1925 Ballot

1) Oscar Charleston - I am overriding the MLEs for Charleston and Beckwith, they don't make sense given the Seamheads data
2) Rogers Hornsby - best MLB player
3) Bullet Rogan - another outstanding season, best P
4) John Beckwith
5) Kiki Cuyler - postseason bonus puts him just behind Beckwith
6) Dolf Luque - best MLB pitcher
7) Pie Traynor - postseason bonus moves him up. 7-16 are pretty tightly grouped
8) Joe Sewell
9) Dave Bancroft
10) Pete Donohue

11-15) Goose Goslin, Al Simmons, Eppa Rixey, Jack Scott, Herb Pennock
16-21) Dazzy Vance, Dobie Moore, Harry Heilmann, Tris Speaker, Turkey Stearnes, Urban Shocker

Official 1925 MMP Ballot (no postseason bonuses and NL players are dinged 3%):

1) Oscar Charleston: Best ML/NeL player and center fielder - no one close by my analysis.
2) Bullet Rogan: Best ML/NeL pitcher - had a hard time closing between Joe and the Rajah, but I'm comfortable with my decision.
3) Rogers Hornsby: Best ML player and second baseman.
4) John Beckwith: Best ML/NeL shortstop.
5) Turkey Stearnes: Best NeL center fielder from the foul family.
6) Al Simmons: Best ML center fielder.
7) Kiki Cuyler: Kiki is the ML right field guyguy.
8) Harry Heilmann: Best ML right fielder.
9) Goose Goslin: Best ML left fielder.
10) Walter Johnson: Best ML pitcher.

Best NL pitcher: Pete Donoghue.
