Shocking News! Pujols Still No. 1!

Yesterday was a big day for nerds like me, as Baseball Prospectus rolled out THE NEW PECOTAs. You have to be a BP subscriber to dig into the numbers for yourself, but as a public service I will present 2011’s most valuable players:

↵

1. Albert Pujols

↵

2. Ryan Braun
↵3. Hanley Ramirez
↵4. Troy Tulowitzki
↵5. Alex Rodriguez

↵

And that space after Pujols is meant to suggest the massive gap between his WAR and everyone else’s. Just one more little tidibit: Brian McCann edges Joey Votto for 11th place on the list.
