1904 Ballot

This should be the most interesting election yet, the first one that is truly wide-open.

I have McKean and Stivetts outside the HoM. Forget about the rest.

The newbies for 1906 suck eggs.

As usual, the last-minute ballot comes flying over the transom. (BTW, I didn't realize until this week that the WARP numbers were available to non-subscribers, which changed a couple of things.)

1. Old Hoss Radbourn. (3) I still have him ahead of Galvin, with a higher peak. And a couple of points on 1884. First, if people don't want to regard the UA as a major league, how much could it have watered down the NL? Second, it was also Galvin's best season. Third, I think Hoss's pitching every stinking day for the second half of the season has an impact even beyond his wacky numbers, because it led his team to a pennant, and it almost certainly hurt his career by damaging his arm. In my opinion (which I'm sure is not shared by all), this is a different situation than the usual career-shortening injury, because it wasn't random chance, it was the player almost literally sacrificing his future career to win a pennant now, and Hoss should get "injury credit" that isn't normally available. So I still think his 1884 was better than Galvin's even though Pud's 3 WARP higher.
