Season 48 Organization of the Year
Reno, Nevada (GUGOOHG) - The highest honor in the Yount League is the Organization of the Year. As evidenced in the private league rules, we want owners with a comprehensive organization, which is why the minor league has a minimum win rate. The season 48 organization of the year is the Baltimore Orioles and owner vanrip77. The Orioles were the only franchise to make the playoffs at every level and won the Triple-A title, which ultimately was the difference maker.
We here at Get Up Get Out of Here Gone think the Owner of the Year maintains a stable farm system, and the Big league club should be in a position to make a postseason run. The lower-level squads should be hunting to capture a minor league World Series Championship. The winner of the Get Up Gets Out of Here Gone Owner of the Year Award should field competitive teams at every level.
The Owner will receive the Get Up Get Out of Here Gone Owner of the Year Award with the most points.
Four franchises didn't make the playoffs at any level, matching last year's total.
The most significant organizational jump was by the Houston Astros and brianbowsher, who jumped from 29th overall to 5th overall. Brian is in just his second year ever in WIS and has quickly adapted, which is bad news for the rest of the AL. The other team with a double-digit ascent was the Cardinals. The most significant drop was by the Pittsburgh Pirates, who went from 7th to dead last at 32nd.
