The votes are in, and here you have it:
1st 2nd 3rd Points Ballots Sabathia 15 11 1 109 27 Beckett 8 10 3 73 21 Bedard 3 3 5 29 11 Carmona 3 2 6 27 11 Lackey 2 4 5 27 11 Santana 1 5 8 6 Wang 1 1 6 2 Verlander 1 1 4 2 Putz 2 2 2 Escobar 1 1 1 Kazmir 1 1 1 Halladay 1 1 1
There were 32 total ballots, so from the last column you can see what fraction of the ballots each player was named on. In a year like this, I don't think it's unusual not to have a single player named on all ballots.
If I had to guess, I would think that Beckett will do better in the actual voting, and may even win it. I think Carmona deserved more votes than he got here, and he'll also take votes away from Sabathia being from the same team.
By the way, I hope those of you who engaged in foolish name-calling now see that when it comes to voting, it doesn't really matter. Lots of candidates get stray votes in any free election, but only deserving candidates get a significant number of votes. That is the beauty of democracy.
Thanks to everyone who voted. Tune back in a few weeks when we can compare this voting to the real deal.
