My very amateurish work as a statistician turned out to be pretty on the money, if I do say so. A few weeks ago, at the Major League Baseball All-Star Break, I took a look at which teams paid proportionally the least—and the most—for their wins. Seeing as cheapskates are always concerned with value and wise spending, the idea was to figure out what clubs is getting the most bang for their bucks.
Using my desktop calculator, I came up with the Florida Marlins as the team paying the least per win. Well, today the WSJ does some much fancier math than I did, but it comes to the same result: The Marlins get the most bang for their bucks.
