1949

This election will end Wednesday. At which point we will be half way done (well, technically 49.7% done – we’re having 155 elections and this is the 77th).

Too bad: Urban Shocker drops off, he’s used up his eligibility.One of my all-time favorites, tho I didn’t vote for him very often. Frisch would have done a better job if he had tabbed him instead of Haines.

Bob’s ballot:

1. Hartnett
2. Hubbell
3. Beckwith
4. Dean
5. Averill
6. Ferrell
7. Gomez
8. Berger
9. Myer
10. Cooper

Reluctantly, I altered my ballot. It’s kind of sad, but I see no point in keeping anybody who has less than 7 years of eligibility left on my ballot. They ain’t getting in; it just ain’t gonna happen.
