This election will close Saturday night…..unless. Will the NCAA Basket ball Tournament slow any of you guys down, getting your ballots in by then? I know I have my den set up for caving the next 4 days. Little fridge stocked, choice snacks nearby, and warnings posted alerting all my females to leave me alone. Well, that’s not entirely true: my wife’s birthday is tomorrow, so I’ve slotted 30 minutes for her. During halftime of course.

Editor’s note: Mindy got a lot more than a half-hour.

Bob’s ballot:

I have decided to totally re-think my ballot for this one year. This is the last real chance for any of these guys to get in. Oh, someone who has a number of years left of the ballot (Sutton maybe) might sneak in 10-14 elections from now, but I seriously doubt it. What I’m going to do is rank the guys who finished 2nd thru 11th in the 1894 election. Guys, like Wood and Fisler, who I have been voting for, aren’t getting enough love, so I am going to drop them from my ballot this year. If someone else votes for them this year, they’ll likely be back on next year’s. I am not suggesting or hoping that anybody else votes this way. I like seeing guys like York and Cummings and Fisler and Wood on the ballots. None of these 22 guys on the ballot are overwhelmingly qualified HOFers. Here’s my ballot:

1. Mathews
2. Ferguson
3. Leggett
4. Jones
5. Sutton
6. Pike
7. Meyerle
8. White
9. Bond
10 Corcoran
