Some Poll Results

Minor League Ball is a year old now, and there's no question but that it has been a successful year. We've had over 1.3 million visits, and traffic continues to rise nicely. When the season gets underway, I expect traffic will accelerate even further.

I want to personally thank each and every one of you. It is the community that makes this site what it is.

We've been doing a lot of polls lately, one of the best ways to have interaction, and I think the results are quite interesting in many cases. There is often a nearly perfect bell-curve distribution in the results.

Some of the more interesting questions, the results, and my own answer:

My Answer: 2007.
