With millions of dollars riding on every player personnel decision, Michael Vlessides’s professional sports solutions are a worthwhile investment.



Salary Arbitration Case Preparation and Presentation

With one of the best winning records in the arbitration realm, Vlessides offers a full range of arbitration services. This includes developing brief outlines and writing full briefs, creating exhibits (including graphs, charts, and tables), and preparing/presenting rebuttal. Vlessides can also evaluate club-prepared briefs and/or exhibits for strengths and weaknesses.



Sabermetric Analysis

Vlessides uses sabermetric analysis to complement your scouts’ efforts to identify the best players for your club. This analysis comprises a player’s college, minor league, and major league performance, relative to other players in the league and the quality of the competition. Allows for more informed decisions when drafting and trading players, or when signing free agents.



Long-Term Contract Analysis
Signing younger players to long-term contracts often makes sense. With millions of dollars riding on every long-term contract, Vlessides can help analyze all your options, so you know you’re negotiating the best deal possible. After providing critical background information, Vlessides will then project the player’s probable worth if his performance I) improves, II) remains the same, or III) declines, examine contracts signed by comparable players at similar points in their careers, and recommend various contract structures.



In-Season Player Tracking
Vlessides’s tracking services allow clubs to follow an individual player’s performance, whether for information purposes alone or to prepare for contract negotiations/salary arbitration. Players are tracked on a per-game, weekly, and monthly basis; relevant print media coverage is collected as well. Allows for increased leverage during contract negotiations, and improved budgeting/payroll projection.



Payroll Evaluation & Projection

Although maintaining the balance between payroll, profitability, and team success is challenging, Vlessides can analyze your club’s current payroll, then project its development into future years. This service allows clubs to identify and address possible shortfalls in revenue stream, and to make proactive decisions with regards to new contract negotiations, contract extensions, and free-agent signings.
