    Rather than looking for magic bullets, IMHO, the above is exactly one of the primary goals of sabermetrics.

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S.

    Another thing about replacement level -- it refers to the level of performance you would expect to get from the best of the freely/cheaply available talent, not any freely/cheaply available talent. It's possible to be worse than replacement level. Sometimes considerably worse. That comes into play when people assume that anyone and everyone yanked out of the minor leagues is "replacement level." Not so.
    Gotcha, thanks.
