VOTE: Time Warp HOF Ballot 1945

1936 Initial Ballot Results, 1937 Results, 1938 Results, 1939 Results, 1940 Results,
1941 Results, 1942 Results, 1943 Results, 1944 Results


No players were elected to the RL HOF in 1945 by the BBWAA, but the following players were elected by the VC - Roger Bresnahan, Dan Brouthers, Fred Clarke, Jimmy Collins, Ed Delahanty, Hugh Duffy, Hughie Jennings, King Kelly, Jim O'Rourke.


All players who received at least 5% of votes on the last ballot were retained for this ballot. I also added players who became eligible for the ballot in 1945 (retired after 1939 season).

All players not receiving 5% of votes on this ballot will be removed.

The TWB VC officially begins in 1946, so all players who have been retired for 20 years fall off this ballot if not elected.

Vote for as many or as few as you want. Max votes are 10.

HOF Standard: 50 is considered an average HOF'er. 100 is max.

In alpha order:

Hitters:
Dark Horse Allen
Rabbi Baum,
Slap Hertzog
Patrick Seifried
Bull Zegri

Pitchers:
Mark Krosser

On Wizard Reneau vs. Schwarz, people probably should vote for Wiz ahead of Schwarz. Wiz's R+RBI is actually 19 higher. His OPS is _much_ higher -.829 vs. .760. Heck, .317/.382/.447 smokes .260/.312/.448 despite the HR advantage Schwarz has. Wiz's leaderboard appearances BA (2-2-7), OBP (2-2-8-9), SLG (5-8-10) and OPS (2-6-10) swamp Schwarz's SLG (1-2-2-5-6) and OPS (3-8-10). Schwarz was an "RBI Man" (1-3-6-9-9-9-9) while Wiz was a Run Man (1-3-4-7-7-10) that pretty much wash out. Gold Glove catcher (one of the best ever with 8) vs. Gold Glove SS ("just" three). I know Schwarz held the all-time HR record. He's not exactly Dave Kingman, but he's not Mike Schmidt either.

As you can see, I didn't vote for Wiz. He's close. An .829 OPS from a Gold Glove middle IF is very impressive. Flaky was a .838. Of course he played a large chunk of his career in the dead ball era, while Wiz got the lively ball. You can look at Flaky in the BA/OBP/SLG/OPS leaderboards and see that in the context of his time he was consistently a better hitter than Wiz. So I'm being cautious with Wiz until we look a bit more into him. Then again, one can take a look at Schwarz and compare him with the Great Catchers who came before him and see he comes up very short.

CF Ben "Rabbi" Baum

RF Nick Graves
2B Jerry "Slap" Hertzog
1B Patrick Seifried
LF Glendon "Bull" Zegri

Pitchers:
Mark Krosser
Dave McBean

Can someone explain to me why Mark Krosser always gets more votes than Dave McBean? In my book, these guys deserve to go in together. McBean was the equal to Krosser and people are missing that fact.

Krosser has the edge in wins, 266-254, a difference of 12 wins. McBean, however was 30 losses better than Krosser, 181-151. If you calculate the Fibonacci Win Points, McBean has the lead by 262-243 (the formula is FWP=W*W%+Games over .500 as stated in Bill James' Politics of Glory). Now wins are obviously not the only factor. Krosser edges McBean in ERA by a very slim margin (2.50-2.52). McBean edges Krosser in WHIP (1.10-1.06). Both players won 1 Pitcher of the Year award and 1 World Series each.

Krosser beats McBean in CG's 419-386, but McBean had more SHO's (39-55). There are two points in Krosser's favor that I see as not having a match by McBean: IP and K's. Krosser was good for about 400 more IP, or 1.5 seasons, and he struck out 602 more batters, which is significant. I just don't think that IP and K's are enough to vote for one guy over the other.

I just recently read through the Fibonacci Win Points chapter in James' book, which is why I thought I'd apply it here, and it's pretty interesting. It's basically a way of trying to compare players like Sandy Koufax who didn't play as long but were very good with players who played much longer but didn't win at a high rate. James points out that it's only one factor in the analysis since it really only focuses on wins which is team dependant. That's probably why it's not a very popular stat. The other reason it's probably not as popular is that there's not really a good equivalent for batters, although James does present one in his book with some pretty strong reservations about it. Anyway, when I ran the numbers it was one more reason for me to conclude that I think McBean is Krosser's equal, and continue my frustration that others don't seem to notice it as much as I do.

