      "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

            I'm almost too embarrassed to move this up.

              Check the 50th Greatest Player thread for my latest explanation. Here's where things get tricky. Our leader on the full five man ballots has a comfortable lead, but not a lock. When I add in the four man votes, our second place player surges ahead. But there is an opening in those fifth place ballots where if they were filled, the first place player on the full ballots could tie it up. I'll leave it to you guys. Should the guy leading with 16 full ballots get it, or the guy leading with 16 full and five four-person ballots?

                Do we have a protocol for this? Is there something in past posts which deals with this? What does Bill think/say?

                  I will support AstrosFan. He has earned my discretion. I don't think we do have a protocol to govern this. We might use Judd's (AstroFan's) procedure and stick with it for a few rounds.

                        Congratulations to the New York Giants' 60's pitching standout, Juan 'the Diminican Dandy' Marichal for winning our 19th Greatest Pitcher Poll! He scored 37 points from our 14 voters, including 4 first place votes. The following chase pack consisted of Mordecai Brown, the Cubs' turn-of-the-century pitching ace, & Sandy Koufax, my childhood idol. Three-Fingered Brown picked up 29 points with 2 first place votes while Sandy collected 29 points and 3 first places.

                        Did not read the other posts but the New York Giants ceased to exist in 1957 and Marichal's career began in 1960.
                        1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

                          Brad, as almost always, is a voice of reason: nary a mention from him of Ryan so far.
