Weekend Links

To wrap up our week, I thought I’d collect a few links, primarily from the last week, to tide you over until Monday.

When someone says Player X is worth $6 million, what does thar mean? Dave Cameron at Fangraphs gives an answer. Think back to our discussion of replacement level, and you can see how this expands on that concept.

Who are the least likely World Series winners? Verdun gives us a list, and in doing so be reminded of how often the great flukes come up just short. The Impossible Dream Red Sox? They lost. The Whiz Kid Phillies? They lost.

Who are the players who attracted a bit of Hall of Fame support but not enough to survive the ballot’s 5% cutoff? Joe Posnanski reminds of this strange group, including some of my personal favorites like the grossly overlooked Lou Whittaker.

Edgar Martinez for the Hall? You already know I say yes. Rob Neyer . Check out his reasoning.

Finally, moving back two months, check out this piece on Ernie Harwell. Simply a fantastic piece of writing.
