In honor of Miguel Cabrera’s recent close to $300M over 10 year contract I thought it would be interesting to post his career numbers.

Career WAA Value = 74.7

Miguel Cabrera more than qualifies for the Hall of Fame with the numbers he currently has.  It’s possible in 10 years he becomes one of the top 5 players, both batters and pitchers, in MLB history.  A WAA of over 100 puts him on this page’s MLB Greats sidebar.

Note: The searchable career database for this data model is coming soon.  Also coming soon are  real MLB baseball games and I will be updating leader boards on a weekly basis.
