    Oh yeah, all owners, ex-owners who spent at least a season in the league, and recognized vultures (if there are any?) are eligible to vote.

    One man's ballot:

    Barton Emrich: The only one I didn't agonize over - he and Behm and Pina were the three best players of the first 10 years of FOBL.

    Richard Berglund: Not the shoo-in I initially believed. Al made some real good arguments against him and looking closer at his career, I would have liked better qualitatives out of such a one-dimensional player. Still, he has the 8th best slugging % in history and was integral to many playoff teams. Deserving.

    Thomas Read: Dead set against him up until this morning. Then I looked more closely and realized the guy had 3 of the top 77 pitching seasons in the first nine years of FOBL (according to pitching win shares). One of those seasons was the BEST season in the history of FOBL. He really had a great career for the short time he was with us, and even had one very good season (2001) pre-talent bump.

    Andrew Stafford: Another guy I was dead-set against, but looking at his Win Shares, which are supposed to give you an unbiased view of a player independent of park effects, etc - Stafford had one of the best offensive careers in his limited career.

    Borderline, but no vote:

    Timothy Bohm: One of the best offensive seasons ever from a SS in 2001. Three all-star games. Very good offensive career. But not great. I just don't feel like I have enough context to vote this guy in yet, because he certainly doesn't stack up historically against all batters, but I dont know how he stacks up with respect to his position. His defense was marginal. If he was a slick-fielder I would probably give my vote. Hopefully a hold-over. Not sure how many 1st or 2nd team All-Fobl selections he had.

    Todd Snead: Another fabulous couple of years from this guy and I may have voted for him. As it was, he never won FoY and I think closers have to be truly special to get in...

    My ballot:

    Emrich, Read, Stafford, Berglund. Mostly for the same reasons as Subby. Though I never agonized over Read.

    I considered others such as:

    Bohm: Great SS offensively, but wasn't great enough offensively to make up for his lack of defense. Without a strong glove, I can't give you credit for being a SS.

    Kelley: Died to quickly. Was a top C for the first 2 seasons though. Underrated player in FOBL history, but not worthy of immortality.

    Teachout: Great offensive player. But he never was the best 1B at any point in his career. Can't single him out now, especially as we are dealing with short age shortened careers.

    Brisco: Great OBP guy, but not a player that carried a team.

    Krueger: Top notch pitcher, but age didn't stop his career, injury did. Thus he doesn't get the age credit of these early HoF ballots.

    Crumbley: See Krueger.

    I voted for Emerich, Stafford, Bohm and Snead. Bohm and Snead were votes placed to make sure they stayed on the ballot. Remember that a guy needs 5 votes to not get dropped.

    I am still thinking about how (and whether) to use my 5th vote. I will be voting for Emrich, Berglund, Stafford, and Read. I'm not completely sold that Bohm, Snead, and Krueger are deserving of election, but I would like to see them get enough votes to stay on the ballot for future consideration. It wouldn't bother me to see Teachout stick around for another chance or two, either.
