Quick Thoughts: Cost of Free Agent Wins and Gross Domestic Product

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 nation’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.  Not really a surprise, just verification.
