Please use the comments of this post to nominate articles for the "Best Sabermetric Researcher or Writer" award. Here is the description for this category:
The best sabermetric writer and/or researcher of the year. Define as you wish, though the individual should be nominated based on sabermetric writing and/or research contributions this year.
I expect that this will be a difficult category, because we have so many excellent writers/researchers that are part of our community. And there are many different types of writers--those who simply take a sabermetric slant to the day's events, and those who dig deep into databases to find new insights. Who do you think are the best in the business (be they professional or amateur)? Nominate them below by replying, and please use the following format for clarity:
Nominee: [in reply subject line]
Link: [do what you can, but the best link would be to a page that contains links to many of the author's works]
Comment: [one sentence description of why you think this individual should be considered]
You may nominate more than one individual (including yourself), but please try to be somewhat selective (i.e. don't post links to three-dozen people you think 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 someone 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 someone!
