Angell turns comic

Roger Angell, writing on the New Yorker site, cracks me up with his article "Stats".

Yes, Cliff Lee had a high UPUBB (Unexpectedly Passing Up Big Bucks), but where does it rank in the history of the game? Greg Maddux did the same in 1993, when the Yankees made him a better (well, more financially lucrative) offer than the Braves, but has anyone done a similar analysis of non-monetary influences on player signing decisions?
