FA Types

Thought I'd post a diary of this since a lot of the information seems to be scattered. This is a further analysis of what I posted earlier. I'm basically using comparisons of what free agents were considered in earlier rankings.

There are some funky ratings that I'm not sure if they're a fluke or not, which might make these comparisons completely wrong, though. So this is just a guesstimate.

ERA and BA are estimates

Type A
------
-Lee - was type A last year at 82.4 and his 2006 was comparable to his 2004

Likely Type A
-------------
-Barajas - 32 HRs, 101 RBIs, .255 BA, 820 PA
Ausmus in 04-05 - 8 HRs, 78 RBIs, .253 BA, 890 PA = 69.498 (Type A)
Barajas in 03-04 - 18 HRs, 86 RBIs, .235 BA, 628 PA = 60.504 (Type A)

-Matthews - 36 HRs, 134 RBIs, .280 BA, 1216 PA
Lew Ford in 04-05 - 22 HRs, 125 RBIs, .280 BA, 1248 PA = 69.296 (Type A)
Kotsay in 03-04 - 22 HRs, 101 RBIs, .290 BA, 1214 PA = 67.250 (Type A)
