So, ESPN has created a list ranking all the World Series winners using a series of complicated formulas. The 1939 New York Yankees come out on top. Unfortunately, my interest is in the best teams that didn't win the World Series. If you want to know what it means to be an Atlanta sports fan, just look at that list. Three of the top four teams are 90s Braves teams. In fact, the 1998 Braves are the 2nd best team of all time just short of that Yankees team and ahead of the 1927 Yankees.

Lockdown reading, Doctoring The Numbers: Starting Them Young To view the link you have to Register or Login, To view the link you have to Register or Login

Basically, the author compares every high school hitter that was a Top 100 draft pick from the 1965-1996 to find out market inefficiencies. He basically finds that a 17 year old picked at #100 ends up having the same expected value as an 18 year old picked #24. The numbers basically boil down to this:



Interestingly, this article was written in 2011 so there is no updated data for the past 10 years but the example he uses for that year's draft
Quote:
In the 2011 draft, we had the rare circumstance where two highly-touted high school players, drafted close together, were widely separated by date of birth. With the #5 overall pick, the Kansas City Royals took the first high school hitter in the draft, world-class tools goof Bubba Starling. Three picks later, the Cleveland Indians took the second high school hitter off the board, Florida shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Dozens of articles were written on Starling and Lindor leading up to the draft, but to the best of my knowledge, not one of them made mention of this simple fact: while Starling was born on August 3, 1992 (he actually turned 19 before the signing deadline), Lindor was born on November 14—November 14, 1993. Lindor is more than 15 months younger than Starling and will be younger at the end of next season than Starling was on the day he was drafted.

There are many reasons to think that Starling, despite his advanced age, will meet the formidable expectations placed on him. And speaking as a Royals fan, I hope he does. But if these numbers are even close to being correct, the younger player should have been drafted first. It wouldn’t be the first time.

Baseball's minor leagues canceled their seasons Tuesday because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the head of their governing body said more than half of the 160 teams are in danger of failing without government assistance or private equity injections.

That reminds me, as an update to the Fantasy Leagues :

Yahoo is still showing season start date of 9 July and that it will be 23 weeks long!
Clearly this isn't going to happen, I can see a maximum of 10 weeks, so we will probably ditch our playoffs to allow for more regular season match-ups.

As soon as yahoo update their pages, I'll try to get our drafts restarted.

A couple of participants have expressed doubt that MLB will get any games going, given the state of the outbreak in many states.

I'm gonna be amazed if his season happens. The numbers are trending towards 100,000 people getting sick per day.

Not sure why MLB decided to go with the most eye-searing infographic template to try and explain their Covid-19 plan. There's already 4 Braves players, including Freddie Freeman, that have tested positive. This is gonna be a mess.

I hadn’t heard Freeman had tested positive, and apparently has symptoms too.
