent risk of young pitchers vs young hitters and (2) the fact that pitchers peak earlier than hitters, so while Stanton may still get better, Pineda may have already peaked.
Also, while Pineda's pre-2012 projections (usually around 150 IP with an ERA around 3 in a pitcher's park) were very good, Stanton's pre-2013 projections (the one's we have so far, anyway) are other-worldly (especially considering he is also in a pitcher's park)...
Another reason I think the cost would be astronomical is the fact that literally every team would be in the hunt. The year that Johan Santana and Dan Haren were both traded, Haren brought back a bigger return even though Johan was the best pitcher in the game... It was because the only teams willing to pay Johan were the Sox, Yanks, and Mets. Fewer bidders = lower price. With every team in the game bidding, I think his price would just keep jumping.
If I were the Marlins, I would at least put out feelers. Would Texas give you Profar, Olt/Martin, and Perez?
How about Taveras, Wong, and Miller/Martinez?
Marte, Hanson/Heredia, and Cole/Taillon?
D'Arnaud, Syndergaard, and Sanchez?
Boegarts, Bradley, and Barnes?
My gut feeling is that more than half of those packages still aren't enough.
Most of those teams probably balk at the price, but if one says yes you could get one helluva return.
I disagree - I don't even think Alonso/Grandal/Gyroko/Erlin gets it done. Those are four very good players, but if you trade someone like Stanton, you have to get some superstar potential back.
It wouldn't be like trading 1/2 year of Zack Grienke, where you have 2-3 teams bidding... If the Marlins announced that Stanton were available, every team in baseball would be fighting each other for the chance to hand over their farm system.
As a Ranger fan, they could offer something like Profar, Olt, Perez, and Martin and I don't know if I'd be too upset. It's a 24 year old, who is already one of the best players in baseball, who is under control for four years, and who gets paid next to nothing.
Is Straily looking like a top 100 guy going into 2013? Top 75?
What grade gets put on Naquin's hit tool - future 60?
Do you think he cab stick in CF for a couple of years and be slightly above average on both offense and defense?
This is INCREDIBLE, Rob! Now I feel like I've wasted the last month of my life creating my own similar spreadsheet!
Question: Will a player's value change depending on league format since some positions are thinner in one league? For example, replacement level for 1B in an NL-only league may be lower than for 1B in an AL-only league.
Adding prospects to this list would/will be the icing on an already delicious looking cake!
I assumed this meant that VORP (which itself is park-adjusted) is RE-adjusted to take OUT park effects.
That cold just be a bad assumption, though...
when someone asks so nicely how can you NOT do it?
Jon Daniels forever, btw.
AA is the best GM to never finish higher than second to last in his own division. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.
Chris Ianetta, Ramon Hernandez and Ryan Hannigan, Geovanny Soto, Miguel Montero, Carlos Ruiz
I'd argue for most of those over Ross. Ross might have more 'per plate appearance' value, but I wonder how he'd hold up if he got more than 200 PA.
Hey Rob, how do you feel about Shin-Soo Choo in a 10-team AL only scoresheet league? I had a couple of extra arms so I swapped Erik Bedard for Choo, hoping that I'm both buying low and selling high - Bedard went in round 15 and Choo in round 2.
Is Choo an upside play going forward or has he lost something?
