    Default 2050 Nomination Discussion

    Not a great class this year (at least in terms of no-brainer types). If anyone has any strong disagreements, let me know.

    People I'm leaning toward including on the ballot:

    Antonio Gomez
    Norm Franck
    Todd Coulter
    Artie Oliver
    Curt Ervin

    People I'm leaning away from including on the ballot:

    Dax Davidson
    Alfredo Gonzalez
    Thomas Schaefer
    Doug Morgan

    Aside from Artie Oliver, I've never even heard of any of those guys. Couldn't tell you what position they played or for what team.

    Wow. Not a strong list.

    Coulter was a 1B, played for the 'Theques for a long time. Was very consistent and good but not great.
    Tom Shaefer was a SP, also played for the 'Theques. Never had 100 wins in his career. Wouldn't bother.

    Artie Oliver is at the top of a very weak class, and he's likely the only guy that has a chance to last on the ballot more than 1 vote. I agree that the "leaning away from" guys don't deserve a ballot spot at all, the non-Artie Oliver guys are all a reach already.

    Well, Gomez does have 3100 hits (I'll have a little more to say when his thread goes up) so he's gotta make the ballot, but yeah...wouldn't shock me if none of these guys get in.

    Going ahead and posting these now, as our down week while we get v15 sorted seems like a good time to have the official discussion. Ballot will go up next Wednesday (the 30th).
