B/R MLB 500: A Video Introduction

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to the B/R MLB 500!

The video will answer key questions about the project, but anyone who remembers Matt Miller's NFL 1,000 series will understand the general concept.

Over the next few weeks, we're going to be taking stock of the best and the brightest that Major League Baseball has to offer. We're going to go position by position, scoring players according to several different categories, and we'll eventually put all players in one big list of 500.

As with the NFL 1,000 series, the MLB 500 is concerned much more with current events than with history. What's happened in the 2013 season is what counts the most, as the whole idea is to line players up for a theoretical team for the 2014 season—one with an abnormally large roster, of course.

The publication schedule is as follows (with links to available content included).
