Since we are waiting to hear if Donaldson won the MVP, let's do another one of these polls.
This is Curt's 4th time on the ballot, last year he hit a high mark of 39.2%.
Schilling had a 216-146 record but things seem to click for him at age 30. After he turned 30 he won 162 games, winning over 20 haves 3 times, finishing 2nd in Cy Young voting 3 times and making 6 All-Star teams.
He has 3 World Series rings (we beat out his Phillies in 1993 or he would have 4). He was co-MVP for the 2001 World series. And you likely remember the 'bloody sock' from 2004. In 19 playoff starts, he is 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA. A good part of case for the Hall is his performance in the playoffs.
Course there is some post career stuff.. He's a outspoken Republican, actually, he's likely a good bit to the right of most Republicans. He rode his video game company into the ground, costing himself a fortune. Recently he was suspended from ESPN for comparing Islamic extremists to Nazis (which, to me, doesn't rank in the top 10 silly things he has said). Now, saying that a 'blood moon' is a biblical warning against a nuclear treaty with Iran? That's one's pretty nuts. I really don't think that any of that should come into a voter's mind when voting.
On the plus side he is a fan of OOTP Baseball: "The only baseball sim I've ever gotten addicted to" was OOTP.
