Royals Prospect Voting Results ... Again

New, 59 comments

I have gone ahead and tabulated the results of the voting I started a couple of days ago.  I had over 200 ballots, but the number was culled down to 190 for various reasons.  Before I get to the results, let me explain one of the columns.

Average position:  The average position of the player in the voting.  If the player received no votes.  I gave them a ranking of 20 for votes because I wanted to stay away from Tambati recieving only a couple of votes and having an average of 7.5.

Some notes:

  1. Hosmer is clearly the top player, but is not a clear #1. 
  2. Moose and Myers are fairly close together
  3. Lamb and Duffys' final ranking is almost identical.
  4. Aaron Crow was the last player to be on at least 50% of the ballots.

Finally, here are these rankings and the ones done by kcscoliny.  Comparing the lists, it looks like either method gets the same general order of players.
