Contract Crowdsourcing 2021-22: Ballot 10 of 11

Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent seasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating a contract crowdsourcing project, with the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowd to better understand and project the 2021-22 free-agent market.

In recent years, we’ve added a few 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. Numbers are prorated to full season where noted. The projected WAR figures are from the first cut of the 2022 Steamer600 projections.

Below are ballots for seven of this year’s free agents — in this case, a group of starting pitchers.

Greinke is the most interesting of this bunch to me.

If 0.2 WAR is the over/under, I’m taking the over. As far as what kind of contract he gets, I have absolutely no idea.

He’s going to be in line for one of those one year deals between $5M and $10M. If I had to guess, I’d say the Astros give to him and he takes it since he apparently really likes living in a state with no income tax. Maybe he’d consider the Phillies or Tigers (for similar reasons).
