Some players have great years before free agency. Some have bad years. Some players' production regresses after signing big contracts. Others' doesn't. What the contract year myth does is take perfectly normal variations in a player's year-to-year productivity and attach an easily understood narrative to it.


"Subjective" narratives are like paranoia; often they're more valid that you would expect.
