BP Unfiltered: '32 Predictions' Crowd Answers
by
BP Staff

On Glenn Burke's third claim to fame.

On Effectively Wild the other day, I attempted to find the worst pinch-runner of all-time. This is not to be confused with Michael Baumann’s search for the worst runners who made pinch-running appearances. Rather, I sought the worst pinch-runner of the subset of players who pinch-ran often enough that we’d consider pinch-running to be part of their value to a team, one of the skills listed on their resumes. Specifically, players in the top 500 all-time in pinch-running appearances.

What others are learning from the Annual

Several sites that belong to our friends over at SB Nation have published articles noting 10 things they've learned from Baseball Prospectus 2016. We thought it'd be helpful to have each of those links in one place, for those who like to browse beyond their own team:

Assessing the roster decisions that Mr. Burns and his right-hand man made.

If you’re reading this, there’s a chance you grew up as a nerd. I don’t mean that in a derogatory sense, not in the least. I grew up a self-described “baseball nerd” and I know plenty of others who did as well. Often, with this sort of nerdery came other nerdy interests, such as comic books, video games, and science fiction. But on rare occasion, our interests intertwine in a way that’s particularly satisfying.

What one small decision might tell us about the people who make it.

Over at Fox Sports, I wrote about the patterns that show up in different HOF voter types. Like, people who vote for Bonds almost always also vote for Clemens. That’s the obvious one, but there are all sorts of other interesting ways you can predict who a voter will vote for based on who else they voted for. Go read The Three People You Meet In Hall of Fame Voting.

A bit more on Dylan Bundy's slide.

In the process of researching for my recent article on Dylan Bundy’s injuries and development I was able to get some quotes from Kyle Boddy of Driveline Baseball that didn’t make the final piece. While they weren’t published with the article, I felt they were important to provide context around how Kyle trains players at his facility, and what his thoughts were more generally around mechanical tweaks.
