      I voted for:

      Blyleven
      Dawson
      Gwynn
      Ripken
      Trammell

      I reserved voting for McGwire, as I think more time is needed to figure all that mess out.

        I thought I had clicked Gwynn, but he is not showing up in italics for me, so I must have had a clickign problem. He is clearly deserving, so if anyone is using this poll for anything, add one more to Gwynn.

            Will anyone admit to not voting for Ripken?

                But honestly, who of those players have a snowball's chance in hell of being elected?

                  Let alone staying on the ballot or even receiving one vote.

                      I went with Blyleven, Gossage, Gwynn, McGwire, Ripken, and Trammell.

                      Almost gave Saberhagen a courtesy vote.

                        If there was a rule requiring a voter to use all 10 votes, I'd probably vote for (in the following order of preference):

                        1) Tony Gwynn
                        2) Cal Ripken Jr
                        3) Goose Gossage
                        4) Bert Blyleven
                        5) Alan Trammell
                        6) Andre Dawson
                        7) Albert Belle
                        8) Dale Murphy
                        9) Dave Parker
                        10) Jim Rice

                        * I'd need more time to figure out what to do with McGwire, as I believe there is more to be learned in the coming years.

                          Obviously, none of them. The point is that since the original list has many players of similar quality to these, it is only the Coop's typically casual approach that included some on the list and not others.

                          Most of the players of this quality will not appear on the 2007 ballot, the BBWAA ballot screeners will not pass them. However, a few always slip through. For many players, it is an honor simply to be listed on the ballot.

                          So, try to enjoy the list as a little reminder of some of the good players from the 1990's who have been off the stage now since 2001. If anyone is interested in the complete list of 10-year retirees, I could post that.

                            Gossage, Gwynn, Ripken, and, after some debate, McGwire.

                            Still thinking about Blyleven -- I might be persuaded to go for him too.

                              Players I would vote for:
                              Albert Belle
                              Bert Blyleven
                              Andre Dawson
                              Goose Gossage
                              Tony Gwynn
                              Mark McGwire
                              Dale Murphy
                              Dave Parker
                              Jim Rice
                              Cal Ripken
                              Lee Smith
                              Alan Trammell

                              If I had a ballot, I'd leave Parker and Smith off.
