Contract Crowdsourcing 2023-24: Ballot 6 of 11

Joe Rondone/The Republic/USA TODAY NETWORK

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 2023-24 free agent market.

In recent years, we’ve added a few features to these 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. If there is a player option, team option, or opt out in a player’s contract, you’ll be able to indicate whether you think he will remain with his current team or become a free agent. Numbers are prorated to full season where noted. The projected WAR figures are from the first cut of the 2024 Steamer600 projections.

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

This was a fun one. Don’t have a great grasp on a few of these guys. I guessed:
5-150 for Snell; but i could see him getting 6+.
6-144 Nola
2-25 Giolito
4-80 Monty
3-72 Gray
