Get your prelim in before the playoffs end. Remember, ANYONE can vote in an MMP election.

Here's my prelim ballot. I don't normally include playoffs in my ratings so it likely will stay the same. This is my usual "uber-stat blender" method and available to me for this total was WAR from baseball reference, fangraphs, and baseball gauge as well as Win Shares and WSAB.

Mike Trout in 2019:

April OPS - 1.052
May OPS - 1.032
June OPS - 1.081
July OPS - 1.214
August OPS - 1.034
September OPS - 1.117

League leads in OBP, slugging, OPS and OPS+, intentional walks (of course), adjusted batting runs & wins, offensive win percentage - plus 85% base stealing just for laughs.

To me this seems like a no-brainer, and a test case for why blind adherence to any given 'uber-stat' is likely to produce nonsensical results. But that's just me - YMM of course V.

Y'know, I can be quite tone-deaf at times... Please note that no offense whatsoever was or is intended by my last post, to @lieiam or indeed to any adherent to uber-stats. I may differ with a given methodology, but I always appreciate the analytical rigor - and, of course, the contribution to the general debate.

Staying healthy is a skill, which uber-stats take into account, but obviously the Post #3 & #4 do not. It is pretty clear that inferior could "have more merit" simply by playing more games. Like I said staying healthy is a big deal, and was not mentioned in either of these posts. Trout did not do so well in this metric this season. That should count for something and both Win Shares, WAR, runs created, defensive runs saved all take his lack of playing time into account. I do not believe that this is a weakness or problem with "uber stats". It is certainly not nonsensical to think that Bellinger and Bregman had more merit than Trout in 2019.

Something else the the "uber stats" take into account that the preceding posts haven't is defense:

Bregman 4.8 RS
Bellinger 3.4 RS
Trout -0.3 RS

Trout trails significantly here

Wait. DL - Did you mean that everyone has to put up a prelim before the playoffs ended? Because the playoffs ended tonight, before I read this, and there are almost no prelims up now. Do long-term veterans of the project, like me, have to put up prelims? If so, and for everyone else who'd like to join the project, can the deadline be extended to the end of the World Series? I'm probably getting anxious over nothing, but sometimes it's danger to not get anxious. Thanks for whatever the procedure actually is - Brock
   7. DL from MN Posted: October 21, 2019 at 09:59 AM (#5892459)
No, I meant that people had the opportunity to post a prelim based on just the regular season stats. The election won't end until December 4.

2019 Prelim- AL only

1. Alex Bregman, 3B/SS, Houston Astros
2. Mike Trout, CF, Los Angeles Angels: one of the closest finishes, Bregman needs every bit of his games played advantage plus defensive credit for filling in at short to surpass Trout's big lead in OPS+
3. Justin Verlander, P, Houston Astros
4. Gerrit Cole, O, Houston Astros: even closer than Bregman & Trout with Verlander's small IP advantage outweighing Cole's ERA+ lead
5. Marcus Semien, SS, Oakland Athletics
6. Xander Bogaerts, SS, Boston Red Sox: huge defensive disparity as Semien is +5 fielding while Bogaerts is -21
7. Mookie Betts, RF, Boston Red Sox
8. DJ LeMahieu, 2B/3B, New York Yankees
9. Nelson Cruz, DH, Minnesota Twins
10. Jorge Polanco, SS, Minnesota Twins
11. George Springer, CF/RF, Houston Astros
12. Rafael Devers, 3B, Boston Red Sox: with Bogaerts, Betts and Devers, the offense wasn't the problem in Boston
13. Shane Bieber, Cleveland Indians: for all the talk about Lynn, Minor and Morton, Bieber ended the season as the third best pitcher in the AL
14. Carlos Santana, 1B, Cleveland Indians
15. Mike Minor, P, Texas Rangers

The playoffs aren't over, Brock. We still have this whole World Series thing to go yet.

2019 Prelim- NL only

1. Cody Bellinger, RF, Los Angeles Dodgers: a clear #1 thanks to +26 fielding
2. Christian Yelich, RF, Milwaukee Brewers: not bad for a follow-up campaign
3. Anthony Rendon, 3B, Washington Nationals
4. Ketel Marte, CF/2B, Arizona Diamondbacks: was not expecting this kind of year from Marte
5. Trevor Story, SS, Colorado Rockies: 118 OPS+ and +17 fielding
6. Jacob deGrom, P, New York Mets: 3rd in ERA+, 2nd in IP
7. Hyun-Jin Ryu, P, Los Angeles Dodgers: led the NL in ERA+ with 179
8. Nolan Arenado, 3B, Colorado Rockies
9. Josh Donaldson, 3B, Atlanta Braves
10. Mike Soroka, P, Atlanta Braves
11. Jack Flaherty, P, St. Louis Cardinals

