Buckley: Should anyone be elected to HOF this year?
So what are we looking at next year? Maddux by himself while Jeff Kent gets added to the pile-up of "Not an HOFer..well...just because."?
Butch points out…“Even more HOF Gizmo-love!”
Sorry "them" was referring to HoF ballot gizmos, not the press. But, yes, if we stop the gizmos we will stop the press from citing the gizmo incorrectly.
We are projecting nothing. If we are going to be cited in the media but make no effort to ensure the media cites things remotely correctly, we should stop them.
I appreciate the effort that Repoz puts into this. I understand it provides info people want. But if this is the attention it is going to draw, we are going to look silly.
I vote we stop doing the HoF ballot gizmo. Please at least change the intro to make it abundantly clear that this is an actual count of published votes, not a projection and that this is known to be a biased, self-selected sample.
I know such a warning will be about as effective as ZiPS' old "this is not a playing time calculator" statement but please at least make the effort.

They will be changing the rules-be it making ballots unlimited (or 15 max), or something more drastic. Hell the voting pool could be extensively reworked.
While I agree even a 15 max ballot would be beneficial, that's not going to stop Joe Bagadonut from returning an empty ballot or only having two names.
