    If this contest is based on one’s ability to self-promote and mobilize a voting population for his selfish needs, then David Cameron is your man. I have never before been able to understand so much about an individuals’ personality on the web. His narcissitic and acerbic style literally drips off of the screen. The funny thing about this is that his field of expertise (sabermetrics) is already populated with his type of guy, so for him to stand out in a field so ripe with arrogance really is an accomplishment.

    If his blog post regarding an Open Letter is any indication of his ability as an analyst, let’s hope that he does’nt quit his day job. That particular masterpiece was more like an open letter to swiss cheese. If what you strive for is a guy that uses a faulty thesis statement and backs it up with sub-standard statistics, Dave is your man. When he then uses his stat-world to advise on the field behavior, he gets so laughably out of his depth, only his 100 or so sheep at his site keep his head out of the water. I am sure that you all will be hearing multiple times from them, but he has scores of critics in the area who find him to be somewhat of a fraud.

    By CRA on November 7th, 2008


    Dave’s insight and persistence in helping others to learn more themselves deserves to be rewarded.

    By Matt the Dragon on November 7th, 2008


    Outstanding blog! I check it multiple times per day.

    By Joel Thiesfeldt on November 8th, 2008



    I’ve studied baseball all my life (I’m 63). I’ve read Dave (and his fellow authors)on his USSMariner blog for several years now. I’ve learned as much about the game in these last few years as I’ve learned the other 60.

    Dave has an uncanny ability to judge talent. He’s right often.

    He gets my vote.

    The winner will be decided by competing promotions to vote early and often. What a ridiculously stupid way to disburse $10,000.

    If you’re not one of his flock of bleating sheep then you might think twice before you vote early and often for Cameron, the scholarship worthy blogger who has blogged that Baseball Prospectus is a “cesspool influenced by a cadre that suck at living as human beings.” Check it out: http://www.baseballthinkfactory.org/files/newsstand/discussion/cameron_giving_the_finger_to_bp/

    David Cameron, through his USS Mariner blog, has dome more for my enjoyment of the Seattle mariners than any other writer, commentator, or newspaper. He consistently shows that he understands the game of baseball on the absolutely highest level, but goes out of his way to spend the time to pass that high level understanding on to others. I have read USS Mariner for near 5 years now and I can say without a doubt that I have recommended the site more often than any other over that time period.

    David’s open letter to Felix Hernandez was remarkable in that he once again took modern baseball statistics and put them into a usable format that could be understood by all. In the case of the open letter he wound uplikely having a direct impact on the Mariner’s success as it found it’s eat to the pitching coach and Felix himself.

    David cameron has unselfishly devotedthousands of hours of his life towards creating a better informed Mariner fanbase. He is MORE than deserving of this award.

    By Brian on November 8th, 2008

    I’ve been a reader of the USS Mariner site since they started up. It’s a really good site, but David Cameron is such an arrogant prick, I wouldn’t vote for him for anything (even dogcatcher), let alone to get $10,000!

    Additionally, Cameron is almost 30 years old — shouldn’t he have gotten his college degree by now? I came to this site to find someone else to vote for – I see that Dave is ahead in the vote by a good margin so I voted for the #2 candidate, Michael Snively. Go Snively!

    By kevin_ess on November 8th, 2008


    Michael Snively is, in my opinion, one of the greatest bloggers I have had the fortune to stumble open in my many college quests. By reading his blog, I have learned the equivalent of countless trips to MIT, along with the Boston area. His clever writing and multiple pictures for new experiences and places complement each other well, and it is because of him that I am applying to MIT. Also as a result, I have a newly sparked interest in math/science centered schools and the true quest for Awesome.
    Really, if you have only ever heard of one of these bloggers, read just one of Snively’s many blogs about college life. They will make you wish you were there.

    By Panda Rosa on November 8th, 2008


    As a writing professional and journalist, I find Thomas Peters’ formidable contribution to online commentary on politics and culture as well as religion all the more impressive in view of his age. He writes with remarkable maturity and insight, and his hard work and shrewd judgment have earned his blog destination/reference status among older and seasoned bloggers and writing professionals. His new AmP NEWS video blogging initiative only raises the bar. A more deserving student blogger is hard for me to imagine.

