Fan Gauge: Results

And, with the polls closed, the results are in. Observe in the following, sortable! table. Average is a simple 5/4/3/2/1 calculation, where a higher number is good. Assuming the individual or entity in question likes to be liked. Who doesn't like to be liked? I wonder if Rob Johnson likes to be liked. I don't want to give anything away, but in the event that Rob Johnson likes to be liked, then I have bad news for Rob Johnson.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • These results do not reflect the opinions of the Mariner fan base. These results reflect the opinions of the LL readership, and a small but not entirely insignificant number of trolls.
  • Ryan Langerhans and Michael Saunders were excluded while Jack Hannahan was included for some reason, but safe to say Langerhans and Saunders would've scored well. Off the top of my head, I would guess that Langerhans would score around 3.8, and Saunders would score around 4.0.
  • These polls ran over the time period between April 30th and May 7th. Opinions may have changed with subsequent performance.

I like how Griffey shows up between a middle reliever, a manager, and a starting pitcher who hasn't thrown an inning. Also interesting to note how much higher Adam Moore comes in than Rob Johnson - while Moore has been worse, Johnson's been more exposed, giving him more opportunity to embarrass himself.

Anyway, I don't think there's anything real surprising in the table, but it's nice to have some quantitation. Ability is obviously the biggest determinant here, but far from the only one. I'll leave the rest of the interpretation to you guys.
