With this being the 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park, and seeing all the big names and no-names that visited Fenway on April 20, it got me thinking, if they could only invite the 100 greatest living Red Sox to Fenway 100, who should they invite?
After running it by abs, the following will be the format.
Each week, there will be a nomination thread and a poll for each position. Nominations are accepted Monday 9am ET to Wednesday midnight, voting is Thurs 9am ET to Monday 9am ET. For each thread, each poster can list up to 5 players for nominations; up to 20 players, those with the most nominations, will be included for voting.
The mandatory criteria is that the person is alive, and played in 40 games at that position for the Red Sox, or pitched 30 innings as a starter or 20 innings in relief. You can use any other criteria you want to define “greatness.”
Position players (C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, DH):
57 position players will be accepted. For each position, each poster votes for a minimum of 5 players and a maximum of 10. The top 5 for each position are accepted. After all the positions are in, the top vote-getters not previously selected will be accepted, with no more than 10 per position, until 57 players are selected
Pitchers (RHSP, LHSP, RHRP, LHRP):
40 pitchers will be selected. For starting pitchers (RHSP and LHSP) each poster votes for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15. The top 10 for each are accepted.
For relief pitchers (RHRP/LHRP), each poster votes for a minimum of 5 players and a maximum of 10. The top 5 for each are accepted. The top vote-getters for all pitchers not previously selected will fill out the pitching roster, with no more than 15 RHSP or LHSP, or 10 RHRP or LHRP, until 40 pitchers are selected.
Managers: Three managers will be selected. Posters can nominate two managers, anyone who is alive and managed at least two games. For the poll, you vote for the top 3, and the top 3 vote-getters are selected.
The first nomination thread, for catchers, will start Monday.
