A very short Chop Links today. Three things for you to check out:
Chop-n-Change's very own Will Schaffer took part in the latest MVN roundtable. One question he tackles is which NL division is the toughest. That's difficult -- read what the experts say and make your own mind up. Actually if you aren't a regular MVNer I urge you to spend 20 minutes browsing the site. There is all sorts of cool baseball stuff.
Dave Cameron at USS Mariner has attempted to determine the most valuable players in baseball. He takes into account a number of criteria, one being salary (ie, a very good cheap player is better than a very good expensive one). McCann in #8 and Frenchy is #34 -- Dave doesn't watch the Braves much then!
Baseball Prospectus charts the comings and goings of the NL East in its roster update.
