Another tie — and a new wrinkle to our voting

Two players finished Round 30 tied for first, at 18%. So as before, we’re going to re-rack the vote and name two winners based on Round 30-31 voting.

Also, there are new wrinkles to voting that will ideally give us more accurate results, a wrinkle as of now we’ll plan to carry over into 2019’s polling.

One is the write-in vote. Because the previous results (in the roster ranking and top prospects polls) feed this most essential poll, we tend to have a ballot that can be a bit stale. For example, Dylan Covey was a very late addition to the roster ranking poll due to his “26th man” sort of status on the roster at the time; he’s become a valuable pitcher in his month with the team this year, so a write-in vote can get him on the ballot more quickly than waiting for him to be added organically.

Cast your write-in votes in the comments below.

The second wrinkle is a sort of relegation. For example, we were excited enough when Trayce Thompson was reacquired around the midpoint of the roster ranking, but almost literally no one believes TT is an essential White Sox now. In this last poll, Thompson got zero votes, so he falls off the ballot, for a minimum of one round.

Depending on how many write-in candidates materialize, we may not add every player written in every time. At the very least, the player with the most write-in votes/recs will be added to the ballot. We’ll play it by ear.

With Thompson falling off of the ballot, Adam Engel is added to this round of polling.
