BtB Sabermetric Writing Awards: Nominations for Best Applied Research Article or Project

The original post describing this project can be found here.

Please use the comments of this post to nominate articles for the "Best Applied Research Article or Project Award."  Here is the description for this category:

Research that takes established sabermetric principles and applies them to help understand a specific case (typically a player, a team, a transaction, etc). The difference between novel and applied research is newness of approach and scope of impact.

Please take a moment and think about what you think are the best examples of studies that, while perhaps not the most innovative, make great use of established methods to help answer questions about players, teams, etc.  Nominate them below by replying, and please use the following format for clarity:

Title & Author: [title & author]
Link: [self explanatory]
Comment: [one sentence description of why you think the article should be considered]

You may nominate more than one article (including your own stuff), but please try to be somewhat selective (i.e. don't post a link to three-dozen articles you thought were good...pick you favorite two or three).  Also, please make a separate reply for each nomination. 

Finally, please remember that all nominations must be "seconded" to advance to the next stage.  Therefore, even if you can't think of an original article to nominate off-hand, please look through the comments and see if there are recommendations that you would endorse.  If so, just reply and write "seconded!"  Discussion of a nomination's merits are also very welcome.

Thanks for taking the time to nominate an article!