    @ CRA & Happy Camper
    You guys (if indeed you are two separate people) are hilarious. Is there even a blogger on this list you’re supporting? Or did you just wander over here for the sole purpose of flaming Dave?

    Obviously, there are more than just “100 or so sheep” that disagree with you. USS Mariner is one of the most well-written, well-read, and well-respected baseball blogs out there. Dave Cameron has a great mind, and his evaluations are usually right on the money. Additionally, he’s actually a pretty nice guy.

    Perhaps you have written some of your own insightful pieces of analysis that you could share with us so we could better understand the expertise that colors your opinion? No? Then perhaps you are just jealous? :)

    Dave, we appreciate the countless hours of quality work you put in to enriching our baseball enjoyment. Hope you win – you deserve it.

    I have learned more about baseball from Dave Cameron than I have from a life time of reading the Seattle Times, the Seattle PI, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated.

    While I am sure the other blogs are all deserving, Dave Cameron gets my vote. As for CRA, what is your problem? I can only conclude you are one of the other candidates. Face the facts: Dave is going to win the $10k. Well deserved, Dave.

The man makes the internet a more intelligent place.

    By Jin on November 9th, 2008


    Vote for Thomas Peters, very smart, logical, and hard working.

    By Brady on November 9th, 2008


    I could not recommend Dave Cameron highly enough for the wonderful work he has done for U.S.S Mariner.

    His blog is one of the few that I read every day. I value his accuracy and insight most. As an example, the 2008 Mariner preseason led off with a landmark trade which was heralded by ESPN pundits, local sports radio and the three market newspapers. Dave Cameron, instead of relying on outdated conventional baseball wisdom, blogged that the trade was a mistake. He provided evidence and conjecture that eventually was proved correct. The trade was a monumental bust.

    That’s what he does day in and day out. His analysis has proven correct far more often than the aforementioned media outlets. That’s why I frequent his blog. Dave’s even got me reading articles he gets published on other blogs and his semi-weekly local radio interviews.

    Accuracy and insight. They earned my vote.

    By Young Lee on November 9th, 2008


    @ Jerry
    I wandered over out of curiosity. As one once rigorously vetted for a scholarship, I can’t support $10,000 being disbursed according to standards of a popularity contest. This one’s as asymmetrical as a beauty contest between men, women and sunsets.

    Cameron writes clearly, but he’s a lot less sovereign when interacting. He quickly ridicules contrary opinions with zingers like “You know a lot less about this than you think” or “We’ve discussed why you’re dead wrong, feel free to just let it go.” And when he suspects that he or his pal’s been slighted, Davey really turns on the charm, as he did when he characterized Baseball Prospectus as “a cesspool influenced by a cadre that suck at living as human beings.” That’s not quality blogging.

    By Happy Camper on November 9th, 2008


    I tried to vote, and found out that I couldn’t – I have now had to vote from an anonymous IP Proxy. It appears that College Scholarships.org is IP filtering the votes, so one vote per IP. Whilst this might seem a method to prevent multiple votes, those on AOL might find themselves blocked.

    More worryingly, those on an institutional IP address, such as a college network, might not be able to register their vote. For a contenst for a COLLEGE scholarship to do this is worrying – if 100 people at the University of Anywhere independently decided to vote, then only one vote will be allowed. Any chance this might be corrected before the closing date?

    VOTE FOR DAVID MALINOWSKI! I recommend David Malinowski!!! He loves langauge and technology. So he has created a cyber place where people who are interested in learning new languages and culture share their thoughts and experiences. I can see what other people feel and think about their learning experiences which always inspires me whose second language is English. So I love his blog! He deserves it!

    how utterly useless.

    By Brennon on November 9th, 2008


    I didn’t even know Thomas Peters was a college student until I saw this voting opportunity. His American Papist blog is a daily read for me, and has been for as long as he’s been running it. Papist Picture of the Day is a true highlight of the web, I’ve sent links to many of my friends.

    And even though I’m a native of Seattle, nothing about the Mariners can compete with Peters’ discussion about truth over at American Papist.

