I went with Corcino here but would have felt comfortable going with any of the above.
Agreed. These candidates have become awfully hard to separate. Which makes it interesting. I'm choosing to blame the closeness for the fact that I've voted inconsistently. In fact, I've voted for three guys still on the board. First, Jacob Johnson, because I have him rated very highly among the starting pitchers. But it was easy to see that he had no chance--and will have no chance for quite a while still--so I switched to Tucker Barnhart. Barnhart, too, is a long way from being elected. So when Jeremy Horst became available, I went with him. He's my second-rated reliever, behind Joseph. And he's been a solid producer throughout his minor-league career. But the fact remains that, in a field this tight, it's hard to be either right or wrong.
