Stuff I’m Reading: $/Win, King, Flood and Suits

- At Beyond the Box Score, Lewie Pollis adapts a piece of his college thesis to do new research on the price of a win on the open market. He comes up with a number of $7 million. This is really, really important as it should influence the evaluation of signings and trades. The old $5 million per win had been feeling extremely dated.

- At Amazin Avenue, Jeff Paternostro writes about how much he likes Mets’ fifth-round pick Jared King.

- Patrick Flood, who used to write for this very network, writes about the experience of blogging and baseball. It, like everything Patrick wrote, is well worth reading, and surely deserves a bigger audience than it will receive.

- There is a tumblr dedicated to Craig Sager’s suits. It’s just as awesome and colorful as you would expect and hope.
