Hopefully you took part in some of our Major League Baseball threads this year (please click here) as we are worked to grow the amount of Major League Baseball discussions on our Message Boards this year.

The criteria for the â€˜most efficientâ€™ teams is combining low â€˜cost per winâ€™ with at least 87 wins (5 games above .500).
Hence, the 5 most efficient teams from the 2010 MLB season are:

2) Texas Rangers (90 winsâ€¦$612,404 per win)
3) Tampa Bay Rays (96 winsâ€¦$748,688 per win)
4) Cincinnati Reds (91 winsâ€¦$795,072 per win)
5) Atlanta Braves (91 winsâ€¦$927,284 per win)
The criteria for the â€˜least efficientâ€™ teams is combining high â€˜costs per winâ€™ with a non-winning season (i.e. 81 or fewer wins). By this criteria, the 5 least efficient teams from the 2010 MLB season are:
1) Chicago Cubs (75 winsâ€¦$1.96 million per win)
2) New York Mets (79 winsâ€¦$1.68 million per win)
3) Seattle Mariners (61 winsâ€¦$1.61 million per win)
