It's always a mistake to pay a guy based on just postseason performances though. Yet, many GMs seem to make that mistake.

After seeing the contracts of Angel Pagan, BJ Upton, and the appears the price of mediocrity in baseball has risen. Suddenly, the Alex Rios contract doesn't appear to be as inflated as it was a couple years ago.
