Contract Crowdsourcing 2018-19: Ballot 1 of 7 by Carson Cistulli October 22, 2018 Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent offseasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating this offseason a contract-crowdsourcing project, the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowds to the end of better understanding the 2018-19 free-agent market. Below are links to ballots for 10 of this year’s free agents — in this case, a collection of catchers, first basemen, and second basemen. Numbers are prorated to full season where noted. Projected WAR figures from final update of 2018 Steamer forecast.
