Win a Free Copy of THT 2014!

In case you haven’t heard, The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2014 is now available to purchase on ye ole internets. You can find my post on the book here, Dave Studeman’s post on the book here, and listen to Carson Cistulli’s FanGraphs Audio episode with Studes here.

After you’re done consuming those posts, you can buy it from Createspace (where we get the biggest cut of sales), from Amazon (in both print and for the Kindle) and from Barnes & Noble on the Nook.

Because we’re giving folk, and since it’s the beginning of the holiday season and all, we want to give you a chance to win yourself a free copy of the book. So today, tomorrow and Wednesday, we’ll be running a trivia contest based on one of the articles in the book. The first person to post the correct answer in the comments will win a free physical copy of the book (sorry, no free Kindle or Nook versions). It’s just that simple!

Today’s question comes from the article entitled “The Most Storied Postseasons.” In it, Dave Studeman details the 10 most storied postseason careers, using ChampAdded as his metric of choice. Studes ran the list both before and after the 2013 postseason, and there were changes. The question before you today, dear reader, is this:

Which player got bumped off of the 10 most storied postseason career list, and which player played his way onto it during the 2013 postseason?

To win the free copy, you have to get both parts of the answer correct.

Good luck!

        Obligatory post on how I was about to guess that but then decided that I should pretend to be more savvy with my guesses ;_;

        At least now I retain my opportunity to support Fangraphs and THT through a real-money purchase!

    Shane Victorino played his way on and Carlos Beltran was bumped.

    I am confident in the first answer, not so much in the second.

    THT 2014 is available to read on Amazon Prime for free. it counts as the one book a month that you can check out from the Amazon library. it probably gives the lowest percentage back to the authors but if you pay for prime you have already paid for a license to read THT 2014…

    I knew Ortiz, but I was gonna be all clever and say Koufax or some other oldtimer got bumped simply by falling behind in aggregate champ added. Oh, well.

    If notgraphs has taught me anything, its that the answer is always “When Cistulli gets on. Perry gets off.”
