A look at every Orioles contract of $20 mm+

Recommended Posts

It appears those Fangraphs value numbers are not inflation adjusted for the older ones so you have to do some back of napkin math to compare to the newer ones. Appears to me that the Mussina deal blows them all out of the water, followed probably by Tejada and Jones.

Fangraphs $/WAR increased over time from 2002 through maybe 2015, and has kind of stalled the last 3-4 years.    Of course, a deal that was $20 mm surplus in 2000 is much more valuable, in proportion to overall payroll, to a deal that is $20 mm surplus today.      Certainly the Mussina deal was the best in terms of surplus per year compared to team payroll.   Too bad it wasn’t about 7 years longer.
