Thibbs: How Did Last Year’s 5 Blank Ballot Submitters Vote in 2014?

E-bro gets corrected.

This year, one voter submitted a blank ballot according to the BBWAA. Was it the same anonymous voter as last year? Nobody knows except for that voter. It could be Chris Jenkins, who has yet to reveal his ballot this year in the San Diego Union Tribune or to me when asked via email.

The other three 2013 blank ballot submitters have revealed their ballots again this year:

  • Jorge Ebro told me via email that he voted for 6 players this year: Biggio, Glavine, Maddux, Morris, Piazza, and Thomas.
 
  • Howard Bryant told me on Twitter that he voted for Glavine, Maddux, Morris, and Thomas.

  • Mark Faller went from zero to the maximum 10, as he detailed in a column last week: Bagwell, Biggio, Glavine, Maddux, Morris, Piazza, Raines, Schilling, Smith, and Thomas.

Bryant knows nothing about baseball.


Hey, he only voted four times but got the top three vote recipients and the sixth-highest vote recipient!

I read Juicing the Game, hoping for some real insight, as it seemed he'd put a lot of work into it. But it turned out just to be reactionary bunkum. Bryant's just another self-promoting #######; he happens to have hitched his wagon to steroids puritanism as a path to fame.

Bryant's just talented enough to have a good idea for a book, but not talented enough to really follow through. I remember Shut Out having a lot of holes in it.
