On pace for a $45+ year ... with a .209 BABIP so far.  But I guess the BABIP problem comes from too many of his potential doubles clearing the wall ;-)

I feel like I'm missing something when you talk about a $20 "floor". Nearly every hitter has a $20 floor. Maybe Mike Trout's is $25, but when you buy an elite or potentially elite hitter there's always the risk of an extreme loss if he gets hurt or fails to perform.

The $39 CBS bid does seem overdone - but so did most of the early hitters in that auction.  I'm pretty good with the LABR $36 bid - you're buying a guy with a floor of $20 if a lot of stuff goes wrong ... which means he's still in your lineup each week ... and a ceiling of around $45 if he puts it all together at age 25.

He's being paid in CBS and LABR as if he's going to play a full schedule. As if he's going to repeat 2015. That isn't a crazy idea, and at the same time I want no part of it.

Top five wOBA last year:

Mike Trout .437

Aaron Judge .4304

J.D. Martinez .4299

Joey Votto .428

Bryce Harper .416

What's wOBA?

wOBA (Weighted On Base Average):
Combines all the different aspects of hitting into one metric,
weighting each of them in proportion to their actual run value. While
batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage fall short
in accuracy and scope, wOBA measures and captures offensive value more
accurately and comprehensively.

-- Fangraphs

OPS, of course, blends together batting average, on-base percentage and slugging average. The top five last year:

Mike Trout 1.071

J.D. Martinez 1.066

Aaron Judge 1.049

Joey Votto 1.031

Bryce Harper 1.008

There's a difference!
