HOF Vote - Santos Lopez has the Gray Ink and Black Ink to determine if a player is HOF worthy. I can't really do it those ways so I do an Awards Ink for the Fingers League. Simply add up all the major ML Awards a player has accumulated over his career. I don't include All-Star MVP, HR Derby Champ, times hit for the cycle, no-hitters thrown, World Series rings.

Santos Lopez's Awards Ink - 17
Awards Ink Avg. for HOF position players - 13.67
Awards Ink Avg. for HOF pitchers - 12

World Series 25

The 25th installment of the Fingers World Series was one of the best ever. Five of the six games saw the game-winning run score in the ninth inning of later. Ultimately, Nashville took the Series in six games. This is the first World Series win for khendrickson; and third for the Nashville franchise (ewd330 won the first two).

Louie Hayashi led the way to the title. Hayashi batted .500 (11 for 22), scored seven runs, hit two home runs and drove in seven runs. He homered in each of Nashville's wins in Games 1 and 2, and his walk-off single in Game 5 gave Nashville a 3-2 Series lead.

Monterrey's future Hall of Famer Everth Furcal proved to be the best player in a losing effort. He also batted .500 (14 for 28). Furcal scored seven runs, hit two doubles, a triple, three home runs and drove in seven.

This was the third World Series loss for taz and the Gringos. Overall, the Gringos have won six NL pennants and three World Series in the last nine seasons. They'll surely be back next season fighting for another championship.

Fingers XXV

Welcome to the 25th season of Fingers League Hardball Dynasty!

It's hard to believe that we're starting the quarter-century season and we're still waiting for the former MAPS/current Cheetahs franchise to die off. 

The same can be said about Louie Ma. It seems the 38-year-old will not stop until he reaches 3,000 hits. He needs 112 hits to reach the milestone and bunting has Ma under contract through next season.

The top free agents made out very well this offseason. Hopefully my math is right on all these... A.J. Hurst 5yrs/$71 mil; Leon Padgett 5yrs/$95 mil; Banana Nichols 5yrs/$95 mil; Nick Gil 5yrs/$80.5 mil; Ernest Richard 5yrs/$101.5 mil.

Good luck to everyone!

Not including the Gringos :)
