    It does look like Frank Thomas somehow slipped through the cracks. At this point in this election, I'd prefer just to leave him ineligible for this election and make sure to add him next time, if there is one (don't have the voting spreadsheet handy, so I'll throw out the caveat in the exercise of caution).

    I'm not stunned I missed him, but I am that not only I missed him, but nobody called me on it until now.

    Following up: Got to look at the spreadsheets--this one has six votes now, so it will survive.

    Just to be clear, if FT is eligible, he'll be number 2 on my list.

    Jim, was Frank Thomas elected in a previous election? I don't see him listed anywhere. I tried tracking him down in previous elections, but I've had no luck finding him. He was born on the same day as Jeff Bagwell if that helps.

    For me (if no FT eligible)

    1. Jim Thome
    2. Fred McGriff
    3. Indian Bob Johnson
    4. Mickey Welch
    5. Jeff Kent
    6. Sam Rice
    7. Jim Edmonds
    8. Jake Beckley
    9. Joe Sewell
    10. Dave Bancroft
    11. Bill Mazeroski
    12. Urban Shocker

    Next in order:

    Wally Schang
    George Van Haltren
    Carlos Delgado
    Joe Tinker
    Ernie Lombardi
    Jack Morris

    I think I'll wait until Sunday evening to open the voting. I'll post my ballot, and the election will then be open. I anticipate running the election until January 30 at 7 am EST, but could extend it if needed.

    We will hold off on voting for a few days to try and make sure we have all the candidates who meet the requirements of post two, rule seven.
