1983

A little more drama this time around. I’ll be interested in watching how the top three candidates do; I expect it to be close. Plus a number of guys who might get enough support to crack the Top 10, like Allen, Wynn and Torre; and a number of guys who might get a smattering of love, like Cuellar and Powell. It’s going to be fun watching the “bubbling unders” to see how they jockey for position for the openings in the next 5 elections.

Dick Groat and Stu Miller drop out.

This election ends Sunday night.

Congrats on 2000 posts, Bob, and yes it’s a milestone. It’s a reminder of how much time and effort you’ve put into the GOR so we can play with it. I don’t know where else to say this, so I’ll say it here: anyone judging first basemen by their defensive WAR would judge a Civil War porno by it’s historical accuracy.
