    Jim Abbott deserves his day in the sun for having a handicap and still putting together a respectable career. I agree that the other two can be dumped.

    I'd put Paul Assenmacher on the ballot. He probably won't get any votes, but a guy with 884 appearances to his name deserves to at least appear on it.

    I thought about including Assemacher, but he goes on the ballot, Eric Plunk probably has to as well. Plunk didn't appear in quite as many games, just 714, but pitched nearly 300 more innings than Assenmacher, more wins, and is fairly close in ERA+ when you factor in the innings differential.

    As for the three players Savoy questioned, Abbott will absolutely be on the ballot. Statistically I could see why one would question him, but Abbott was quite a noteworthy player for the reasons jjpm mentioned (it's also interesting that Abbott, a first round pick, went straight to the Majors without first playing in the minors). I actually believe his no hitter is one of the best moments in baseball history.

    Mark Portugal I'll consider dropping, though I'll probably keep Mike MacFarlane who was a pretty decent and perhaps underrated catcher (99 OPS+). He even made Bill James' top 100 in the New Historical Baseball Abstract, coming in at 84th all time.

    Might consider Jeff King over MacFarlane on teh ballot. Wouldn't actually vote for either... but King had a decent peak.

    Just missed again - Murphy was one of my all-time favorites. One of teh best of the 80's and a GREAT guy. Wish we could garner one or two more votes for him.

    Murphy is one vote away from 75%.

    Also, I'd like to tip my hat to Chris Hoiles, who didn't earn my vote, but was better than I remembered.

    Strange that the poll did not close.

    That is odd. I definitely remember putting 7 days in, but perhaps I missed something (I think this is my first poll since the website changed format). In any event, Dennis Eckersely and Paul Molitor were elected while Dale Murphy missed by one vote for the second consecutive year. I'll try to get the next poll up tomorrow.

    I closed the poll. I won't say you didn't try to type a 7 in the days open box, XX, but if you did, it didn't take.

    Thanks for closing Jim. The election should have closed on Friday, but between that time and when Jim closed the poll, one additional vote came in. That vote did not make a difference in terms of who was elected or who would be dropped from the ballot, but it does make a difference in terms of just generally record keeping. For instance, if the poll closed on time, Dale Murphy would have missed by just one vote with over 73% support. The extra vote knocked him down to 70%. While I could adjust Murphy to account for one less ballot, I couldn't adjust everyone that was affected by that 24th vote because I don't know who that 24th voter was. As such, I'm going to let the results stand as is given that no real impact has occurred.

    Hopefully I'll get the next poll to close on cue.
