How fitting that in the “Year of the Pitcher” we would be tasked with casting a ballot for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s Walter Johnson Award, choosing the top pitcher of the season for the National League.

I have had a hard enough time keeping up with with the Cardinals in late 2010 and into the off-season much less trying to watch much “other” baseball.  Thankfully, the tools at the disposal of an otherwise occupied blogger (FanGraphs, Baseball-Reference, Twitter) are more than enough to formulate the PH8 ballot for the BBA National [...]

As part of a Baseball Bloggers Alliance Project, Josh, Andrew and I cast our ballots for the 2010 National League All-Star team. In order to keep things simple, two out of three votes was a lock, no need for further discussion. We managed to lock up all but one outfield position in that voting manner. [...]
