LOTD: Three-Year MLB Team Payroll Efficiency Analysis for 2006, 2007, 2008

MLB Team Payrolls 2006, 2007, 2008We are branching out to a new site for today’s Link of the Day, BaseballAnalysts.com, which I found through the always useful browse of the BallHype front page. Rich Lederer has an endlessly fascinating analysis of “MLB Payroll Efficiency” over the last three years.

He provides a variety of charts, graphs, and insight that explores the disparity in MLB baseball payrolls for the years 2006, 2007, and 2008, and also highlights the teams who spend money wisely and efficiently, and those who do not.

A few key highlights of the MLB Team Payroll Efficiency Analysis for 2006-2008 before I show you one of the charts and link you over to the article so you can read for yourself:

  • The Florida Marlins and Minnesota Twins are amazing. Their average combined average payroll between 2006-2008 is $94.35 million per year. To put that into perspective, it would fall in line at 14th, right behind the San Francisco Giants. Yet, their combined average win total over that time span is 82.67 wins per year. That is tied with the Cubs (average payroll: $115.16 million) and better than the Mariners (average payroll: $110.05 million), St. Louis Cardinals (average payroll: $101.81 million), and Houston Astros (average payroll: $101.69), among others. Clearly, they are spending money efficiently.
  • The New York Yankees spent a ridiculous $2.3 million per victory over the last three years. By contrast, those amazing Twins won about 6 fewer games per season but spent about $767,000 per victory. The Marlins spent $349,000 per victory.
  • This report also provides even more evidence for what we already know to be true: that the White Sox organization is superior to the Cubs in every way possible. The White Sox were a game better per season on average (with their awful 2007 season included) than the Cubs, while spending $1.24 million per victory as opposed to the Cubs’ $1.39 million. And yes Twins fans, by the same reasoning the Twins prove to be superior to the White Sox, but quick question: who won that one-game playoff last year? Oh yeah, that’s right.

Anyway, definitely an interesting read for all the baseball fans out there. Here is the link and a recreation of one of the charts for your viewing pleasure. And don’t forget to look below the chart for a roundup of some other great links from around the sports blogosphere today.
