This Post is Going to be a Crainwreck

There are many things to be said about Jesse Crain. Some people like him. Some don’t. For me, it’s not about the untapped potential or the frustration he brings. It’s about the money.

Jesse Crain has been worth 2.5 WAR in his career, with approximately half of that coming in 2006 (1.2). He has been worth 1 WAR from 2007 while getting paid 4.34 million for his services. In my opinion, 4.34 million is to much to pay for 1 extra win over 4 years. As he’s going to be a free agent in 2011, he should not be given a new contract and the Twins should move on with younger arms such as Anthony Slama and Kyle Waldrop. Especially since he’ll be seeking a pay raise. He’ll want more than his current 2 million, with my guess being somewhere around 2.25 million.