    Peters FTW!

    By Ken on November 9th, 2008


    Vote for Thomas Peters. This guy gets information on current social, political and religious events disseminated in a humorous yet respectful way. The only thing he doesn’t have that I would recommend is bagpipes. His PPOTD never fails to elicit a smile.

    By Andy L on November 9th, 2008


    That just depends on where your priorities are and you passion lies, Brennon. 2,819 people appear to disagree.

    I for one could not possibly recommend anyone more than Dave Cameron. Dave works hard to provide intelligent, inspiring analysis. He has had a direct impact on so many people and the way they approach baseball- and by extension- life. The blog may be about baseball, but the underlying philosophies of his analysis can easily be applied to all facets of life.

    I can’t imagine anyone better at what he does than Dave Cameron is at baseball analysis. Should we all be that capable in our chosen fields, this world would be a far better place.

    Dave Cameron is a good man and deserves this scholarship.

    Once Again, the self-promoting Lord Cameron has deployed his cult of obsequious toads to sway public opinion in his favor.

    Vote NO – to the little-boys-baseball-card-club lead by Dave “Koresh” Cameron.

    Slap Back – at his ‘stable boys’ who will surly dominant this list, by shear number (and proxy) rather than intellect.

    Vote Yes – to one of the many other gifted writers who actually contribute something to society, rather than self-aggrandizement and narcissistic fueling schemes.

    By Monte on November 9th, 2008


    Happy Camper,
    Unless it’s your $10k, I don’t see why you should care how they give it away. I don’t think they care if they have your support or not.

    As far as the Cameron/Zumsteg/BP fallout…so what? Everyone is entitled to their opinions – no need to take it so personally. BP didn’t exactly handle that well either.

    Fact is, Cameron’s blogging generates a good deal of impact in the national baseball scene. Whether or not you agree with or like him, that’s a worthy accomplishment.

    By Anon on November 9th, 2008


    Brennon,

    Your comment is the only utterly useless aspect here. Just because one of the candidates was nominated for something he wrote on a sports analysis blog doesn’t mean he’s not the most worthy candidate here – unless you are so blind and biased against any or everyone other than your preference.

    And to cite a very small portion of Dave’s writing, Jerry, you, sir, are being even more shortsighted than those you are lambasting for voting for him.

    By Jason on November 9th, 2008


    Brennon, make that “sports analysis blogs”.

    Apparently, the panel which chose the finalists felt that at least two “useless” blogs about sports (and their authors) met the criteria that the winning blog should “contain unique and interesting information about you and/or things you are passionate about” — just as they did about the writers of blogs addressing food, language, religion, politics, the law…

    The time, love, and thought put into all of these pages is impressive, especially when you factor in the authors’ classwork, likely other jobs, and “real life”.

    By Paul B. on November 9th, 2008


    Brennon,
    Yes, sports analysis. Major League Baseball is only a multi billion dollar company who enhances its product like most others, with product analysis. So when Team A is about to make a move that could be worth tens of millions of dollars and they turn to some ‘useless sports analyst’ to help them make the decision they probably should just flip a coin on the decision instead since its so obvious that sports analysis is so useless.

    I can’t say that I, as a Mariners fan and fellow blogger, agree with Cameron all the time, but nobody writes a better blog, nobody. If you sweep across the entire country and read every sports blog that there is, nobody gets more national attention than USSM, and no other blog can statistically analyze better than Cameron.

    Nobody deserves it more than Dave Cameron.

    Monte…you use some big words, but you don’t make much sense. You also seem to have a bizarre amount of hatred for a poor baseball blogger.

    Oh, and I think you mean “surely” not “surly,” “dominate” rather than “dominant,” and “sheer” instead of “shear.”

    Dave! Cameron! Dave Cameron! Do it! Seriously, the only sports blog I check every day, and I’m not even a Mariners fan!

    By Wookster on November 10th, 2008


    Vote for Dave Cameron.. He took my virginity

    By Bobocar on November 10th, 2008


    I agree with Brad regarding Thomas Peters blog. His blog really is a waste of time.

    By m. snively on November 10th, 2008


    hey, vote for Snively, he writes well.

