Contract Crowdsourcing 2018-19: Ballot 4 of 7 by Carson Cistulli October 24, 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.

Projected WAR figures from final update of 2018 Steamer forecast.
