The staff can't wait to see what these hitters and pitchers have in store in 2014.

Our picks for the playoff races and major awards this season.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting.

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.).

What we wrote about a retiring pitcher-turned-hitter and a retiring hitter-turned-pitcher in BP annuals from 1999 through 2014.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

Last week, both Rick Ankiel and Guillermo Mota announced their retirements. Both position-switching players appeared in the Baseball Prospectus annual well over 10 times, so as a career retrospective, we've collected the comments our book authors have written about them over the years. As a reminder, annual comments through 2013 are available to BP subscribers on our player cards. Baseball Prospectus 2014 is on sale now.

On Wednesday, Carl Pavano announced his retirement.

What we wrote about two retiring pitchers in BP annuals from 1998 through 2014.

If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

On Friday, Jake Westbrook announced his retirement, and on Sunday, Ryan Dempster announced that he won't pitch in 2014, potentially bringing his career to an end. Both pitchers first appeared in the Baseball Prospectus annual in 1998, and as a career retrospective, we've collected the comments our book authors have written about them over the years. As a reminder, annual comments through 2013 are available to BP subscribers on our player cards. Baseball Prospectus 2014 is on sale now.

What we wrote about Derek Jeter in every BP annual from 1996 to 2014.

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

On Wednesday, Derek Jeter announced his intention to retire after the 2014 season. Like Jeter, the BP annual has been around for 19 seasons, so until his career comes to a complete stop, we can think of no better retrospective than the collection of comments our annual authors (including Joe Sheehan, Steven Goldman, and Ben Lindbergh) have written about him over the years. (Don't worrysomeday, we'll tell you what we think of his defense.) As a reminder, annual comments through 2013 are available to BP subscribers on our player cards. Baseball Prospectus 2014 is on sale now.
