McClutchen's 2012 WIS price? Topic

With my Pirates competitive for the first time in a few decades, I'm paying attention to real MLB news now.

I have to wonder what McClutchen is worth over a full season in WIS?

Assume a little drop off, let's call it 625 PA, .350 average, .410 OBP, .600 SLG, with 30 HR and 25/8 SB/CS ratio.  Call his fielding range a B- , and his fielding rating an A (1 error so far).  Closest I can see to him is 1997 Larry Walker and that's about $9.5m with worse D, but more power and OBP. 

I'm thinking low 9m range... Call it 9,200,000. 

Other opinions?

1992 Barry Bonds costs 8.21M and might be comparable.

Maybe the Suggestions section wasn't the best place to put that idea.  I know people like to guess at what players will cost right before they are released, but I like the idea of being able to keep track and project guys throughout the season as their stats change.

$1300 / PA = $8,125,000 - imho

Based on your projected stats and D ratings I'd put him around $8.2-$8.25 million.

$8,422,161 - $8,422,229

Two dollars. Yeah, I'm that guy. Good fielding will really drive the price up, huh?

I've never really delved into the intricacies of pricing, but I have to ask - why is McCutchen priced higher than Trout?  Defense is probably a wash (A/A- vs. B+/A+); Trout's power and SB numbers are better; AVG and OBP are a wash.  Are 34 more PAs enough to offset Trout's better numbers?

The extra PA is the difference. Trout has a (very) slightly higher $/PA, so WIS considers him a hair better than McCutcheon overall. It's striking how similar almost all of their numbers are.