    By Hiral Patel on November 10th, 2008


    I voted for Dave Cameron. I first found out about USS Mariner from ESPN.com where there was a baseball chat going on. Someone asked about a possible trade, and what the blogosphere was saying about it. Well, I want to say it was Rob Neyer (but it could have been someone else) said that the M’s would be much better off just putting Dave Cameron and the USS Mariner staff in charge. And that they were the best blog on the net.

    Well, I hope we prove them right.

    SNIVELY!!!

    By Abdel-karim on November 10th, 2008


    Jerry…To use paraphrase Cameron’s typical rejoinder, you know less about Cameron’s cesspool characterization than you think.

    By Happy Camper on November 10th, 2008


    Someone has a man crush! It’s cute in a kinda creepy, childish way Happy.

    I would have voted for Pamela Aghababian on the strength of the Chocolate Pumpkin Cups recipe alone posted on Cave Cibum, but alas, we are only allowed one vote and mine was cast in favor of Dave Cameron.

    Cameron’s content is consistently thought provoking but the post that he was nominated for exemplifies the power of the blogoshpere. In the realm of “baseball” analysis, the masses are gravitating away from the big entities like ESPN and even local newsprint in favor of the more in depth, specialized, and a great majority of the time, more intellectually edifying content of blogs. USSmariner is among the elite in this regard and is bookmarked by a great many within the industry (both baseball and the media that covers the sport). In fact, the post being considered for the scholarship actually was discussed internally by the Mariners as the progress of one of their best pitchers was being considered.

    Another sheep to the flock, Dave got my vote, sorry kiddies.

    By Luvleggs on November 10th, 2008


    In the world of online baseball writing, the U.S.S. Mariner stands as one of the few anyone would call “required reading,” MSM or otherwise. Vote David Cameron, even if you don’t like him or his team.

    By Andrew on November 10th, 2008


    I love baseball, and it was a heavenly day in 2004 when I came across http://www.USSMariner.com. Thought provoking? Yes. Engaging? Check that. Dave Cameron is to be commended for his contribution to baseball history and for making it accessible.

    By SeaGal44 on November 10th, 2008


    Happy Camper, Brennon, CRA,

    Thanks for demonstrating why we aren’t voting for YOU here. I certainly hope that internet trolling is its own reward, because you sure mustn’t believe in karma.

    By Michael on November 10th, 2008


    Where can I get my yard signs?
    And can I get them electrified, like that McCain/Palin supporter, so that people get electrocuted if they try & steal one???

    Enough with the campaigning, people. A boring waste of time – everyone who votes is there to vote for one specific person.
    It’s not a quality-of-blog contest, it’s a how-many-people-can-you-get-to-vote-for-you contest.

    David’s Found in Translation reflects his enthusiasm for language learning and education. It’s been a great way to reach out to the Berkeley community and beyond.

    By Ryan H on November 10th, 2008


    Wow, for being a Happy Camper, you really hold a grudge. One would think Dave insulted your mother, not Baseball Prospectus.

    Dave Cameron and co. author an intelligent, constantly updated, and insightful blog that is highly regarded in the baseball community.

    Vote Dave Cameron.

    By Jerry on November 10th, 2008


    One thing I can vouch for — if he wins, Cameron’s not gonna take that 10 grand and blow it on beer. Now me, OTOH, were I eligible and popular enough…

    I disagree with Dave quite a bit – and I’m definitely not one of his or DMZ’s “sheeple”. But having met him and spent a decent amount of time “offline” with him, there’s no finer person in the world that deserves this. Go get ‘em Dave!

    I’m not a Mariners fan, but I do read USS Mariner. I think that’s a testament to David Cameron’s quality as a blogger.

    By Minda on November 10th, 2008


    I’m not a Mariners fan, and I really have no interest in whether or not the team does well. However, I check USS Mariner several times a week (and consider it one of my favorite baseball blogs) because I really appreciate Cameron’s style, particularly how he blends hard statistical analysis with a healthy dose of pragmatism about what can actually happen for the team. His take is usually not just a sabermetric look at the team that decides, “Ugh, we suck!” Rather, it’s a more nuanced look at how the team could improve and why fans of an admittedly down-in-the-dumps franchise should have some hope.

