  • Brewers BBF Franchise HOF project, second chance election

    This will be one of three second chance round elections this week. What we'll do for the second chance election is a Yes/No vote requiring the greater of 6 or 75% of the votes to induct. The election will be limited to the listed nominees. The elections will only be open for a week--but there will be at least three or four days for discussion and new nominations. You can abstain from an entire ballot (player or contributor), but if you vote in that portion of the ballot, only the guys you expressly vote yes for get credit for a positive vote. The others in that section of the ballot will be considered to have gotten a "no" vote. There will be no limits on how many nominees you can vote for . I will also provide the nomination discussions for the nominees. The deadline for suggesting nominees is twelve hours before the election begins.

    In this case, the election will not begin until Saturday, May 26 at 7 am EDT, and will end at 7 am EDT June 2. Nominations close 43 hours before the election begins, or May 24 at noon EDT. Ballots not cast within the stated election time frame will not count.


    The Brewers have the following already inducted:

    Players (7): Jeff Cirillo, Cecil Cooper, Teddy Higuera, Paul Molitor, Don Money, Ben Oglivie, Robin Yount

    Contributor (1): : Bob Uecker

    The list of nominees at present is:

    Players
    Rollie Fingers
    Dan Plesac
    George Scott
    Ben Sheets
    Gorman Thomas

    Here's a case made for Bud Selig as a contributor of the Brewers:

                            I am on the fence with Harvey Kuenn and while I currently have him as a no, I won't block him from entry here if he is close. I'd probably change my vote even sooner if a Brewers fan came forward and gave a better insight into how fans of the team view Harvey's Wallbangers (if that view is one of inclusion rather than exclusion).

                              It causes me almost physical pain to vote for Selig.
