Earlier today we finished up our march through the best Cardinals Twitter accounts, crowning beat writer Derrick Goold as the best for 2020 (which, when you think about it, might be a backhanded complement). Now let’s look at things from a few different angles.
As you probably saw, people were named on a varying amount of ballots. Nobody was on all 144 of them. Here’s the Top 10 if you sorted by number of ballots named:
Not a lot of difference there compared to the actual list. So what about if you sorted by average vote? To keep this from being a lot of 10s by people who were on only one ballot, we’ll put a minimum of 40 ballots named as a criteria.
There were only about three others that were averaged an eight or higher. Look at gifs, just dominating everything by averaging a 9.5. There’s a reason we’re putting him in the Hall of Fame, folks.
Finally, with the same criteria, let’s see who got the highest percentage of perfect scores.
Handle, % Perfect
Some different looks there, with gifs of course just dominating. Ron Nuttall sneaks in there in the middle and the Cardinals official account brings up the rear, which is a little surprising.
Thanks to everyone who has said they’ve enjoyed the process this year. We’ll see you next October!
