Lewie Pollis recently wrote an article at Beyondtheboxscore.com where he looked at the cost for wins in the free agent market. While there is some discussion on his findings, I found the following graph interesting (GDP source).
What caught my attention was the lack of smoothness at the end of the graph. It sort of mirror the nationâ€™s economy … all over the place. So I went ahead and plotted the free agent cost and the GDP. Additionally, I plotted their correlation.
Yep, it looks like free agent values have pretty much fallen right in line with the GDP. Â Not really a surprise, just verification.
