Season 49 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 49 organization of the year is the Tampa Bay Rays and owner cpintens. The Rays won the World Series on the major league level, which was the only title they won, despite making the playoffs at every level except for Double A.
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.
Six franchises didn't make the playoffs at any level, up two from last year's total of four.
The most significant organizational jump was by the Oakland A's and goldenbaer88, who jumped from 31st overall to 16th overall. Baer is in rebuild mode, which led to a more robust minor league system. The only team to make the playoffs at every level was last year's organization of the year, the Orioles. The most significant drop was by the Houston Astros who are quickly becoming a yo-yo, as they had the biggest jump last year.
