Backed by undervalued, BABS-supported performances from players like Jesse Winker, J.D. Martinez and Charlie Morton, the Broad Assessment Balance Sheet (BABS) helped bring home a title in the LABR national experts league (12-team mixed). It was my first LABR title since 2001, though it was only the fourth time I’ve competed since then.

Here was my draft analysis piece from last March. Early next year, I’ll review this title run in more depth and describe how BABS helped, with an eye toward 2022 lessons.

More important — how did your teams do? Congratulations to those of you who took home a title as well. Hopefully BABS helped.

The database with final BABS ratings is now posted.

I go into hibernation now, as the writing of the 36th annual Baseball Forecaster begins.

This winter, we’ve got a few enhancements on the drawing board for BABS, and a few new additions to next season’s BABS Draft Plan. It all begins in late January. Stay tuned.

Have a great off-season! Stay warm and safe, please.
