1969

This election ends Saturday. Only Hilton Smith drops out this year.

I don’t ask for much, but if you can’t vote for them #1 and #2, please don’t vote for them at all. I really don’t want to have to keep spelling their names for 15 elections: Kluszewski and Schoendiesnt. In the 1989 election I am absolutely positive that I’ll have Carl Yaztrzemski #1. And I’m hoping that Marc Rzepczynski doesn’t amount to much.
