About a month ago I mentioned that Pirates Prospects writer James Santelli was nominated for a SABR Analytics Research Award for his article on the Pirates’ defensive shifts last year. Today, SABR announced James as the winner for the Contemporary Analysis Research Award. James’ article beat out excellent articles from Beyond the Box Score, FanGraphs, Baseball America, and The Washington Post.

Please join me in congratulating James for this outstanding accomplishment. Thanks to everyone who voted for his article. If you haven’t read the now award-winning article, here it is:
