  • Top Pitchers of All Time Poll-#18

    This is the 18th installment of the pitcher polls. The rules are simple, submit your top 10 pitcher list (minus already elected pitchers, which I"ll get to in a minute). Lists must be clearly numbered 1-10 and please make it easy to identify who you're voting for. 12 points will be awarded to your #1 selection, 9 to #2, 8 to #3, 7 to #4, and so on. The pitcher with the most points will win the poll. In the event of a tie, the pitcher with the most first place votes will win. In the event that they have the same amount of first place votes as well, we'll have a runoff poll that lasts two days between the two tied pitchers. Also, if you make any really strange decisions, you'll be asked to justify them. If you don't justify them, then your ballot won't be counted. So far we have elected these 10 pitchers:

    1.Walter Johnson
    2.Roger Clemens
    3.Lefty Grove
    4.Cy Young
    5.Pete Alexander
    6.Christy Mathewson
    7.Greg Maddux
    8.Tom Seaver
    9.Warren Spahn
    10.Satchel Paige
    11.Randy Johnson
    12.Bob Feller
    13.Kid Nichols
    14.Bob Gibson
    15.Steve Carlton
    16.Pedro Martinez
    17.Smokey Joe Williams

    Last poll there were 11 ballots submitted, and Williams emerged as our second Negro Leaguer selected. His only real challege was from Juan Marichal. These were the top 12 vote getters (first place votes in parenthesis):

    Smokey Joe Williams-97 (5)
    Juan Marichal-83 (2)
    Sandy Koufax-68 (1)
    Carl Hubbell-62 (1)
    Mordecai Brown-52
    Whitey Ford-40 (1)
    Robin Roberts-36
    Jim Palmer-26
    Nolan Ryan-26
    Ed Walsh-18
    John Clarkson-16
    Tim Keefe-15 (1)

                            Bill, might want to add Ray Brown (1930-1948) on there. Most people have him as either the 4th or 5th best Negro League pitcher (I have him 4th).
