2022: A Season of Milestones and Achievements
From the day when Miguel Cabrera reached his 3,000th hit, the 2022 season became one of milestones and achievements. Albert Pujols wraps up his career with 702 HRs (and we'll be inducting him into the Rotisserie Baseball Hall of Fame this winter). Aaron Judge hits 62 HRs and breaks BABS' power rating. The Dodgers set a modern-day NL record for team wins. And my Mets finished 2nd! (I'm not bitter.)
The stats have finally stopped accumulating and we can take a breath. The final BABS ratings are in. Click here to access the database. Make sure the year is set to 2022 and the Report Type is set to In-Season Rankings (batter or pitcher).
There are some fascinating asset groups to ponder. Andres Gimenez and Trea Turner together? Nick Lodolo in the same group with Gerrit Cole? And as we start thinking about how these groups will shape our draft planning in 2023, we'll also have to consider the potential impact of the new rules.
I will be writing more about that in the Introduction to this year's Baseball Forecaster, available in December. You can place an advanced order now.
Here's hoping you had a successful season. See you in 2023!