    I voted for Thomas Peters a very deserving young Catholic man

    As you can see from the blog, Tom has most recently appeared on CNN, BBC World News, The Today Show & MSNBC.com, and has also appeared in Our Sunday Visitor, National Catholic Reporter, News Busters, LifeSiteNews, Inside Catholic, Busted Halo, Huffington Post, Catholic Exchange, and National Catholic Register, etc.

    I feel it is so important that we encourage our young people particularly if they show a desire to spread the faith, and are smart at doing this.

    By Matt Martini on November 10th, 2008


    CRA says that 100 of the readers of USS MARINER are Dave Cameron’s sheep.
    A cursory perusal of the comments on Dave’s recent preference of BETANCOURT over LOPEZ appears to show that that’s not the case.

    By John Delahanty on November 11th, 2008


    Hey CRA
    If you really want to see something laughable (and depressingly pathetic if you are a fan) just look at the previous few years of Mariners management. Hopefully 2008 was the peak of laughs – $100+ million payroll and 101 losses. If you read more of Dave Cameron you would understand just how bad the Mariners are, and you would know why.

    By Claudia on November 11th, 2008


    David has committed himself to language learning and has been a subject near and dear to him for almost as long as I can remember (I’ve known him since childhood.) His dedication to an area largely ingored, if not openly rejected, in US culture–where “English Only” proponents are far more vocal–is highly commendable and evidence of his steadfast passion for this subject.

    By Linda Shoemaker on November 11th, 2008


    “I voted for and encourage others to vote for the most deserving Citizen, volunteer, and contributer to society ”

    that of course assumes that you can tell, based upon the tiny slice of a person’s life that a blog exposes, just what they contribute to society.

    By msb on November 11th, 2008


    “Daily KOS endorsed him as the only progressive candidate for the award.”

    False assumption. Just because the others don’t blog about politics doesn’t mean they’re not progressive. Besides, I thought it was the skill of the blogger, not the author’s subject or beliefs that we are voting on here.

    By Brian on November 11th, 2008

    By St. Peter's Helpers on November 11th, 2008


    @ Happy Camper –

    You keep bringing up the BP fallout, but if memory serves, isn’t that related to their throwing DMZ under the bus over the Pete Rose story? DMZ got jobbed on that and was made a scapegoat. Dave’s sticking up for his pal. Can you blame him?

    By Brent on November 12th, 2008


    I wish to vote for the eminently deserving Brian Switek. However, a bug is preventing me from voting. All I can see are the resulting tallies/percentages. I can’t see the voting mechanism that is supposed to precede it.

    Judging from some comments at Brian’s blog, it seems that many others are experiencing the same problem, specifically several would-be Switek supporters. It would appear that if someone else at your same IP has already voted — as might be the case if you have a shared IP in an institutional setting, e.g., students who access the Internet through their university’s IP — then any subsequent votes are blocked as “repeats.”

    This concerns me. It would be a shame if a widely appreciated and deserving blogger were kept from winning by a voting mechanism that effectively but erroneously disqualifies most of that blogger’s supporters. I hope this can be looked into and some kind of adjustment made.

    I post this in case others are having the same problem and are initially mystified as I was.

    After Cameron blogged that BP was a cesspool of human beings that suck at living, DMZ admitted that BP was misunderstood, then deleted Cameron’s cesspool characterization, which was not one of the blogosphere’s finest moments.

    Back after a few days to check progress on my boy Dave Cameron. I see that the angry hordes have been sent to slay those who would soil the internet with blasphemy. Sounds a bit more like a gaggle of hand-maidens caterwauling over the funeral pyre of a fallen knight. Glad to see that gaming the poll isn’t beneath the good ship.

    Happy Camper, I’m starting to suspect that you’re one of the trolls that frequents the Seattle Times website. Which one are you, Logan, Mr. X, or tugboatcritic?

    Seems that over 6,000 people don’t care about Mr. Cameron’s stance on Baseball Prospectus (either that or they agree with his assessment). Could it be his personal feelings about that particular publication has no bearing on the level of analysis he puts into his work?

