Bret Sayre, Mike Gianella and George Bissell take a deep dive into current fantasy baseball topics.

The best players we didn't mention in this year's book.

Baseball has an affinity for awards with names, dating back to the Chalmers Award. The predecessor of the Most Valuable Player Award, the Chalmers Award was named after a car company, Chalmers Automobile, and was awarded annually from 1910 to 1914, with the inaugural award fomenting one of the biggest controversies in the game’s history. There have been a number of other awards named after prominent players. The Cy Young Award dates back to 1956 and, true to its namesake, has often been awarded to the pitcher with the most wins and the 60th best ERA. The Roberto Clemente Award, named after the Pirates outfielder and humanitarian, honors the player “that shows the most sportsmanship and kindness,” including Pete Rose (1976), Steve Garvey (1981), Sammy Sosa (1998), and Curt Schilling (2001). The Hank Aaron Award has been given to the top hitter in each league since 1999, and it’s named after the non-detestable player with the most career home runs. And, of course, the Silver Slugger award, given to the top hitters at each position in each league, is named for PECOTA developer/Baseball Prospectus writer/mover-on to bigger things Nate Silver.

Take it to the bank, assuming your bank isn't underwater due to rising ocean levels.

The main takeaway from this is probably that there are going to be some amazing pennant races in our lifetimes, knock on wood. The other takeaway is that I must be an amazing prognosticator if I'm good enough to put these out now.
