A Whole New Season Of WOB (Who Owns Baseball) Begins Tonight.

WOB equals "WHO OWNED BASEBALL" Yesterday #WOB

WOB equals “WHO OWNED BASEBALL” Yesterday #WOB

A whole new season of WOB (Who Owns Baseball) begins tonight.

As with the three 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 2 years ago, 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 Joey Votto, Clayton Kershaw, Dallas Keuchel 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 2016!
