    I'm very much aware. This is why I placed it in Between Innings

    Perhaps they should donate their salary when they stink :o

    Barry Zito makes the most money of any current Giant. From 2007-2011, he earned $80 million. Zito, a historic bust, lost 60 games of 140 started in that time (one loss came from a 12th inning appearance in 2010). We'll ignore the other nine games he appeared in. Zito was paid $571,429 per start, losing this much for the Giants for every lost decision for a total of $34,285,714.

    Doing the same for A.J. Burnett of the 2009-2011 Yankees, $505,102 was the average GS price. Burnett totaled a $17,678,571 "loss" for the Yankees, a team of significantly strong run support.

    Any other such examples? They can also be historical if you have the salary data and/or wish to adjust for inflation.

    I think it would be more meaningful to do it by WAR or some other measure. A pitcher can go 8-16 and still have pitched well. Also this system penalizes pitchers who actually stay healthy and make a lot of starts.