13. Pete Alonso, 1B, New York Mets
14. Ronald Acuna Jr, CF, Atlanta Braves
15. Juan Soto, LF, Washington Nationals

2019 Prelim- Combined

1. Alex Bregman, 3B, Houston Astros
2. Cody Bellinger, RF, Los Angeles Dodgers
3. Mike Trout, CF, Los Angeles Angels: one of the closest finishes, Bregman needs every bit of his games played advantage plus defensive credit for filling in at short to surpass Trout's big lead in OPS+ while Bellinger's amazing defense pushes him into second
4. Christian Yelich, RF, Milwaukee Brewers: not bad for a follow-up campaign
5. Justin Verlander, P, Houston Astros
6. Gerrit Cole, O, Houston Astros: even closer than Bregman & Trout with Verlander's small IP advantage outweighing Cole's ERA+ lead
7. Marcus Semien, SS, Oakland Athletics
8. Anthony Rendon, 3B, Washington Nationals
9. Ketel Marte, CF/2B, Arizona Diamondbacks: was not expecting this kind of year from Marte
10. Trevor Story, SS, Colorado Rockies: 118 OPS+ and +17 fielding
11. Xander Bogaerts, SS, Boston Red Sox: -21 fielding drops him below Semien and Story
12. Jacob deGrom, P, New York Mets: 3rd in NL ERA+, 2nd in IP
13. Hyun-Jin Ryu, P, Los Angeles Dodgers: led the NL in ERA+ with 179
14. Nolan Arenado, 3B, Colorado Rockies
15. Mookie Betts, RF, Boston Red Sox

Wow...! I'm 100% out-voted (at least so far) on Trout for MMP. Fair enough.

I agree with this:
"It is certainly not nonsensical to think that Bellinger and Bregman had more merit than Trout in 2019."

And this:
"Staying healthy is a big deal."

And also, curiously, this:
" It is pretty clear that inferior could 'have more merit' simply by playing more games."
This exactly summarizes my opinion on Bellinger and Bregman's candidacies. It's not that they're not worthy, because they are, but rather that they accumulated more value specifically because they played more games. I regard Trout as much the greater player on a per-game basis, and thus, in my view, the MMP.

But this, I cannot agree with:
"Staying healthy is a skill."

To a certain extent, the possibility of injury can be ameliorated through exercise, diet, stretching, etc. (Just ask Ichiro.) But you can't tell Mantle's drain cover, or Oliva's knees, or Koufax's elbow, or Puckett's glaucoma that health is a "skill". It's the same, in my view, wth Trout's foot.

Now, Andruw Jones's weight, sure, that's a legitimate issue - or Mantle's drinking, as opposed to his drain cover - those are related to behavioural choices. Trout's foot is not. I've seen no evidence that Trout is anything less than 100% dedicated to his health and longevity.

None of this means, of course, that Trout is more valuable than Bregman or Bellinger. That part is just my opinion. But I can't countenance the view that Trout somehow lacks a 'skill' because he needed foot surgery.
   13. Qufini Posted: October 28, 2019 at 12:35 PM (#5895434)
There's a football maxim (at least I first heard it from football commentators): the greatest ability is availability. Whether staying healthy is a skill or not, Bregman and Bellinger's extra games made them more valuable for this season. I still like Trout's chances of being better than either of them next year.

2019 prelim

1) Cody Bellinger - terrific glovework
2) Alex Bregman - filling in at SS helps a lot
3) Mike Trout - best hitter
4) Mike Minor - best regular season pitcher by a small margin
5) Justin Verlander - no postseason credit in the prelim for anyone
6) Jacob deGrom - basically tied with Lynn

8) Ketel Marte - didn't really follow him all year so this was a surprise for me
9) Christian Yelich
10) Gerrit Cole
11) Trevor Story
12) Matt Chapman
13) Stephen Strasburg - got to see him pitch live in person this year
14) Mookie Betts
15) Anthony Rendon

16-20) George Springer, Josh Donaldson, Jack Flaherty, Eduardo Rodriguez, Max Scherzer
21-25) Zack Greinke, DJ LeMahieu, Mike Soroka, Jorge Polanco, Sonny Gray

Ok, here's my first pass. I made adjustments (mostly defense discounting) to 4 different WAR measurements and blended them into a score. Deviations to the score are typically for postseason performance. I also gave close battles to the guy who was more consistent across methods. I gave a catcher bonus that's not reflected in the score number. I'll think this over more over the weekend and respond to comments before posting to the ballot thread next week.
