BtB Sabermetric Writing Awards: Nominations for Best Commentary Article

New, 21 comments

The original post describing this project can be found here.

Please use the comments of this post to nominate articles for the "Best Sabermetric Commentary Article" award.  Here is the description for this category:

Short sabermetric articles with fairly minimal research beyond, for example, looking up some numbers in an established resource. These are often (but not always) short opinion pieces providing a sabermetric angle on current events in baseball. The difference between commentaries and applied research is effort and depth. The difference between commentaries and review articles is scope of coverage.

These are probably the most commonly written sabermetric article type on the internet, so the issue here may be narrowing things down to the best of the year.  Nominate them below by replying, and please use the following format for clarity:

Title & Author: [in reply subject line]
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 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!