For what it's worth, here are the Fibonacci Win Points for the pitchers on this year's ballot:
262 - Dave McBean
243 - Mark Krosser
239 - "Nasty Ned" Fargo
238 - Tobe Palmer
217 - Will Haggan
181 - "Evil" Gary Archer

And the current HOFers:
440 - Andrew Murphy
407 - Tim Lopresto
309 - Cecil Tan
296 - Scott Fenner
288 - Allen Albertini
284 - Bowie Castellon
263 - Raymond Gindler
234 - Ahrend Nagel

Other Notables:
448 - Jethro Lee
430 - Frank Smith
347 - Otto "Kaiser" Kahle
342 - Anthony "Punchy" Cote
299 - Art Booth
287 - David Wickersham
282 - Bourbon Allen

Note how I resisted the temptation to vote for Duckie Andrew, even though he's my granddad? Hopefully the Vet Comm. will be more appreciative of a solid big league career than his good-for-nothing offspring . . .

How can you people be so cheap and only vote for 3 or 4? There is actually some quality on these ballots!

In order of randomification;

Patrick Seifried
"Frenchie" Fournier
"Dark Horse" Allen
"Ray of Light" Brown
"Cookie" Parrish
"Rabbi" Baum----staggering number of all them: 0 (# of WS Titles)
Will Haggan
"Shephard" McBean
"Nasty Ned" Fargo
"Bull" Zegri

Fascinating numbers fhomess. It's interesting to see that both of them aren't in the Hall, yet "The Professor", Mr. 100% has a lower FWP and is in. Hmmm...

Another observation, this has to be the Year of the Nickname

Lol... If my math is correct, 14 of the 22 players on the ballot have nicknames.

Fascinating numbers fhomess. It's interesting to see that both of them aren't in the Hall, yet "The Professor", Mr. 100% has a lower FWP and is in. Hmmm...
Yes, but as I've said before....the numbers don't factor in CHARISMA

I can't speak for other people, but my thoughts are here back in the Time Warp HOF Ballot 1941.

On the Proffesor, he is in for his peak:

Won Pitcher of the Year Award in 1924
Won Pitcher of the Year Award in 1925
Won Pitcher of the Year Award in 1926
Won Pitcher of the Year Award in 1928
Won Pitcher of the Year Award in 1929

ERA
1924 - 2nd
1925 - 1st
1926 - 3rd
1927 - 5th
1928 - 2nd
1929 - 2nd

WHIP
1924 - 1st
1925 - 1st
1926 - 1st
1927 - 2nd
1928 - 2nd
1929 - 2nd

Wins
1924 - 2nd
1925 - 1st
1926 - 1st
1927 - 7th
1928 - 1st
1929 - 1st

His actually better than his ERA placements reflect as he was hurt by his bandbox home park - 3.04 ERA at home and 2.76 on the road. It actually was typically a bigger split than that as his amazing pitching at home in 1925 makes the numbers "close" when they typically weren't:

1925
Home - 18-0 with an 1.87 ERA
Road - 13-6 with an 3.92 ERA

To cross reference with the ERA+ tossed up for Bowie, Krosser and McBean, here are Nagel's in that six year run:

1925 - 180
1929 - 171
1928 - 168
1924 - 163
1926 - 153
1927 - 135

They're better than McBean's peak. Where Nagel run into "problems" is that the rest of his "good" to "average" season fall off fairly fast:

1923 - 139
1922 - 115
1932 - 111
1918 - 110
1920 - 104
1930 - 102
1919 - 102

McBean had five 119+ seasons in addition to his Top 6, three of those five being 130+. Of course there is the slight problem that McBean missed about 1/3rd of his starts in those three seasons, which does cut into the "value" of those season even if the "quality" was better.

Again, people voted for Nagel for the peak. Five POY in six years. I'll grant that his peak isn't one of the four or so best in TWB - Murph and Smith almost certainly would top him, and I suspect that Presto and Dodge would as well. But it's better than McBean and Krosser, and no worse than even if not better than Bowie's. I think we'd all agree that those three are all-time greats. When you're peak is better than three of the all-time greats, that pretty much is the definition of a HOFer, no?

I like McBean. I certainly could support his Vet Committee candidacy. His lack of even a single ERA title or even a WHIP title troubles me. He's right there "among" the best pitchers in the NL for a good amount of time, but really not the best.
