Several of the Baseball Prospectus writers have been admitted into the BBWAA, which means they will be able to vote on the Hall of Fame, the MVP Award, and the Cy Young Award, among other privileges.
Many of these writers are my writing friends, including Rob Neyer, Keith Law, Christina Karl, and Will Carroll, who has been one of my staunchest supporters since I started OBM almost six years ago.
Congratulations to all of them, and here’s hoping this is the beginning of the BBWAA becoming ever more inclusive. Bill James, for one, should be on their radar.
Hat tip to David Pinto, who also should be on the list.
