    October 14, 2014: Boston Chapter Weighs in for the BBA’s Goose Gossage Award.

    Posted by Christine E. at 9:19 am in Baseball,BBBA Comment (1)

    BaseballBloggersAlliance-thumb-200x155-12545The Goose Gossage Award is awarded by the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA) to the Best Reliever in each League; this year, the Boston Chapter has selected Yankee reliever Dellin Betances. Born and raised in New York City, the 26 years old right-hander, fared very well in his first full season in the bigs, going 5-0, with a 1.40 ERA, 147 strikeouts, and a WHIP of .778 in 70 appearances.

    Looking like an ALCS matchup, Kansas City’s Wade Davis and Orioles Zach Britton placed 2nd and 3rd in the voting, with KC’ Greg Holland, Orioles’ Andrew Miller, and Tampa Bay’s Jake McGee rounding out the mix

    My personal selections for the Goose Gossage Award were Dellin Betances (shocking, I know), Wade Davis, and Andrew Miller…

    About the BBA: The Baseball Bloggers Alliance was formed in the fall of 2009 to encourage cooperation and collaboration between baseball bloggers of all major league teams as well as those that follow baseball more generally. As of this writing, the organization consists of 215 blogs spanning nearly all of 30 major league squads, a youth chapter for bloggers under the age of 18, fantasy, historical, miscellaneous,and general baseball writing.

    Coming up: Over the next couple weeks, we will be hearing from The Boston Chapter, as well as the rest of the BBA as to their selections for the Postseason Awards in both the AL and the NL.

    We will also get to see how we match up against the selections of the Baseball Writer as well…
