Baseball salary vs. performance

Posted at 11:30 AM on March 2, 2006 by Ben Tesch

I guess when it rains it pours: another interactive baseball salary application crossed my desk, this time the salary vs. performance chart, which tracks what teams are spending versus how they are doing in the standings. I particularly kept an eye on the Twins (who dropped like a stone in August) and the Yankees (who's big fat line slowly crept back up at the end of season). Also interesting to watch was Houston, who jumped back and forth from blue to red like a signal meter.

The "Twins" are playing the "Red Sox" (I put them in quotes because both are just spring training shells of their actual selves) tonight at 6:05pm. It's on FSN, I believe. If you don't have/steal cable (or have one of those super-antennas which I've just heard about,) there is a Sunday afternoon game being broadcast on FOX 29 in the Twin Cities. Go put on a straw hat and pretend you're in Florida. Tomorrow is the start of the WBC, but I already mentioned the tough TV schedule.
