SABR Analytics Awards: Contemporary Baseball Analysis


Russell Carleton, “N=1,” Baseball Prospectus 2014: The Essential Guide to the 2014 Season, January 2014.

Jay Jaffe, “The Case of the Disappearing Slugger: Where Did MLB’s Power Go?” SI.com, September 3, 2014.

Harry Pavlidis and Dan Brooks, “Framing and Blocking Pitches: A Regressed, Probabilistic Model,” Baseball Prospectus, March 3, 2014.

Jon Roegele, “The Effects of Pitch Sequencing,” The Hardball Times, November 24, 2014.

Jeff Sullivan, “Alex Gordon Barely Had a Chance,” FanGraphs, October 30, 2014.

I plowed through these, which took some effort.  I'll probably vote for the first one.  As I recall, it was the least dense.  There are two more groups, each with five nominees:

Contemporary Baseball Commentary

Historical Analysis/Commentary

I hope to finish them in time to vote.

SABR Analytics Awards: anyone may vote through February 16, 2015.  Tuesday, February 10, 2015
