Contract Crowdsourcing 2018-19: Ballot 6 of 7

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 eight of this year’s free agents — all of them relievers, in this case. Numbers are prorated to full season where noted. Projected WAR figures from final update of 2018 Steamer forecast.





Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.

“Value these relievers”

Good luck everyone…

I had every one of them getting one year, and the average salary for the group barely over $3 million. Which is almost certainly way below what they’ll actually get, but I just can’t bring myself to see any of these guys as valuable pieces. Relievers that you can trust in high leverage situations are very valuable, these guys aren’t those relievers.

That’s not really the point of this exercise.

“What contract would you offer these players?” would be kind of a funny one, though. I guess I could scrape up a few sawbucks if I just somehow REALLY needed a bullpen of my own.
