  • 17th Greatest Pitcher

    Congratulations to the Phillies' Steve Carlton for winning our 16th Greatest Pitcher Poll! He scored 62 points from our 18 voters, including 7 first place votes. The legendary Negro League star, Smoky Joe Williams amassed 58 points for second place, picking up 7 first place votes for himself along the way.

    The following chase pack consisted of Carl Hubbell, the Giants' Meal Ticket, who collected 30 points but no first places. Three-Fingered Brown, the Cubs' legendary twirler after the turn-of-the-century came next with our voters, with 28 points and 3 first places. Juan Marichal came next with 25 points but no first places.

    The 17th round for Greatest Pitcher series is now open. Round 16 will end when we receive 20 ballots, however long that takes us.

      My Slate of Candidates for this round. Numbers following indicate where Bill James ranked them in 2001.

      1. Smokey Joe Williams, 13
      2. Juan Marichal 21
      3. Mordecai Brown 15
      4. Nolan Ryan 24
      5. Addie Joss 80

      Next up.

      Eddie Plank

      Might I persuade any of you guys to consider voting in our other polls?

      13th Greatest Hitter

      45th Greatest Player

      Wagner/Mays?

      I would consider it a great favor if you did.

              Okay, I'm re-ordering just a bit this time.
              1. Carl Hubbell
              2. Phil Niekro
              3. Gaylord Perry
              4. Sandy Koufax
              5. Juan Marichal

              To me, most of these guys, and a few others, are very close and could be swapped around.

              Close behind are Roberts and Brown.
