    5th Best Pitcher of All-Time

    Just like we are doing with position players, we are also doing pitchers.


    Just like in this thread
    http://forums.prosportsdaily.com/sho...3#post28649023

    Vote for one player, and nominate someone that isn't on the list that you want to see come up next.



    RULES:
    There will be a zero tolerance, one strike policy. If ANY poster is interrupting any of the threads in a negative way, OR causing any problems they're ability to vote will be taken away.
    NO POSTING in your FORUM, VOTE for this GUY. We had problems last time with it and NO POSTING in someone Else's Forum to VOTE for a certain player.


    Criteria: Take into account both peak and career play, era dominance, impact on the game of baseball, and how well their style of play and skills would transcend onto different eras. Statistical values, team values, etc all matter. To be more exact, how great they were at playing the game of baseball.
    So while this thread will be a poll, you vote for one player and then Nominate someone who is not on the list that way as the guys in the original list are selected we know who to add on the subsequent list.

    For example:

    If for #1 you vote Ruth, obviously we will see it in the poll, but don't just vote please, have discussion and include a nomination for who you think should be added to the next ranking on the poll.

    For me I might vote Ruth #1, and then say Nominate: Honus Wagner to be on the next poll for the #2 player.

    Voted: Mathewson
    Nomatine: Niekro


    I'm not set on Mathewson here, but he seems like a solid choice....but my mind could be chafed if someone has a well thought out argument for someone else.

    Vote: Cy Young
    Nominate: Gaylord Perry

    Hard to choose between Mathewson and Cy Young but I had to lean on Young because of longevity, it could have gone either way, tough choice here.

    Vote: Sandy Koufax, if it weren't for severe arthritis he could have easily been the greatest ever. At age 30 he already had three Cy Young awards and pitched 4 no hitters (1 perfect game).

    Nominate: Bob Feller

    Spahn and Seaver are almost a dead heat among these for me. I have both of them over R. Johnson as well.

    Cy Young, nominate Feller.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 46-52, games this week vs. Blue Jays (4), Rays (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: Good draft and off-season so far.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, free agency begins this week.

    Vote: Grover Cleveland Alexander

    This was the toughest one for me. This is what determines the Top 5 man. I went with Alexander because he was dominant in the 1910s, went off to the Great War, came back and continued his dominance for a couple more years, then was still solid in the '20s.

    Nominate: Steve Carlton

    For the record as a huge Dodgers fan, Koufax does not deserve to be voted in yet. The guy wasn't very good at the beginning of his career, and didn't last very long. He had 6 great years (4 of them are historic good), but that isn't enough to be a top 5 pitcher of all time. C'Mon.

    Is Koufax really going to win this?


    Randy Johnson is number 2 and Koufax number 5?


    Unreal.
