  1. The Phil’s could use a boost, I wonder if they’d consider calling up McGarry, Plasmeyer and Hall.

    For the rankings, maybe ask folks to send in their top 10 list and after that is gathered, their 11-20 list and so on. Maybe asking folks for a top 30 list is harder because only a few of us go that deep. I’ll go along with whatever you decide.

  2. As a daily reader and occasional poster I always thoroughly enjoy your Reader Poll, however to be honest after the top twenty I feel like I am throwing darts. I just don’t know enough about the lower ranked players to objectively make a decision. Whatever you decide I know it will be fun and spark some controversy – thanks so much for all you do to make this site so relevant and interesting.

  3. I still don’t know why the Phillies don’t bring up Hall and drop Sands, they haven’t used Sands and Hall could have a productive AB that could bring 1 win that could make a difference.

    1. I filled it out and submitted it. Did you receive it? I selected multiple players for first, second, and third. Did they come through?

      “Forms” was one of the apps I looked at last year. I don’t remember why I didn’t like it. I’ll take another look, but the ability to submit multiple selections for a ranking is a problem.

      1. yes, came through. I can see all the results in google sheets. I do see how you were able to select multiple players, let me see if I can restrict that.

        1. ok, tweaked it. Now you should only be able to select one player per ranking. I’m going to share the google sheets results with you.

      2. Jim, fyi, results and some thoughts on using google forms sent to the email address you used to vote

  4. Jim, per some ideas expressed and your responses yesterday, how about…

    Top 30 players in any list will be given point value.
    #1 gets 30 points.
    30,29,28, ….3,2,1
    Minimum ranking to submit: Top 20*.

    *Ensures more players are given point values to reduce distortion of only top 5 or 10 getting such large points while next best get nothing.

    Final result is a collective site Top 30 (or 40?)

    1. To confirm, if someone submits top 20 then those players get 30,29…12,11.

      If top 25 submitted, those players get 30,29…7,6.
