The 100 most powerful people in MLB

I’m not sure what to make of this block.

49. Sean Forman

The founder of Baseball-Reference.com, the most complete source of baseball statistics on the Internet. MLB executives, as well as writers, broadcasters and fans rely heavily on the database Forman – and his company Sports Reference—has collected and maintained since 2000. One of the site’s major contributions to the sabermetric revolution is its efforts to roll all of a player’s contributions into a single, quantifiable number: Wins Above Replacement (WAR).

50. Pedro Martinez

The second Dominican elected to the Hall of Fame, Martinez has remained a visible presence in the game as an analyst for TBS and the MLB Network and as special assistant for the Boston Red Sox. He also released an autobiography in 2015, the year he entered the Hall. Martinez is the pitching version of David Ortiz, a widely admired figure in the U.S. and Latin America.

51. Ken Rosenthal

Known to the general public as the insightful but unassuming bow-tied dugout reporter and interviewer for Fox’s MLB broadcasts, Rosenthal doubles as a deadly accurate and accountable must-follow source for inside-baseball scoops and trends. Nicknamed “Robothal” in some circles for his tireless and comprehensive reporting, especially before the trade deadline and during the winter meetings, Rosenthal smoothly negotiates the contemporary media landscape across multiple platforms despite output that reflects a dogged pursuit of information.

Heyman: Power Ranking All 30 MLB Teams

The nice part about all the rankings at the start of the year is they are always completely wrong.
