Three years ago Pham was worth 6.2 wins, and got a few MVP votes.  The 0.8 is part of his 2018 season split between St. Louis and Tampa.

Nice catch and my mistake! I have no problem admitting that Pham is the better player and I got it wrong. Thanks for providing the correct information in you post rather than using ridicule and insults.

I still don't understand the football field between the 2 returns other than my previous assumptions about the way it happened. And I am not going to stoke that fire again.

No worries, we don't have to rehash anything.

What am I missing here?    John Elway took over a franchise that had gone 4-12 and had not finished over .500 for four straight seasons.    They are 82-58 since he took over, and won a Super Bowl.   And if you want to say it was all Peyton Manning (which isn’t true anyway), who convinced Manning to come to Denver?    Elway.   

I’m not saying Elway is some Hall of Fame executive, and maybe it’s time for him to move on, but he’s hardly the guy to whom Jeter should be compared in order to denigrate his performance.   
 

 

The Broncos are going to win 10+ games next year. Love what they’re doing.

Let's say the Angeloses said "You have $260M.  Out of that has to come payroll, player fringe benefits, all team expenses.  Whatever's left is your budget for rebuilding the team and getting us back to the playoffs. You get no more."

If I were Elias I'd be scheming every way possible to maximize what I could get out of that, and apply it to rebuilding.  Forbes thinks the O's ran a $6.5M deficit in 2018.  I don't necessarily believe it, but it's not like Elias has ($260 - 50M payroll) to spend on building.  I think/hope he has a productive plan for what to do with the $10M they saved on Villar, and the $5M they saved on Bundy.  And if not for those trades that plan would not be executed.

Given that we've only spent roughly half of our international signing slot money and the cost of infrastructure improvements are generally a one time cost not likely to come near ~$190 mil, I don't understand the need to cut to the bone.  I wouldn't sign anyone for more than a year right now, but giving away players to save marginal dollars doesn't seem necessary to the rebuild.

Didi only got 1/14 from Philly.  That makes Villar seem pricey at 1/10+. 

He won’t get $10 mm.   Book it.

Identical rWAR over the last 4 years, Didi is coming off a bad year and Villar is coming off his best year and Villar is a year younger.

Didi had TJ surgery, so it’s not really an apt comparison.    But, it injects uncertainty into how he’ll perform going forward, particularly defensively.
