Today, you will see many a bad ballot go viral. Focus instead on the hundreds of voters who make the HOF what it is.

The drive from Utica to Cooperstown is a bit of a fog. The anticipation of what awaited me and my family is not. It’s what my summer had revolved around for weeks. I don’t remember much else from our trip to upstate New York, but our trek to the National Baseball Hall of Fame will forever be etched in my mind. My dad buying my brother a wooden crimson baseball bat with a Cincinnati Reds insignia on it. (My brother had a few baseball-player obsessions back then, with Eric Davis being first and foremost.) The three of us laughing at a picture of Amos Otis when we walked through the museum—it was an inside joke that I don’t fully remember the origin of. And of course, finally seeing all the plaques of the many legends about whom I’d heard so much—being still too young to have any playing-day memories of any enshrined players. Jim Palmer and Joe Morgan stand out the most, having both been inducted just a few weeks prior. I was 9.

Highlights from the year in team-specific content across our four locals.

The vision of the locals at Baseball Prospectus was always to provide BP-quality writing with a hyper-focus on individual teams, giving fans from those cities a destination site for the best analysis around. With BP Wrigleyville, Bronx, and Boston leading the way in April and Milwaukee joining the fray in late June, the locals not only delivered on that goal, but discovered some brilliant writers along the way. Here’s just a quick sampling of some of the best work from each of the four locals from their first year of existence.

Daisy Cutter: Paying the Unconventional Superstar

6

Sahadev Sharma

The intersection of what the market will bear and what sports talk radio will understand isn't always a pretty place. Just ask J.D. Drew.

When looking back at Theo Epstein’s history—a history that now includes a complete overhaul and turnaround of a moribund Chicago Cubs franchise—unless you’re nitpicking, there’s little to criticize. However, if there is one aspect during Epstein’s run as a general manager in Boston one could pounce on, it’s a somewhat spotty track record with free agents.

With questionable moves from their past likely lingering in the back of their minds—Julio Lugo and Carl Crawford stand out in particular—both Epstein and Jed Hoyer have spent plenty of time in Chicago lamenting the fact that free agency is often looked upon as a ‘necessary evil’ of sorts. Their first big signing on the North Side, Edwin Jackson, stands out as one of their more prominent failings since joining the Cubs organization four years ago. But for the most part, by design, this group has avoided big free-agent signings. That changed last offseason when they made one of the bigger splashes of the winter by snagging Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million deal. The spending has continued this December with the additions of John Lackey, Ben Zobrist, and most recently Jason Heyward.
