Contract Crowdsourcing 2020-21: Ballot 10 of 10

Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent offseasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating a contract-crowdsourcing project, the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowd to better understand and project the 2020-21 free-agent market.

This year, we’ve added a few new features to the ballots based on reader feedback. You now have the option to indicate that a player will only receive a minor-league contract, or won’t receive one at all. We’ve elected to show averages from the 2017-2019 seasons so that this year’s shortened slate doesn’t skew the numbers, but we’ve also included 2020 stats as a point of recent reference. 2020 salary figures represent players’ pre-pandemic contract amounts. Statistics are prorated to full season where noted; the projected WAR figures are from the first cut of the 2021 Steamer600 projections.

Below are ballots for eight of this year’s free agents — in this case, yet another group of pitchers.

2 General questions about the RosterResource – Free Agent Tracker and the Crowd Sourcing. (Not complaining or rushing, just trying to get an understanding of the timing. )

– How long before the Crowd Source Results get added to the Free Agent Tracker?

– Also, when will the Projected WAR on the Tracker be fixed/updated? (Marcus Stroman at 0; Michael Wach at -0.2 per 180 IP, but 1.1 on the Tracker, etc)

Thank you.

Looks like WAR has been fixed….or is in process.
