  • 18th Greatest Pitcher

    Congratulations to the Negro Leagues' pitching standout, Smokey Joe Williams for winning our 17th Greatest Pitcher Poll! He scored 58 points from our 19 voters, including 8 first place votes. The screw-balling Giants' star, Carl Hubbell piled up 50 points for second place, picking up 2 first place votes for himself along the way.

    The following chase pack consisted of Sandy Koufax, my childhood idol, who collected 39 points and 4 first places. Three-Fingered Brown, the Cubs' legendary twirler after the turn-of-the-century came next with our voters, with 34 points and 2 first places. Juan Marichal came next with 30 points and 2 first place votes. The chase pack isn't gaining on the leaders. They are still trying to get traction here.

    The 18th round for Greatest Pitcher series is now open. Round 18 will end when we receive 20 ballots, however long that takes us.

    As per our usual, please consider everything. Counting totals, rate stats, relative stats, peak, longevity, special skills, awards/opinions, intangibles, team support/lack of support, special circumstances, time missed for war/injuries, etc.

    We are now ONLY voting for the 18th Greatest. Please submit your ballot with your next Top 5 Pitchers, and 5 Honorable Mentions, if you would. That would help us out. Thanks for cooperating in this process. As the winner of Round 17, Joe Williams is now eliminated from further consideration. Negro Leaguers are eligible.

                        I have not yet decided who my next five will be.

                        With transfer ballots, I have 13 votes in, eight of which have honorable mentions, assuming I get mine done. I would like to see more voters, but our leader has a sizable enough advantage that we seem headed for his inevitable capture of this spot. In cases like these, I think we are okay to cut off early, as opposed to a close race that had stalled.

                              As I stated in the 13th Greatest Hitter thread, when I am stuck for full ballots, I study partial ballots to see if the trends lead me to a conclusive winner. In this case, as with the hitters, it's an easy yes. Our winner is Carl Hubbell. Again, only full ballots are actually placed in the chart.

                              I can't use this method forever, so it is necessary in all cases for people to vote. But I do have enough material to move along this series to the next round.
