    It's good to submit 5 more names as your Honorable Mentions. That way, if you forget to vote one round, we can deduce your choices from your previous ballots.

    While I am not going to redo the chart, this vote literally clinches it for Foxx. I hope we see you in the next round, Surf-Bat.

    That was a good, sound decision to call it, Jud. I would never have been able to do that on my own. My habits are too deeply ingrained. So, it's good a younger person made it for me.

    Whew! We came close to going 2 more months. I can't take this stress anymore!

    My technician has called it after 14 votes. What can I say? We've been open for business for over 2 months. Time to move on. I'll get the next round up tomorrow, gentlemen.
    Good decision, Jud. Well done.

    Clemente: 3,000
    Ichiro: 2,030

    And since you said, "you need someone on base, he's your man" I should remind you that getting on also includes walks, hit by pitch, and other things. His relative OBP is lower than all except Clemente's.
    consider me proven wrong

    I'll put it to you this way. The leader is 26 points ahead of second place.
