The 2016 edition of the "New York Times" Bestselling Guide Welcome to The Show! After 20 All-Star seasons, the creators of this, the 21st edition of the industry-leading Baseball Prospectus annual, could have been content to rest on their laurels. Instead, "Baseball Prospectus 2016" contains significant improvements along with the usual key stat categories, player predictions and insider-level commentary that readers expect from Baseball Prospectus annual guide. "Baseball Prospectus 2016" once again provides fantasy players and insiders alike with prescient PECOTA projections, which "Sports Illustrated" has called perhaps the game s most accurate projection model. Still, stats are just numbers if you don t see the larger context, and Baseball Prospectus brings together an elite team of analysts to provide the definitive look at all thirty teams their players, their prospects and their managers to explain away flukes, hot streaks, injury-tainted numbers and park effects. Nearly every major-league team has sought the advice of current or former Prospectus analysts, and readers of "Baseball Prospectus" 2016 will understand what all those insiders have been raving about. In a book that sports personality Ken Tremendous calls The tip of the nerd spear, the team at Baseball Prospectus is proud to bring the following improvements to the 2016 Annual: Two full years of projections PECOTA lines for 2016 and 2017 Historical Peak MPH added for major-league pitchers Deserved Run Average (DRA) added for major-league pitchers cFIP added for major-league and minor-league pitchers Pitcher WARP redesigned, utilizing DRA and cFIP for all pitchers Revised cFIP-driven PECOTA pitching projections Catcher-specific defensive stats for all catchers Double-A and above Outfield assists and catcher defense integrated in FRAA and WARP Ballpark schematic and wall height study for every stadium Hit List, finance, and farm system ranking graphs for each team Every organization s key front office personnel and Baseball Prospectus alumni identified"

Recent advances in baseball statistical analysis have made it possible to assess the totality of contribution of each player to team success or failure. Using the metric Wins Above Average (WAA)--the number of wins that the 2016 Red Sox, for example, added because they had Mookie Betts in right field, instead of an average player--the author undertakes a fascinating review of major league baseball from 1901 through 2016. The great teams are analyzed, underscoring why they were successful. The great players of each generation are identified using simple metrics--from Ty Cobb through Ted Williams and Willie Mays, Rickey Henderson and Barry Bonds, and pitchers from Christy Mathewson to Roger Clemens. The importance of pitching is found to be vastly exaggerated. Many Hall of Fame pitchers (and some hitters) achieved immortality almost entirely on the backs of their teammates, while a few over-qualified players still await induction. Focusing on today's rosters, the WAA assessment shows that the game is threatened by an unprecedented shortage of great players.

"Ever since Justin Morneau beat out Derek Jeter and a cast of thousands for the MVP, I have been waiting for exactly this book."--Rob Neyer, author of Rob Neyer's Big Book of Baseball series. From its colorful beginnings more than a century ago, baseball's annual Most Valuable Player Award has become the most prestigious (and contentious) individual honor in the sport. No accolade means more to players, fans or the media. No other award can claim a voting history so rich in alleged snubs, grudges, conspiracies and incompetence. Examining the most controversial ballots, this book attempts to settle some arguments and answer some compelling questions: Which of the so-called "worst MVPs" holds up to modern statistical analysis? Who cast the single worst vote in MVP history? Does racial bias influence the vote? Who really deserved the award in a given year?
