BTP: Box-Toppers points
What are those numbers after players' names?

Kershaw leads all players in Box-Toppers points over 2012-2017 with 147.2, ahead of Scherzer, in second place with 128.9.

Scherzer meanwhile leads all players in Box-Toppers points over 2016 and 2017 with 50.7, ahead of Kershaw, in second place with 47.5.

(See the chart below for Top 100 players of 2016-17 and 2012-17.)

Kershaw has been Box-Toppers most dominant player in recent years but that dominance, while present, is slightly less than it was a year ago. From 2011 to 2016, Kershaw placed first or second in Box-Toppers points each year (first in 2011, 2013 and 2014, second in 2012, 2015 and 2016). But in 2017, Kershaw ranked third among all players with 23.1 points (trailing Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale’s 25.1 and Scherzer’s 25.0).

At the end of the 2016 season, Kershaw’s rolling six-year total (from 2011 to 2016) was greater than his rolling six-year total this year (from 2012 to 2017)—150.2 vs. 147.2. After 2016, he led Scherzer, in second in the rolling-six year total (2011 to 2016) by 38.9 points (Scherzer had 111.3 points from 2011 to 2016). But this season, Kershaw’s lead over Scherzer from 2012 to 2017 is less—just 18.3 (Scherzer has 128.9 points from 2012 to 2017).

Kershaw’s rolling six-year total dropped from 150.2 at the end of 2016 to 147.2 at the end of 2017 because he his 2011 point total (26.1, ranked first) was more than his 2017 total (23.1, ranked third).

Here are Kershaw’s Box-Toppers points for the past six seasons:

  • 2012: 20.8, second among all players, first among NL pitchers.
  • 2013: 21.7, first among all players.
  • 2014: 31.5, first among all players, tied for the fourth-highest single-season total since Box-Toppers tracking began.
  • 2015: 25.7, second among all players, second among NL pitchers, tied for the 20th-highest single-season total since Box-Toppers tracking began.
  • 2016: 24.4, second among all players, second among NL pitchers.
  • 2017: 23.1, third among all players, second among NL pitchers.

Box-Toppers’ 2017 overall leader, Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale (25.1 Box-Toppers points), finishes fourth among players over the past two seasons (38.5 points) and third among players over the past six seasons (106.5), which is most among American League players from 2012 to 2017.

Only three players have 100 or more points over the past six seasons—Kershaw (147.2), Scherzer (128.9) and Sale (106.5).

Indians pitcher Corey Kluber leads AL players in Box-Toppers points over the past two seasons with 43.2 points, third among all players over 2016 and 2017. Kluber ranks seventh among all players from 2012 to 2017 with 87.4.

Three pitchers who had subpar seasons in 2017 still rank in the top 10 in Box-Toppers points over the past six seasons (from 2012 to 2017):

  • Madison Bumgarner of the Giants ranks sixth with 88.0 Box-Toppers points from 2012 to 2017, despite earning only 2.0 points in 2017. (Bumgarner was out much of the season after injuring himself in a dirt biking accident.)
  • Felix Hernandez of the Mariners ranks eighth with 82.4 points, despite earning only 2.7 points in 2017.
  • David Price of the Red Sox ranks ninth with 79.1 points, despite earning only 4.7 points in 2017. (Price was injured much of 2017.)

Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins is the top-ranked batter over the past two seasons with 20.7 Box-Toppers points, ranked 26th among all players over 2016-17. Stanton had 14.2 points in 2017, 17th among all players and second among NL batters. He has 44.9 points over 2012-2017, 51st among all players.

Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers is the top-ranked batter over the past six seasons with 59.8 Box-Toppers points, ranked 22nd among all players over 2012-2017. Cabrera had only 2.0 Box-Toppers points in 2017. However, he still ranks 91st among all players over the past two seasons with 14.0 points over 2016 and 2017.

Elvis Andrus of the Rangers is the top-ranked AL batter over the past two seasons with 20.2 Box-Toppers points, ranked 28th among all players over 2016-17. Andrus had 11.0 Box-Toppers points in 2017, 30th among all players and third among AL batters. He has 25.2 points over 2012-2017, 186th among all players (and outside the top 100 listed here).

Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates is the top-ranked NL batter over the past six seasons with 47.5 Box-Toppers points, 42nd among all players. McCutchen had 9.0 Box-Toppers points in 2017, seventh among NL batters. His 16.0 points over the past two seasons ranks 62nd among all players over 2016-2017.

Other notable players on the lists:

  • Jose Fernandez was killed in a boating accident near the end of the 2016 season, but the late Marlins pitcher still ranks 20th among all players in Box-Toppers points over the past two seasons. Fernandez earned 22.4 points in 2016, which was third-most that season. That 22.4-point total for one season was only bettered by 19 other players who were able to achieve their point totals over two seasons. Fernandez’ 53.1 points earned from 2012-2017 ranks 30th among players over the past six seasons. That total is more remarkable because not only did he obviously not play in 2017, but he also did not debut until 2013 and spent part of 2014 and 2015 out with injury as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. In other words, Fernandez ranks 30th based on playing only two complete seasons and only parts of two other seasons in the past six seasons. Last year, Fernandez also ranked 30th among players over 2011-2016 with 53.1 points.
  • Jose Altuve of the Astros ranks 78th among all players over the past two seasons with 15.0 points over 2016 and 2017. Despite being named AL Most Valuable Player in 2017, he had only 2.5 Box-Toppers points in 2017, 387th among all players, 90th among AL batters. Altuve had 12.5 points in 2016, which was third among AL batters. His 31.5 points over the past six seasons ranks 123rd, outside the top 100 for 2012-2017.
  • Jered Weaver, who retired from the Padres this season, still ranks 54th among all players in Box-Toppers points over the past six seasons, earning 44.2 from 2012-2017. Weaver earned no points in 2017, but ranked sixth among AL pitchers in 2012, earning 15.4 points.
  • David Ortiz, who retired from the Red Sox at the end of 2016, still ranks 87th among all players in Box-Toppers points over the past six seasons, earning 36.9 from 2012-2017. Obviously, he had no points in 2017, but had 12.4 in 2014, fifth among AL batters and 8.0 in 2016, 18th among AL batters.
  • A.J. Burnett retired from the Pirates at the end of the 2015 season and hasn’t been active for the past two years. Still, he ranks 92nd among all players in Box-Toppers points over the past six seasons with 36.1 points over 2012-2017. Burnett had 11.7 points in 2012 and 10.4 in 2013, both with the Pirates.

Over the past two seasons, a large majority of players in Box-Toppers top 100 are pitchers—72. In Box-Toppers’ top 100 players list for 2017, 63 are pitchers. Here is a breakdown of players on the top 100 list for 2016-17 by their primary position:

  • 7—Third base
  • 5—First base
  • 4—Second base
  • 3—Closing pitcher
  • 3—Designated hitter

  • 0—Catcher

The Cubs and Indians have the most players among the top 100 for 2016-17 with seven players each. The Nationals and Astros each have six players. The Red Sox, Dodgers and Rangers each have five players on the list. Four teams each have one player on the list—the Braves, Twins, Athletics and Phillies. The White Sox are the only team with no player on the list.

On the top 100 list for players over the past six seasons, there are 76 pitchers. Here is a breakdown of players on the top 100 list for 2012-17 by their primary position:

There are five teams that each have five players on the list—the Cubs, Nationals, Dodgers, Giants and Yankees. In addition, there are six players on the list who are either no longer or not currently in baseball—three have retired, one is a free agent, one was released and one died (Jose Fernandez).

BTP: Box-Toppers points
* Jose Fernandez died Sept. 25, 2016, in a boating accident. He played for the Miami Marlins.
What are those numbers after players' names?
Note: Players are listed with the team with whom they finished the 2017 season. Several players on the list were not on a team for reasons including they had retired, been released, or were unsigned free agents.
Team names: In the chart, the teams "ana al" and "fla nl" refer to the Angels and Marlins. Since those teams changed names without changing location (Anaheim Angels became the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Florida Marlins became the Miami Marlins), Box-Toppers did not change the team code names.
