      I'm not sure if this is how the system works either, but i do have a
      minor quibble with your math. your hypothetical player should
      probably be credited for the team's negative margin when he's on the
      bench. so it should be (8.33 - (-1.67), rather than 8.33 + (-1.67),
      making him a +10 asset.
