MLB Shutout Survivor 2015: Which Team Do You Have Last To Be Blanked This Year?
Last Year the D’Backs, A’s, Braves and Cubs were the 1st teams to be blanked before March was even over. To their credit, Arizona was in their 3rd game while the others were in their season openers. Read the rest of this entry
It is time for the Sunday Request!
Just in time for the opening of the season, I make my official picks. And remember, my pick for the AL East comes with a gigantic asterisk.
It is the LET’S GET THE SEASON STARTED! episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
A whole new season of WOB (Who Owns Baseball) begins tonight.
As with the two previous seasons, I will select the best AL and NL pitcher and hitter on a winning team and award them with a WOB.
As I adjusted last year, the top performance on a losing team will be awarded a 1/2 WOB at my discretion.
The results will be tabulated here at MLB Reports and the 4 highest totals will win the title of “Owning Baseball.”
Last year Andrew McCutchen, Clayton Kershaw, Felix Hernandez and Mike Trout were the winners. Kind of hard to argue with those results.
Sometimes the results are purely statistical. Other times the WOB will be awarded with some context attached. A 2 hit game off of an elite pitcher is more impressive than a 3 hit game off of a below average pitcher.
I get the sole vote, but if you have any ideas of who should Own Baseball for the day, send it out to either my Twitter feed (@SullyBaseball) or use the hashtag #WOB .
And as always, if you do not like my methodology, please feel free to do your own stat for 162 games.
Let’s get the season started and see who owns baseball for 2015!
