I really want to argue for Pujols and especially Rolen as a value pick salary wise (because IMO that should be part of it and is always overlooked ie A-Rod), but the Giants truly are just Schmidt, Bonds, and a bunch of utility players compared to STL. It's a testament to Bonds' ability that the Giants could even sniff the pennant race all year.
Well said. With regards to what the salary thing, I have an interesting anecdote:
My friend (a moneyball freak) found this site (sorry, I dont know the url) where you plug in a player's moneyball stats and his salary, and it tells you how much that player is over- or under-payed. According to that site, Bonds is underpayed by about $15 million.
