Bobby Veach

Is it Bobby Leach or Tommy Veach?

I never checked to make sure, but it seemed like a lot of voters last year had Leach and Veach right next to each other on their ballots...

That was one of my two tallying errors, a Veach/Leach mixup. My other was that old standby, C.Jones/F.Jones. It used to be that C.Jones voters wouldn't vote for F.Jones and vice versa, but lately I've been seing more voters with both Jones's on the ballot. Then there's Hooper/Cooper, about to become Hooper/W.Cooper/A.Cooper.

Yup, those two examples are a pain in the butt for anyone tallying.

Veach is a WARP guy. His WS numbers aren't impressive enough for him to make my ballot in my system. However, his peak and prime looks very good in WARP with 6 seasons with 9+ WARP1 and 4 seasons with 10+ WARP1. Its enough to keep him in the fight for the last few ballot spots for me.
