Some links for the fast-approaching weekend….

This one is for all you Rich Lederer fans out there.

Think that player salaries always go up? Not so fast. Shawn Hoffman at BP examines the relationship between player salaries and America’s GDP, concluding that the free agent class of 2012 should start cashing in while the best deals will happen in 2011.

Murray Chass goes after Patrick Sullivan for making statistics-centered arguments. Chass prefers his arguments centered around ERA, Wins, and opposing on-base percentage–you know, anti-statistics. Sullivan responds as only he can.

Saw this one Tango’s blog. The article linked makes it sound very interesting, but the comments from Tango’s post made me less inclined to read it. You decide.
