Jose Olsen Jr. (Can somebody turn the lights down. Glint off those Cy Young trophies kind of blinding.)

Ryan Stanage (#7 All Time JFL Wins Leader)

Gary Kennedy (#1 All Time JFL Wins Leader, guy pitched until he was 45. Shades of Satchel Paige!)

William R. Booker (9 All Star Teams, 9 World Series Rings. Coincidence? Oh, and 300 Wins)

Bill Alexander (I'm not a big RP HOF guy, but Bill was the dominant Closer of his generation)

...I'm giving a no vote to everyone else, including Gary "Flash" Smith, who did ring up an impressive amount of Saves, but when I checked, my goodness, you need more than **600** of them just to break into the Top 20 on the JFL All Time Saves leader board, and that swayed me to vote no.

My votes go to:


Cassidy
Olsen Jr.
Stanage
Booker
Smith
Courtney
Alexander


I'm aware that I didn't vote for Kennedy, he'll make it in regardless. Main reason for this is that I had the second overall pick in his draft and I'm a petty SOB. Also, I consider it my tribute to Zachariah Matlock, indisputably the greatest pitcher in this league's history.

LOL Are you serious … this could come back to bite you … ;) … Kennedy is one of the top 4 pitchers in League History. There are a few before Matlock that were just amazing. Long ago … pitchers who at this point only I remember facing. Back when this was the toughest league in SD. Without the minors this league was so time consuming.

Gary Kennedy was top in

Wins 418
CG 195
K 4327

Think about this he is top 10 in others but most of all he actually pitched complete games. He was not yanked every time he got in trouble just to keep his ERA low … he pitched through it like starters did in the old days. Remember SD penalizes pitchers for pitching all those innings during his time and now. Anyway too hilarious.

I’m not saying he wasn’t good, although h achieved those records by overextending his career, something I usually don’t believe in. I just didn’t vote for him because a) it didn’t matter and b), I’m petty.
