I've have a study on player compensation, projected WAR, and actual WAR.  This builds on some data I received from Sky Andrecheck of Baseball Analysts.  The article is longer than my blog permits, so here's a link to it:

Hi Sean, I can't seem to find a contact address for you, but I wanted to ask you something regarding TZR. Could you send me an email if you get the chance?

Yeah, subtracting the minimum salary would be a needed step to get a precise $ per win. Good question on whether it's the rate stats or playing time. Something to look into.

Another thought. Since a replacement player costs $400k, when a 1 WAR player signs for $4.4MM, it looks like the team is paying $4.4MM/win. In reality they are paying $4MM per win. It doesn't look like you take this into consideration with your projections. ***Bizarre. I had this comment cued up and previewed, but when I saved it, my earlier comment showed up. Then I get the token three minute wait before I can post the real comment:(***

Are you missing on PT, rate of production, or a combination of both? If you isolate the offensive component, how close do the players come to hitting their projection? Is it possible that this is random variance caused by the less reliable defensive projections? How much value is lost by virtue of position switches?
