    Sorry about that, I fixed it.

      Absolutely no need to apologize. Heck, it brought a problem I had created (overwriting Hack's name with Gwynn instead of inserting Gwynn's name above Hack) out into the open for me to fix. It's my fault, not yours.

        Not to worry. As is shown by my error with Hack, I'm not immune to making errors, either. It happens.

                  We've got a quorum on both ballots, and in fact all but yankillaz from last election have already voted. If he hasn't voted by Monday, I'll follow up with him via PM.

                  Next election will add some interesting names. On the contributor side, there's Davey Johnson and Lou Piniella. I don't plan on voting for either in the next election, but would listen to their cases should anyone care to make them. I'm going to be adding Gillick, who will have added being the GM for the world champ Phils to his resume.

                  On the player side, there's a large crop with some interesting names:
                  Bichette , Dante
                  Bonilla , Bobby
                  Clemens , Roger
                  Dunston , Shawon
                  Dykstra , Lenny
                  Fielder , Cecil
                  Greenwell , Mike
                  Martinez , Edgar
                  McGriff , Fred
                  McGwire , Mark
                  O'Neill , Paul
                  Weiss , Walt
                  Wells , David
                  I've already signalled support for Clemens, Martinez and McGwire, and McGriff certainly has his supporters. Some others in that group might get at least consideration from our voters.

                    Clemens, Martinez, and McGwire will lead my ballot ... and likely in that order. McGriff has an outside shot of cracking the 10 through 12 area, depending upon how this election unfolds.
