Via fangraphs.com assessment of player win values - the following two pies represent who contributed to the Indians success in 2008 and 2007.

Obviously it opened up opportunities for guys like Shoppach - but it is somewhat remarkable we didn't pull a Detroit and completely go in the tank. Also note that despite what the pictures suggest, the 2007 pie should be a little larger than the 2008 pie.
