I have surprisingly little to say about this year that hasn’t already been said. Browning, if you ask me (Bob and I have been emailing back and forth about him) is the Manny Ramirez of the 19th century in several different ways. Williamson, O’Neill and Clements jumped into my top ten, and Caruthers is all the way up to second, a far cry from his first year on the ballot when he wasn’t in my top 15. Hardy Richardson, I have him up to three but I don’t know if anyone else is very high on him. I am not as high on Galvin as some others, but I think he’s deserving. If you haven’t looked, go see his pic on BBR.com. It’s worth the effort.
