2011 Free Agency Update

Last week while at the Winter Meetings, I posted a story that outlined how overpriced the free agent market was playing out. Here is an update to that table that includes Crawford’s new fortunes. The addition of Crawford’s contract means this year’s free agent class has been paid $34.9m $40.4m more than what Bradbury had calculated their value at back in his November article.

Hopefully, for the Rays sake, some market correction is coming soon as the player pool becomes larger than the jobs available in January when Friedman typically does his best work.
