  1. So, if i'm reading this right, it's showing how many Yankees players are getting paid more than other clubs' highest paid player?


  2. It seems to show actual salary, not the average annual value of the contract, which is what MLB uses to determine things such as luxury tax. Would be cool to see how that stacks up too. Arod wouldn't be at 32.0 and Werth wouldn't be at 10.0 for example.

    • Yeah, the data comes from Cot's, which is where I got the data from. AAV is useful for many things, but for points-in-time analyses like the chart above, the specific year salary is most relevant.
