2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)"for example, Ichiro's value..." Besides Ichiro, and Matsui, are there other examples of players whose economic value isn't captured by his win value? What other ways do you see value?
(Sam from OC)
OK, so you're right, the Japanese cases are too easy. How about like Gary Carter was to the Mets, where he was a real face of the franchise (even if other players didn't really like him for it). (Tommy Bennett)
2009-10-07 14:30:00 (link to chat)Bench, Berra, Lombardi - and then Mauer? Is that reasonable? (I'm discounting Piazza a bit because of his defense)
(dcoonce from bloomington, indiana)
JAWS has it Bench (87.6), Ivan Rodriguez (85.7), Gary Carter (81.6) and then Berra (72.1), though I think the postseason stuff elevates Berra into the discussion. Lombardi was a good hitter at his peak but he's got nowhere near the overall numbers on either offense or defense enter into a discussion for greatest of all time. Mauer has a ways to go before he deserves to be considered alongside those guys. (Jay Jaffe)