    By Lane on November 12th, 2008

    By Joe Six-Pack on November 13th, 2008


    Can someone tell what is so horrible about a sports blog getting recognized? For those of you generalizing, you haven’t read the baseball blog in question. It’s not “sportswriting” as you know if from your local broadsheet. There’s humor, there’s math… yes! both! And the guy has built a genuine community there. My housemates would vote for it too if this thing didn’t penalize us for sharing an ISP ID…

    By James on November 13th, 2008


    @ Lane –

    I doubt that there are over 6000 individuals who have voted for Cameron. Those that have probably don’t know about Cameron’s blogged personal opinion that BP is “a cesspool of human beings that suck at living.”

    And they probably don’t know Cameron’s blogged personal opinion of Cy Young Lincecum. One year ago: “Lincecum, the most overhyped prospect in the history of time? Very possible. If everyone who loves Tim Lincecum and is convinecd that he’s the next great HOF pitcher could all just go move into a community without internet acccess together, that’d be awesome. Thanks.”

    If blogged personal opinions are irrelevent to the disbursement of scholarships for quality blogging, then to use a typical Cameron rejoinder, just feel free to ignore his personal opinions.

    By Happy Camper on November 13th, 2008


    If you’d like to direct me to the baseball analyst that’s never made a bold claim about a prospect that’s been proven wrong I’d love to see this seer of yours. The majority of the analysis Dave and USSM have done regarding the M’s over the last few years has been proven to be spot on.

    By NorthoftheBorder on November 13th, 2008


    Happy Camper,

    I happily voted for Dave and was aware both that he has had a major fallout with BP (as have many other people I like and respect – General consensus seems to be that BP is not run by very nice people these days) and was not as bullish on Lincecum during the 2006 draft as others. He’s still a good guy and a damn fine analyst.

    By JH on November 13th, 2008


    So, Happy Camper, are you accusing Mr. Cameron’s readers of rigging this poll? That’s a mighty serious claim to make.

    What did Dave do to you to upset you this much? Seems like you’ve got a grudge that goes much, much deeper than his take on Baseball Prospectus. I suspect you’re merely a person that hates sabermetric analysis in general. It just so happens that this poll features one of the field’s biggest proponents.

    The USSM is a blog that is extraordinarily thought provoking. Unfortunately, your hatred towards Mr. Cameron seems to have blinded you to the fantastic work that appears on that particular blog. Shame, really. In the end it’s only you that misses out.

    By Lane on November 13th, 2008

    David Mauro is a great guy with a bright future ahead of him–especially if he goes to UT. Even if he follows his dad’s footsteps and goes to Texas A&M he deserves the scholarship. Of course we would like to benefit from his political participation here in Capitol City. In either case, I vote for him.

    He’s still a good guy and a damn fine analyst. – By JH on November 13th, 2008

    “Damn fine analyst” is a stretch for someone who “misunderestimated” Cy Young Lincecum, not only in 2006 but as recently as September 2007. While not a ringing endorsement of his judgement, it’s more excusable than “BP is a cesspool of human beings that suck at living”, so “good guy” is a stretch for someone who can get ugly so quickly, in this case over what DMZ said were no issues at all.

    In terms of clarity, style and explication – Cameron writes well. In terms of content – if he were as “spot on” as his fans here claim, then he’d already be in some club’s employ – provided he wasn’t fired for failing to draft Lincecum :). In terms of character – I’m not saying it’s poor, just that his blogging behavior is not exemplary enough to justify $10,000.

    Gaming the poll?

    If someone were gaming the poll there would be a 20,000 vote lead by now. I see no evidence of poll gaming here. The rate of voting has followed an entirely natural looking pattern.

    By Evan on November 14th, 2008


    “I doubt that there are over 6000 individuals who have voted for Cameron.”

    You fail to grasp the reach of Dave’s work. Baseball blogs across the continent have praised him and encouraged their readers to vote. A major Seattle newspaper’s web site has championed him. His candidacy got a mention by a writer on ESPN.com. Mainstream media exposure for a blogger and his ideas is exactly the sort of thing this scholarship is supposed to reward, isn’t it?

