Hall of Merit
— A Look at Baseball's All-Time Best

Sunday, June 07, 2009

Election Results: Seaver, Carlton, Gibson, Niekro and Perry Are the Kings of the Mound For Group 4!

By unanimous choice, legendary Met Tom Seaver was deemed to be the best of the best of the Hall of Merit’s Group 4 pitchers.

Virtually tied, stoic moundsman Steve Carlton and fiery hurler Bob Gibson received 90% of all possible points.

Of the remaining pitchers that earned at least 75% support, famed knuckleballer Phil Niekro and noted spitball artist Gaylord Perry both nabbed 79%.

Thanks to OCF for his help with the tally again!

I see that point - I guess if we're voting by league, including an NeL vote, that's not "excluding."
Would we have separate NeL AL and NL votes? What about guys who played mainly in Cuba and elsewhere that year? Should we put them all together?

Just for fun, I'd through everybody in one big pot. AL, NL, NeL, pitchers, catchers, bat boys, everybody.
