Let me explain to you how terrible this decision was:
Todd Zeile received zero votes. Todd Zeile’s OPS is .769. Todd Zeile’s OPS+ is 103.
Ray Lankford received votes. Ray Lankford’s OPS is .840. Ray Lankford’s OPS+ is 122.
Yes ladies and gentleman, one could actually statistically argue that Ray Lankford was a superior baseball player than Andre Dawson.
In fact, of all the players on this year’s ballot, Andre Dawson’s OPS+ was 15th out of 19!
