The mystery has been solved. The listing of public ballots posted by the BBWAA is not entirely accurate.
Nobody who voted for Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, Edgar Renteria or Magglio Ordonez went public. Shocker.
I don't necessarily agree, but good take here from the great @ErniePalladino, who is first-ballot all the way.
agree. whitaker, edmonds, dw. evans, grich, k. hernandez, delgado, b. williams, cone, simmons, others deserved more…
If the 1990s Yankees had an award for their best outfielder named Williams, sorry Gerald, but Bernie would have won.
