Well after some tough choices last round, we have our top 16. We ran the voting on both Twitter and on the TCB website, interestingly most of the selections were the same, but there were 2 votes that did not turn out the same way on twitter as they did on TCB. After discussions of how to handle it, Hatter convinced me to run them side by side.
Here is the updated bracket. As you can see the 2 votes that didn’t come to the same conclusion were the Darryl Kile / Yordan Alvarez battle and the Geoff Blum / Michael Brantley battle. Here were the results for each:
As you can see, both sets were extremely close votes.
We will host (4) Play-offs tomorrow, and (4) the following day. Here is our schedule:
Jeff Bagwell vs Roy Oswalt
Jose Cruz vs Jose Altuve
Justin Verlander vs Lance Berkman
Darryl Kile vs Billy Wagner
Craig Biggio vs Larry Dierker
Nolan Ryan vs Mike Scott
George Springer vs Charlie Morton
Alex Bregman vs Michael Brantley
The twitter voting will commence today, TCB’s voting will take place in each of the 2 articles. Get your predictions and arguments in early so that you have a chance to convince the voters before the polls open. Some of the best comments will be used in the article advocating for each player!
