  1. Kyle S says:

    Are those values different from what they would be if the players played for other teams? In other words, if Cabrera was a yankee, would he have been worth $25m?

  2. JC says:

    An excellent question!

    The values are based on a free agent signing on a .500 team. Adjusting value by market is misleading, because the opportunity cost of playing in a small market is playing in a big market. So, for a small-market team to purchase a free agent it would have to compensate them with a higher amount. However, then determining a value of wins in different markets is another can of worms. So, I settled on the average.