    By Sylvius on November 14th, 2008

    By Chris on November 14th, 2008


    Happy Camper, if you’ll recall *why* Dave Cameron was opposed to drafting Lincecum, it wasn’t because the guy can’t pitch — it was because he doesn’t expect him to last long.

    So far, he’s done nothing to prove Dave wrong.

    By The Ancient Mariner on November 14th, 2008

    So far, he’s done nothing to prove Dave right.

    Convinced of an in-house prediction of a Cy Young performance within a few years of the draft – what a top sabermetrician should be able to do – ANY club would draft INDEPENDENT of Cameron’s expectation that the draftee wouldn’t “last long”. Bank it.

    I don’t like baseball but I voted for Cameron in protest of trolls.

    By Bob on November 15th, 2008


    I agree with some here that a web poll probably is not the best way to award a $10,000 scholarship. It seems as if such an award should be handed down by an appointed board that objectively discusses those nominated and comes to a consensus who the best candidate is. Democratic? No. But given how prone “contests” like these are prone to fraud and never-ending meaningless campaigning, it seems as if it is a better choice.

    That said, the blogger I am most familiar with in this contest is (unsurprisingly) Dave Cameron. Both the haters and the unconditional supporters have good points as to why or why not he is the right choice. Without a doubt, Cameron is an excellent baseball mind who has selflessly contributed a large portion of his time eradicating baseball ignorance using a variety of methods and striving to better evaluate all aspects of the game. He is well-liked by a majority of the sabermetrics community and I’m skeptical that more than a handful of people find him to be a “fraud”. However, he certainly can be irritatingly arrogant and inflammatory… even toward his own readers. There are numerous occasions where he has come off as crass or inhospitable toward opposing viewpoints. I don’t feel as if this should be a disqualifying factor, because, frankly, it has nothing to do with what this contest is about.

    I agree with Dave on many of his ideas and much of his analysis. I also disagree with him often. I’ve met Dave and spent some time with him in both a baseball and non-baseball capacity. He has personality strengths and weaknesses, but so does every other blogger here. So, enough with the flaming, enough with the blind support. Go to every blog listed here and go to USSM and figure it out for yourself.

    Instead of bashing and putting down the candidates for the scholarship, I believe this board should be used to post reasons we should vote for these fine candidates. What it has become is a series of attack on people you may not even know. Obviously each candidate deserves to be on the list, and each candidate is getting their share of votes. Instead of wasting your time as well as all of ours, give us a good reason to vote for one of the other candidates rather than the few that you have been using to attempt to soil a candidates reputation. Mr. Cameron is a fine blogger, and I have been reading since the beginning and he is truly deserving of this award. The means for deciding it has been set, and your childish remarks and bad blood towards him are just causing ill-will and annoyance to many.

    This contest should be about the good qualities the group of fine bloggers has been able to showcase, not their faults. We have all had moments of emotion where things may have been said, published, or done in anger. It’s human nature, and I’m sure each of the names on here is guilty of the same. If this were a contest of who was the most perfect, there would be no winner, for we all have had our ups and downs. Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone, as one great man once said. If those who wish to soil reputation through this message board meet this criteria, you should certainly also have the power to change the vote to your candidate with a snap of your fingers.

    My vote goes to Mr. Cameron because he has changed my one major aspect of my life, and I can truly say contributed to making me a more knowledgeable and well rounded individual on the topic of baseball as well as other parts of my life.

    Happy Camper, you are a piece of garbage. Your penny ante complaints about Dave are laughable, and you need a serious attitude adjustment.

    You deserve a good old fashioned Seattle beating, and a hot cup of Starbucks right in the face. It’d be worth the 5 dollars to see you screaming in pain, and blind you piece of SHlT!

    David Mauro is a great blogger of ideas!

    By Blogger on November 15th, 2008


    Cameron writes a tremendous blog with an enormous readership. Anyone who suspects foul play should check out the page-view numbers for USSM and the other contenders. Not everyone agrees with him, like this happy camper character, but it’s not about agreement or congeniality, or even being right all the time is it?

