I heard a rumor that 1-31 are all Braves.

Is Harvey going to be the only Met? I know there are several players listed already that I'd trade Dickey for without much hesitation, so I'm not sure he gets on the list. And Wright's expiring deal isn't likely to show up.

Dickey should be #1 or close to it, imo. A CY for $5M with no additional commitment, but with leverage to get him to sign a cheap extension, since he hasn't made much in his career yet and he should know that a down year could seriously damage his payday.

Well, pre-arb players should probably make up the top spots, like Trout, Harper, etc. But I think Dickey has to be the best value from a post-arb player.

don't know how Ike wouldn't make the list.  Power hitters are in short supply and with 4 years of cheap control he holds a lot of value.

I would have thought Ike would've been lumped with Freeman, Goldschmidt, and Rizzo in the honorable mentions if he were to make it (even though I think he's better than the others). I guess he has a shot to show up today.

Simmons will be near the top of the list. You wished you had a HOF like him!

You wouldn't trade Dickey for Mike Trout or Harper or Heyward etc, on and on and on.  Dickey, due to his age, wont be anywhere near a list like this, IMO.

He is already on the list at 45.  Pretty surprising to me.

His age has nothing to do with anything. He's a CY on a steal of a contract. Dickey should certainly be on the list ahead of Matt Holliday or anyone else getting paid what they're worth.

My follow up post revises my mistaken opinion that he should be #1. I think he has the best post-arb contract in baseball. Pre-arb guys are basically well-paid slaves, so of course they're going to have the most valuable contracts.

I'm kind of surprised that Thole didn't make the list.

In what universe does Andrelton Simmons have more trade value than Paul Goldschmidt? Some people should just quit the Internet.

Goldschmidt is around 30, IMO. A Todd Helton who steals 20 bases? Yes please. LOL Mr.Keri.

That he is on the list or should be higher?

Look at it this way; I have RAD projected at about $16M in value for 2013. He is due $5M, so he has $11M in surplus value.

Take a guy with three years of service who projects to be slightly below average [1.75 fWAR per] for the next three years; he is worth $28M over the next four years at a cost of $17M; the same $11M in surplus value.

So, RAD has some more concentrated surplus value, but any young players that are average or better with a couple of years of team control are still more valuable in total.
