  • BBF Ranking Game – Election #11 – Nominations

    Welcome to the BBF Ranking Game. Please go to the Proposal thread and review the complete rules for this project.

    Here are the players we ranked in Election #1 through Election #10:


    1. Babe Ruth – 2. Willie Mays – 3. Barry Bonds – 4. Ty Cobb – 5. Ted Williams
    6. Hank Aaron – 7. Walter Johnson – 8. Honus Wagner – 9. Stan Musial – 10. Roger Clemens
    11. Cy Young – 12. Lou Gehrig – 13. Rogers Hornsby – 14. Alex Rodriguez – 15. Mickey Mantle
    16. Tris Speaker – 17. Lefty Grove – 18. Greg Maddux – 19. Joe DiMaggio – 20. Mike Schmidt
    21. Albert Pujols – 22. Eddie Collins – 23. Oscar Charleston – 24. Rickey Henderson – 25. Frank Robinson
    26. Pete Alexander – 27. Mel Ott – 28. Joe Morgan – 29. Nap Lajoie – 30. Tom Seaver
    31. Jimmie Foxx – 32. Eddie Mathews – 33. Josh Gibson – 34. Randy Johnson – 35. Cap Anson
    36. Christy Mathewson – 37. Satchel Paige – 38. Johnny Bench – 39. Cal Ripken – 40. George Brett – 41. Kid Nichols
    42. Carl Yastrzemski – 43. Warren Spahn – 44. Pedro Martinez – 45. Jackie Robinson – 46. Dan Brouthers – 47. Ken Griffey Jr
    48. Roberto Clemente – 49. Johnny Mize – 50. Al Kaline – 51. Mike Trout – 52. Bob Gibson – 53. Pop Lloyd

    The ballot will include 12 Nominees for elections #8 thru 14. So in this thread we will determine the 7 players who will be added to the ballot, along with the five carryovers, for the 11th election. Basically, someone nominates a player for inclusion on the ballot, and two other people need to support the nomination for the player to make the ballot. When we get our seven guys the nominations are closed for this round. Someone then will start the Voting thread where we will rank the twelve players.

    You should limit yourself to only three Nomination + support votes in a calendar day. To be clear, this does not mean that if you Nominate three players at 11:59 pm that you can then make three more votes two minutes later at 12:01 am. After your third vote in a day wait at least six hours or until midnight ET, whichever comes later. We want to encourage participation from different BBF members.

    It is helpful if someone can post an update after every couple of ballots, as it can be difficult to see the current nominating status of every player. I will try to keep an updated list of the ballot in this post.

    This thread is also for discussion of the players. However, discussion should be in a separate post from your nominate/support votes. But don’t take this too strictly; a brief comment along with your nominate/support vote is fine.

    Please post any questions concerning this project in the Proposal thread. Thanks for playing!

      Nominate Shoeless Joe Jackson – I conservatively credit him with 20-25 additional WAR for 1918-19 and 1921+.
      Nominate Wade Boggs – His 57.4 WAA are the most on the board. Had five 8-WAR seasons. Posnanski has him #47.
      Nominate Chipper Jones

      Bubbling just under: Pete Rose, Smokey Joe Williams, Martin Dihigo, Reggie Jackson, Arky Vaughan, Gary Carter.
