The narrative around Harper is so funny. He was a 4.5 win player last season. That's not MVP level or anything, but top 25 hitter in the MLB level. He was "worth" about $36M last year (maybe more given that teams are showing $/win isn't linear they would rather concentrate their money on high win players than league average players, with how they have been acting in free agency and contract tendering to arb-eligible players).

He was worth about $11M more than his AAV, and $25M more than what he was paid last year. That ain't bad.

That will depends on how many WS titles the Yankees win in the next 5 years.

based on that logic - was the Winfield contract a bust?

Mr. May? Iíd say no good contract. But George and Dave were like oil and water. I donít think that was on Winfield. Yanks never had the pitching in the 80s to get over the hump.

Iím just saying the Cole contract success or failure will be measured in WS titles or lack thereof.

It would be really interesting to see the advanced analytics on a contract like this. How his performance is projected over the course of the contract would be interesting but injury projections would also be fascinating. Over the lifespan of that contract for a pitcher it seems like you just almost have to assume that he'll lose at least 1 season to an injury at some point.
