Top Cards on Twitter 2020: The Write-In Section

For six straight years after the season has concluded, I’ve asked folks on Twitter to give me their opinions about the people they follow or see in their time line.  Six straight years can only mean one thing.

Folks, Top Cards on Twitter is now serious.

With a late surge in voting, we continued the trend of having more ballots than the year before.  Not by much, but the trend is still increasing:

Year Ballots
2015 26
2016 42
2017 43
2018 116
2019 138
2020 143

Folks, let me tell you something.  I know that this ballot is getting very unwieldy.  I decided not to cut anyone off (save those that don’t seem to have accounts anymore) but that meant there were 199 names out there.  I don’t expect people to know or vote for everyone (though a few did), but even sorting through all those names is a lot of work.  Next year, I’m really going to have to pare it down some.  On the average, people ranked 68 accounts on the ballot, so maybe I’ll cut it back to a 100 or so, though I imagine that will increase the number of write-ins we have.

Which is how we segue into our actual results!  This post is all about the write-ins.  Everyone listed here was written in by someone because they were left off the original ballot.  When someone takes the effort to add to an already huge list with your account, it’s gotta mean something, I think.  There were a couple of write-ins that got enough support that they passed people that were actually on the ballot, so we’ll get to those in the next post.  Otherwise, let’s dive right in!

And we’re off!  I’ve had some good conversations with Joe Drake over the years.  We’ve also got the account for Redbird Rants, the Cardinals blog on FanSided.  Follow that one and you’ll get all the links to their various articles and posts.  I owe Eli Chapman an apology over this.  She was ranked 111th last year and has always been on the ballot, but when I did my checking of accounts I couldn’t find her.  I thought that was surprising but dropped her off.  All I can figure is I made a typo of some sort.  I also can’t believe I didn’t have Chelsea Ladd on the ballot.  I’m sure she would have been much higher if so.

Behold our most concentrated dose of perfection.  We’ve got a few others that averaged a perfect score but this is the biggest chunk of them.  Peoria Chiefs is, of course, one of the Cardinals’ A-ball affiliates and should still be after the shakeup of the minor leagues, even if it’s at a different level.  Walking With Waino is the Twitter account for Adam Wainwright’s daily Bible study.  I’m on the email list and I am way behind in reading them, but they are really a great look at things and you can tell it’s all Wainwright.  Phil Daugherty has a lot of funny takes and I have used this time to rectify the fact I wasn’t following him.

We’ve reached the end of our first chunk.  We see two more perfect scores with Sam Smitty and the GOAT, while CardsSIUC was just one point short of a perfect 30.  Next time we’ll get into those that were on the ballot, plus look at the few write-ins that really made an impact.
