Bluebird Banter, SBN's Toronto Blue Jays blog, dissected the trade value of the team's major contributors using our Trade Value Calculator. I love reading analysis like this at more and more sites.
Consider this a plea for people to do more of it. Are you a fan of a team that's out of playoff contention? Figure out some fair trades for your biggest trading chips. Enjoying Dave Cameron's series on trade value at Fangraphs? Calculate what some of the players are actually worth. It would all be interesting to read at your blog, but this research would make great FanPost fodder here at BtB, too.
Toronto's top three trade values:
- Alex Rios: $53M
- Roy Halladay: $28M
- Scott Rolen: $19M
