2007 BBTF Veterans Committee Composite Results: It’s Harvey and Miller!

Umpire supreme Doug Harvey collected an impressive 79% from the BBTF group.

Legendary MLBPA leader Marvin Miller also nabbed 79% from the electorate.

Famed Kansas City and St. Louis manager Whitey Herzog missed induction narrowly with his 71%. He was selected by the HoM voters with a comfortable 79% of the vote (that group also picked Harvey and Miller, though the latter had a little more support).

Thanks to all who participated!

i think I am the only HOM guy not to have voted for Harvey (I coudl be wrong, how many votes were there?), but I can't say that his election would anger me any. I just have no idea how to measure an umpire. Maybe it was my mistake not to vote for him.

This whoel process does make me want to do a Manager/GM wing of the HOM, however.

19 HoM voters.

I would have liked to have voted, and the discussion thread certainly provided enough commentary for an informed judgment, but I ended up not having time to review it thoroughly. Without a well-developed system to rely upon in for making an initial placement, I found approaching a vote _much_ harder!

Three others left him off, Mark.

Harvey and Miller topped the HoF ballot but neither got in.

If The Brooklyn Strangler isn't Hallworthy, the bar for owners must be about a mile above Ron Santo's and Joe Gordon's heads---and I voted for both of them.

You make the call!

If I were a BBWAA voter, I would submit blank ballots from now on until the VC elects somebody.

I've got it. No more HoF voting of any sort. Just shut 'er down. Then the prima donna m**************ers who are already in won't have to share their precious honor with anybody else, like Michael Jackson in Disneyland. That, my friends, is Cooperstown 2007: Michael Jackson in Disneyland. A bunch of loony m****************ers, just a loony f***ing bin.

It's interesting how we seem to agree with the HoF voters that Harvey, Miller and O'Malley are the top candidates. They prefer Williams to Herzog, we're the opposite but we both picked them as the top managers. We support Dalton and they support Bavasi among GMs.

I think Harvey, Miller and O'Malley is probably correct. Nobody else really stands out above the rest. I'm a "small hall" guy for non-players.

.
Numbers of ballots (of 28) with at least n votes.
28 ; zero
26 25 24 21 13 ; one to five
11 5 2 0 0 ; six to ten

One interpretation is votes for how many people should be elected. That is, 21 people vote for electing at least four candidates; 28-21=7 vote against electing so many as four.

According to both the 50% and the 75% rules (14 or 28 votes needed), the "winner" is four.

Seems wise to do so until someone figures out some high-quality ways to determine merit for these guys.
