Winner of the 2017 SABR Analytics Conference Research Award for "Contemporary Baseball Commentary."

Over the weekend BP's own Meg Rowley received the 2017 SABR Analytics Conference Research Award for "Contemporary Baseball Commentary." The winning article, originally published on May 26, 2016, is re-printed below.

The Texas Rangers are getting a new ballpark. We’re used to thinking about the stadium question in terms of tax dollars, and it is an obviously smart way to approach it because of all the things tax dollars turn into that aren’t baseball. Tax dollars are schools and roads and recycling bins, and their allocation is a collective expression of what is important to us, or ought to be. It’s an exceptionally boring way of declaring that most of us like this thing more than this other thing, not merely as sports fans or consumers, but as citizens and parents and people. So when the Arlington City Council voted to approve a master plan for a new stadium for the Texas Rangers, they kicked off a process by which voters will decide if they like air conditioned baseball more than whatever else you can buy with $500 million. Like recycling bins or public transit or a comical number of two-foot-long hot dogs. We’re used to thinking of this question in that way, and it is a good way to think about it.

Kris Bryant gets a big raise from the Cubs, and the Tigers and Braves go in search of outfield help.

Bryant breaks Trout's record

Last week, the Red Sox gave Mookie Betts a 2017 contract worth $950,000. While the runner-up in the AL MVP voting came just short of Mike Trout’s record $1 million pre-arbitration contract renewal back in 2014, the NL MVP winner ended up breaking Trout’s record this week. Jon Heyman is reporting that Kris Bryant will be paid $1.05 million by the Cubs for the 2017 season, which is now the new record for pre-arbitration salary.

San Francisco's rotation battle, injured stars returning, and Scott Kazmir is hurting again.

Giants' fifth starter battle is clash of opposites

The battle for the Giants’ last rotation spot is shaping up to be a classic of the genre: the veteran versus the rookie. Matt Cain and Ty Blach are the two pitchers vying to be the team’s fifth starter, and Monday saw both of them in action—with Blach taking over for Cain in the fourth inning and allowing an inherited runner to score. After the outing, manager Bruce Bochy noted that the rotation spot belongs to Cain if he’s healthy. But the past few years have shown that the if there is a rather important qualifier for the 32-year-old, who has spent much of the last three seasons on the disabled list and hasn’t passed the 90-inning mark in that time.

Abad foregoes camp competition for World Baseball Classic
