Does anyone have a Win Share link? Did a little search with no luck.
As far as Casey is concerned, I am concerned that his production (Win Shares, HR, RBI, however you measure it) is dropping as his salary is increasing. His 2002 WS numbers can't be to impressive either, showing a clear downtrend since '99.
I'd be curious as to his rank in Win Shares for 1B across the league during his tenure. I'd bet he'd be a league average or below.
The big question is how easily can his Win Shares be replaced? Thats the only question you have to answer IMO. According to VORP it shouldn't be too hard to find a replacement for his based on this years stats.
1999 VORP 42.3
2000 VORP 21.3
2001 VORP 18.9
2002 VORP 3.5
Useless? No. Replaceable? Yes, and most likely at a substantial cost savings.
