Hall of Merit: Voting Theory

“In response to sunnyday2’s thoughtful comments on information and advocacy… These are issues that I’d like to hear more
about. How about a thread for “voting theory” or something similar?”

Note, I will be on vacation starting Saturday a.m., returning the following Saturday a.m.. I have no idea if I will be able to access the internet during that time. So I’ll probably just post the ballot thread Saturday morning before I leave, just refrain from posting to it until Monday - unless you too won’t be around . . .

Hall of Merit: 1928 Ballot

Balloting for 1928 is now open. I’ll have my revised WARP numbers up this week (I’ve got the eligibles done, need to do the HoMers now), based on BRARP+FRAA+PRAR. These numbers overrate pitchers because the replacement level for their offense is underrated. I’ve adjusted for season length as well.

An early tease, the top 8 (I think? need to look again, numbers are not on this PC) eligibles are all pitchers. Several of them are old timers, to whom the season-adjustments maybe shouldn’t apply. Obviously there is something wrong with that, so I need to do the current HoMers for perspective.

Hopefully I get the current HoMers done tonight, but there are 50 of them (47 with stats) so it likely won’t be until tomorrow night (early Wednesday). I’ll be tweaking my ballot somewhat this week as there were a few surprises.

Another thing I noticed is the monumental difference between WARP and WS fielding evaluations on some players. So I’ll list each component (BRARP, FRAA, PRAR) for both WARP1 and WARP2 and I’ll give the player’s WS defensive letter grade also. Once I can get the data input, I’ll list his season length adjusted WS total too, but that’s not likely to be out until 1929.

Hall of Merit: 1927 Results - Negro Leaguer Elected for 3rd Consecutive Year

Joe Jackson overcame his first-year boycott and Pete Hill became the 3rd Negro Leaguer elected to the Hall of Merit, joining Grant Johnson and Frank Grant.

After being left off 27 ballots in 1926 (presumably for his role in the 1919 Black Sox scandal), Jackson was only missing on 3.5 ballots for 1927, and he easily won the election with 875 points.

Hill was elected in his first year of eligibility, edging out Joe McGinnity and Bobby Wallace.

Jimmy Sheckard, Sam Thompson, Bob Caruthers, Dickey Pearce and Lip Pike finished 5-9, repeating their finish from 1926. Jake Beckley rounded out the top 10.
