Could someone explain Matt Sussman's votes for AL MVP and CY Young to me please? Price is his MVP but not the Cy Young choice?
Michael
11/10
I don't understand Matt Sussman's ballot. How could David Price be the #1 AL player of the year, but the #2 AL pitcher of the year? Still, when one averages 39 ballots, these quirks largely become irrelevant.

I'm also on the Matt Sussman explaining his ballot bandwagon.

Matt Sussman's vote for David Price as AL-MVP is indefensible. Most of his counting stats are down from the last two years, and his tenure in Detroit was unremarkable. Yeah, yeah, Trout fell over backward trying to make one catch, but really, be serious...
JHGrimm

What follows is almost certainly not Sussman's real rationale, but it's a rationale that parallel-universe Sussman might have had. Sussman's ballot was a critique of the dialogue surrounding the MVP ballot. The current dialogue prefers hitters to pitchers because they're on the field more. But - but! - this is an age where even starters are relatively better at preventing runs than in the past, an age in which hitters are less effective than in the past. So, clearly, SOME pitcher somewhere should be recognized as player of the year for their exemplary efforts in ruining baseball. Which AL pitcher? Sure, you could say Felix or Kluber for the value they added to their team, but here's where Sussman's acidic wit comes into play. The current dialogue surrounding the position player/pitcher selection is flawed because it privileges playing time over value added. To critique this, Sussman selected Price, the pitcher who threw more innings than any other major-leaguer, as the Player of the Year (the analogue for MVP). Yet the fact that Sussman didn't recognize him for Pitcher of the Year establishes this award as a truth-teller, which states that while Price did pitch more innings than anyone else, he was still less valuable in terms of actual value added to the team. In doing so, he clearly demonstrates the flaws in the existing dialogue of 'this player must be on the field to be valuable. This sets up a parallel with Greek Drama, in which the Player of the Year rhetoric is represented by the foolish myopia of mortals, when the Deus ex Machina, the Pitcher of the Year voting, descends to speak divine truths to the people and correct them their errors. It is a parallel that is both primally compelling and totally summoned from thin air. What you have read is Sussman's fictional rationale for his voting.

I was gonna say "my interpretation of the MVP is that it goes to the best Detroit Tiger who isn't Mike Trout," but this works too

Four voters left Clayton Kershaw completely off the ballot for NL Player of the Year. They should be fired. Seriously. R.J. Anderson voted Jayson Werth as the third best player in the NL. I struggle to comprehend that, whether one wants to go by old stats ( .296, 16 HR, 82 RBI), or new (he didn't break the top ten in bWAR or fWAR). I would love to hear Mr. Anderson's explanation for his vote.
mandamin
11/10
Well, you just called for him to be fired for having an opinion that's different from yours, so I wonder whether that explanation is forthcoming. (Werth was 4th in WPA, so that may have had something to do with it.) FWIW, if I were still voting in this thing there's no way I'd list a pitcher on the POY ballots. It makes no sense. If you've got two major awards and one is exclusively for the best pitcher, the other should exclude pitchers. Obviously. The fact that, decades ago, the BBWAA made the mistake of not explicitly forbidding an MVP vote for pitchers in no way *requires* voters to abandon common sense and vote for a pitcher.
Dodger300
11/10
You don't know who R. J. Anderson voted for down-ballot. He could have easily voted for Kershaw. However, he was the only one out of 39 voters who found a place anywhere on his ballot for Werth, let alone third over-all, so I'm inviting him to provide his explanation. I did not call for anyone to be fired for having a different opinion than me. Rather, it takes a lot of arrogance to knowingly skew the results of an award by making up ones own rule as to who is eligible for an award when that rule does not exist. 90% of these voters had Kershaw on their ballot. 10% made up some "rule" that doesn't exist. It couldn't be more clear which group acted professionally and which did not. I have no more respect for someone who follows a fictional "rule" to leave pitchers off the ballot here than I do for Hall-of-Fame voters who intentionally leave players off the ballot because they don't want to take the chance that anyone ever receives a unanimous vote.

So Matt Sussman and Matt Kory are the designated trolls paid to generate comments?

Who would have expected that on the whole, BBWAA voters are more progressive and inclusive than Baseball Prospectus staff voters? Of course, only 10% of the BP voters were so narrow-minded that they willfully left a pitcher off of their ballot for Player of the Year. That means the other 90% should not be tarred by the company they keep. But the four who invented a fictional rule which skewed the results should reflect on how indefensible it is refuse to recognize that pitcher is also baseball player. And some years a pitcher is the best player in the league, just as the BBWAA voters decided this time.

Actually, there is a criteria in the BBWAA guidelines for the award that does allow for interpretation that pitchers "shouldn't" win the award. http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/08/29/here-are-the-mvp-voting-criteria/ I'm not one of the BP voters who excluded Kersh from my ballot, but based on the criteria the BBWAA has put out for the award, it is perfectly reasonable to do so.

I appreciate the dialogue, Mike, so I read the article that you linked to. Since there is nothing said about pitchers or players, I assume that you are referring to the point "(1.) Actual value of a player to his team that is, strength of offense and defense." Please correct me if I'm wrong. Of course, a given player's contribution solely on one side of the ball can be greater than another player's contribution on both offense and defense, so I see nothing that precludes pitchers from winning the award. Moreover, that article links to another in which Jack O'Connell, Secretary/Treasurer of the BBWAA, details the MAP guidelines sent to the voters. He specifically states "The writers must also keep in mind that all players are eligible for MVP, including pitchers and designated hitters." And finally, the proof is in the pudding. Pitchers, both starters and relievers, do win the MVP award from time to time.
