It is time for one of our favorite annual features, the Anti-Pennant Race, the race for the worst record in baseball. The reward for the “winner” is the first pick in next year’s amateur draft. Last year marked the first season in which the Rays did not win the race, having won the Anti-Pennant in 2006 and 2007.
Without further ado, we present the 4th Annual David Price Sweepstakes* and the race for the top pick in the 2010 draft!
Notes on the Anti-Pennant Race...
- With the Pirates win yesterday, the Nationals clinched a tie for the worst record in baseball. And thanks to the tiebreaker they own (worst record in 2008), they have won the 2010 David Price Sweepstakes and the top pick in next year’s draft.
*In 2006, the top pick was not a sure thing, but David Price was the clear favorite. Without an obvious favorite for the 2008 draft, we decided to name this feature after the inaugural namesake and have kept it ever since.
