Recommended Posts

Joe Blanton (-0.4 fWAR, $15 million)

Sean Burnett (-0.1 fWAR, $9.5 million)

Ryan Madson ($3.25 million, didn't pitch)

Tommy Hanson (0.4 fWAR, $3.75 million)

 

Total: -0.1 fWAR, $31.5 million

 

Matt Harvey (-0.2 fWAR, $11 million)

Trevor Cahill (-0.5 fWAR, $9 million)

Cody Allen (-0.7 fWAR, $8.5 million)

 

Total: -1.4 fWAR, $28.5 million

 

The latter group, while $3 million cheaper, has been worth 1.3 wins less.  Gotta go with them.

Take out Madson and the price is nearly the same.
