Carlos Degado, and everyone below him, fall off the ballot. I'm sad for Carlos, he deserves a longer consideration. I'd vote for him above Mattingly. Tim Raines totals take a nice jump but I was hoping he'd be above the 60% level. Mike Piazza had a nice job in votes too. Both have a shot at making it never year.

Congratulations to the Class of 2015. Very worthy choices.
