In case you hadn’t heard, The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2013 has hit internet bookshelves. You can read all about it here in Dave Studeman’s post, or you can listen to Carson Cistulli and myself discuss it here on the FanGraphs Audio podcast he posted earlier today. 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 each day this week, 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 Giants and Scutaro Win, as Does Valverde (Sort Of).” Written by THT’s Brad Johnson, it looks at the postseason through the lens of The Hardball Times’ traditional postseason win probability metric, Championships Added. It’s one of the book’s annual articles, and as such it seems like a good place to start. We sort of give away in the title that Marco Scutaro was the 2012 postseason leader in CA, and the attentive playoff viewer will no doubt surmise that Raul Ibanez places high on this list as well — second, in fact. So the question before you, dear reader, is this: Which player finished third overall in the 2012 postseason in Championships Added? Be quick with your answer, and you can win a free copy of THT 13. And if you’re not the lucky winner, don’t forget to check back in with us each day this week! Or, if you’d rather not wait, you can purchase it at the following destinations: – Amazon (in either physical or Kindle form) – Barnes & Noble (in Nook form) – Createspace (also in physical form). We hope to have it up on Apple’s iBooks soon as well.
