New, 177 comments

I was able to match 119 ballots to registered accounts, which is an excellent total for our first year and my first Google Form. Without any ado, your Viva El Birdos Hall of Famers: 

PLAYER VEB TOTAL VEB % BBWAA %
Mark McGwire 101 84.9 23.7
Bert Blyleven 99 83.2 74.2
Roberto Alomar 95 79.8 73.7
Barry Larkin 86 72.3 51.6
Tim Raines 81 68.1 30.4
Edgar Martinez 58 48.7 36.2
Alan Trammell 54 45.4 22.4
Lee Smith 46 38.7 47.3

You guys are tough. But all things considered this isn't an awful Hall result; McGwire, Blyleven, and Alomar are all deserving, and Larkin and Raines are in elect-me positions for the near future. Surprised to see so much Edgar Martinez skepticism, though (and Dawson skepticism, while we're at it.) Among players with at least five percent of the vote from either group, here's our list of relative favorites:

Player Difference
Mark McGwire +61.2
Tim Raines +37.7
Alan Trammell +23.0
Barry Larkin +20.7
Ray Lankford +18.5
Edgar Martinez +12.5
Bert Blyleven +9.0
Dale Murphy +7.6
Roberto Alomar +6.1
Robin Ventura +4.6
Andres Galarraga +3.5
Harold Baines +3.1
Fred McGriff +0.3
Don Mattingly -5.2
Lee Smith -8.6
Dave Parker -11.8
Jack Morris -43.1
Andre Dawson -48.5

 

Fred McGriff is the missing link between VEB and the BBWAA.
