15 of 32 of my choices were winners. Of course, in a few cases I tried to make give somebody his due who I thought was overlooked.

Hard to believe the same man could beat out both J.R. Richard and Mark McLemore.

The amazing thing, through his very incredibe career and finishing as one of the top 5 pitchers to EVER take the bump, Roger Clemens did finish 1st for any of his former teams!

I'll take him over JR, but charlie Hough did a lot more for a lot longer than he did for the Rangers.

That was a fun series of surveys, Viva, and a fine use of color in posting the results! Will you submit the WSI consensus results on a DHL ballot?
