So, who's pulling their weight for the Nationals in 2010? I'm glad you asked!
I've created a spreadsheet telling you exactly what you want to know.
Included in the spreadsheet is the 2010 salaries of all of the Nationals combined with the Hitting RAR, Fielding RAR, Pitching RAR, Replacement levels, Position value, Total RAR, WAR, WAR/Salary and the Total value of the player (positive or negative).
I know it sounds complicated, but just take a look and you should be able to figure it out pretty easily!
Note, this chart is not saying that some players are underachieving. Obviously, Adam Dunn is having a great year, and by the end of the year, he'll be well worth his salary... but for now, he still hasn't played enough to reach what he is being paid.
Once again, I can't stress enough that this is not a indictment on Mike Rizzo or the team, it's just a barometer on how players have performed this year... and who still has some work left to do to justify their salary at the end of the year.
So, without further adieu, here is my up-to-date 2010 Nationals productivity chart!
The contract information comes from Cott's Contracts. You can visit their website here.
The RAR/WAR information comes from Fangraphs, you can visit their site, here.
