4: Jack Morris
5: Dan Quisenberry
6: Dwight Evans
7: Don Mattingly
8: Darrell Evans
9: Harold Baines
10: Matt Williams

Results:

Something we haven’t had since 1893….a tie. Fortunately, it was fairly easy to break. I looked at 4 things to be sure I got it right.

Number of #1 votes: Dawson 0, Evans 0
Number of #2 votes: Dawson 4, Evans 5
Number of non-votes: Dawson 3, Evans 2
Head to head votes: Dawson 7, Evans 8, meaning that I looked at each ballot to see who each of us favored. Eight had Evans ranked higher than Dawson.

Who came in 2nd seems pretty clear to me

15 ballots; the results:

210 Rickey Henderson
88 Darrell Evans
************
88 Andre Dawson
76 Dwight Evans
74 Willie Randolph
42 Rick Reuschel
42 Bret Saberhagen
40 Don Mattingly
36 Dale Murphy
28 Dan Quizenberry
24 David Cone
18 Jack Morris
18 Dave Parker
18 Lee Smith
17 Tommy John
17 Dave Stieb
13 Albert Belle
8 Buddy Bell
8 Willie McGee
8 Tony Phillips
8 Jim Rice
7 Dwight Gooden
6 Brett Butler
5 Lance Parrish
4 Harold Baines
4 Chuck Finley
3 Eric Davis
2 Jose Canseco
2 Matt Williams
1 Mo Vaughn

Just an interesting aside that means nothing. In head to head competition, 8 of the 15 voters had Dwight Evans ahead of Darrell Evans. And 8 of the voters had Dawson ahead of Dwight. A perfect circle: Darrell beats Andre; Andre beats Dwight; Dwight beats Darrell. Rock, Paper, Scissors.
