I wonder if you sabermetrically

I wonder if you sabermetrically analyzed the Schilling addition, it’s impact on the staff ERA, and then sadded A-Rod and a middling second player and subtracted Manny and Nomar, and calculated runs scored/runs allowed differential from last year to hypothetical next (does that make any sense), where would you be? My point is that yes, you are right, the A-Rod deal goes far beyond sabermetrics (local and national marketing, tv numbers, licensing, curse-exorcising, etc.), but I also wouldn’t be surprised if Theo’s crunched the numbers and recognized that such a deal would have little sabermetric downside as well.
