Sam Malone, no relation (Will M.), Tuesday, 8 April 2014 16:55 (five years ago) link

hmm guess i could've drawn the line at 17 instead of 20, which would also include Jimmy Rollins, so I guess he's a good write-in

Sam Malone, no relation (Will M.), Tuesday, 8 April 2014 16:56 (five years ago) link

it's a bit early for this, i'm gonna wait a week and see who's left

ciderpress, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 17:23 (five years ago) link

cool i was thinking abt starting this

juan uribe is always a good candidate

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 18:01 (five years ago) link

my favorite tradition!

i'm voting for hechavarria

le goon (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 8 April 2014 18:14 (five years ago) link

bj upton might be a good option as well

le goon (J0rdan S.), Tuesday, 8 April 2014 18:14 (five years ago) link

i went with howie kendrick because the angels don't seem that interested in walking and he is a great perennial candidate

Sam Malone, no relation (Will M.), Tuesday, 8 April 2014 19:06 (five years ago) link

voting Pierzynski b/c he's more likely to be beaned repeatedly.

bnw, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 20:20 (five years ago) link

wilin rosario already walked, somehow. last year he didn't walk after July (131 PAs)

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 8 April 2014 20:27 (five years ago) link

Khris Davis
Jonathan Schoop
Stephen Lombardozzi

johnny crunch, Friday, 11 April 2014 19:12 (five years ago) link

Voted Upton. Chipper put a bunch of THOUGHTS into his head yesterday that he'll be swinging his way out of for a month.

Oren Zombarchi (WilliamC), Friday, 11 April 2014 19:19 (five years ago) link

Hechavarria is hitting about .350, so he may not take til he's under .270

could be jonathan schoop, you dont walk off of curaƧao

johnny crunch, Friday, 11 April 2014 19:21 (five years ago) link

i think upton might have to be the leader in the clubhouse right now

le goon (J0rdan S.), Friday, 11 April 2014 19:25 (five years ago) link

pierzynski is still alive, but i guess he is unqualified at the moment

mookieproof, Friday, 11 April 2014 19:27 (five years ago) link

going in on howie kendrick here

ciderpress, Friday, 11 April 2014 19:36 (five years ago) link

Van Horn Street, Saturday, 12 April 2014 00:07 (five years ago) link

Uribe

Andy K, Saturday, 12 April 2014 00:17 (five years ago) link

mookieproof, Saturday, 12 April 2014 00:19 (five years ago) link

i will be a jerk and wait until the day before the poll closing date to vote, since it's two weeks away. then i will choose from the 1-2 players that are left and feel empty inside.

Karl Malone, Saturday, 12 April 2014 00:40 (five years ago) link

that's so karl

mookieproof, Saturday, 12 April 2014 00:47 (five years ago) link

Down goes Upton!

Oren Zombarchi (WilliamC), Saturday, 12 April 2014 02:18 (five years ago) link

he began the game with a 0 wrc+ (who knew?)

so 0-for-x with a walk is an improvement (until his walkoff hr in the 10th tonight, of course)

mookieproof, Saturday, 12 April 2014 03:02 (five years ago) link

Andy K, Thursday, 17 April 2014 13:02 (five years ago) link

walks are overrated, guys. Keith Hernandez says ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK

(he's rivaling Joe Morgan of ten years ago in not understanding his own career)

panettone for the painfully alone (mayor jingleberries), Thursday, 17 April 2014 16:52 (five years ago) link

The bases loaded with walks, Jose Uribe pops out to shallow left-center on a 2-0 pitch.

he's out

we can be heroes just for about 3.6 seconds (Dr Morbius), Saturday, 16 April 2016 09:09 (three years ago) link

Kevin Pillar will now be not-walking in the eighth spot rather than at leadoff.

clemenza, Sunday, 17 April 2016 15:38 (three years ago) link

Pillar drew a BB today! 48 AB in the leadoff spot, zero walks; they drop him back to eighth, he goes 3-3 with a walk. Casey Stengel won a few World Series supposedly preying on guys' insecurities...

clemenza, Monday, 18 April 2016 20:55 (three years ago) link

i'm guessing Neil Walker is the only contender who is slugging .585?

how many left?
