About

XVALsports provides a unique business perspective of professional baseball.  Through the use of advanced statistics and salary data, our XVAL metric highlights players providing “The Best Value in the Game”.  The XVAL metric also provides a “common currency” for the ever popular analysis and discussions regarding player value.  We also have created easy access to each player’s performance (WAR) and salary information along side our XVAL metric.

We believe professional baseball players, as a whole, should make a lot of money.  We enjoy seeing players with large salaries produce big numbers to support those big paychecks.  We love seeing players that perform above their salary level and we join them in their excitement for their next contract.  We even appreciate those players not currently producing above their salary level as they had to perform well enough to have their current contract – we simply wish them success at getting their XVAL back above break-even before the end of the season!