    It’s about putting in a tremendous amount of effort day in day out to produce something that people are interested in reading. And it looks like more people are interested in reading his work than that of any other writer here (which is no knock against them).

    Also, hc, maybe you should start a blog about why you dislike David Cameron – you might get a scholarship out of it!

    By amused on November 15th, 2008


    Dailykos is run by Markos Moulistas Zuniga, a world class smear merchant who is despised not only by Republicans but by most Democrats. Therefore my vote goes to David Cameron although I’m sure Mr. Mauro is a decent guy. He is just associated with the wrong person here.

    By Sensible Sam on November 16th, 2008


    My vote is for David Mauro. In years where most people were happy to sit back and kvetch pointlessly, David has organized, informed and inspired. Arguably, the efforts of David and those like him have led to the overwhelming shift in the population away from right-wing propaganda and towards faith and hope in the future.

    Great job, David!! No matter what happens in this contest, please know that you have made a difference, and are appreciated for it.

    By Laura C on November 16th, 2008


    This is the most unfortunate way to award a scholarship, as internet polls are easily manipulated with proxy assistants and amounts to nothing more than who has wider marketing capabilities.

    College Scholarships should be ashamed of this lazy, worthless approach to rewarding quality work.

    For those who argue that baseball blogging isn’t as important as progressive blogging, I ask this:

    If baseball isn’t vital to our national security, why then does the President throw out the first pitch? Also for what it’s worth, Cameron is a huge proponent of cutting edge defensive metrics.

    Vote Cameron- Progressive economics-strong on defense!!!!!

    I was going to vote for Cameron after reading his site for a few years now, but after the sad, pathetic smear campaign he is waging on his site, not only will I not vote for him, I am done reading his site.

    I voted for Snively because he seems to have a lot of support here and clearly needs the votes.

    To David Cameron and his supports, I am ashamed of the negative campaign you are running, and the bad name you have given to his/your own site. Truly pathetic, and David has shown that he does not deserve such an amazing gift.

    As a long time reader of dKos, BP, USSM, and BOR… Dave Cameron wins this thing hands down. Sorry Mauro – you’re good. Cameron is better. I just wish there had been some kind of judging panel instead of who can get rile up the most people to go freep the poll. There is nothing out there that can compete with the coveted Kos stamp of approval when it comes to getting masses of people to click a button.

    Besides, don’t Mariners fans suffer enough?

    By mg11 on November 16th, 2008


    Umm. Let’s not blame Markos Moulitsas for the format of College Scholarships.org’s contest. Markos served our nation proudly and has created a novel website. He’s no smear merchant. Don’t believe the fox news fear, dailykos is a wonderful website. Cameron was “Shamelessly self promoting” from the beginning of this thing, his supporters should not bash others for doing the same thing. As an Oakland A’s fan and DKos reader I’m happy to vote for David Mauro.

    As far as Cameron goes, I think statistical analysis has been overblown by people like Nate Silver and Billy Beane. I’m happy to see Beane has abandoned his bean counting and given me a reason to be happy to go out and see some games next year.

    The neat thing about Dave Malinowski’s blog is that it highlights observations about his inventive and effective ways of teaching Korean. He brings to your attention many different facets about a language and culture that cannot be ignored through just plain language instruction. He certainly deserves as much support as he can get for furthering the Korean language, and the principles/methods that go into language instruction in general. I hope he wins this scholarship. It is certainly well deserved.

    What a ridiculous way to decide who gets a 5-figure scholarship. You guys should be embarrassed about this.

    By Jack on November 17th, 2008


    I voted for David Cameron of USS Mariner – he’s amazing both for the quantity and quality of work that he produces, to say nothing of his influence in improving the quality of the thinking in an entire group of fans.

    Having said that, and hoping he wins, this is a completely asinine way to award a scholarship. If the idea is to judge the quality of work through a popularity contest, why not look at the traffic of the blogs proposed and leave it at that? It’s a lousy way to judge quality, but it’s still more direct than this, which in effect judges the traffic of the friends and associates of these bloggers.

    Cameron had the power Mariners blogosphere behind him – Mauro had the even more powerful liberal blogosphere. Really, nobody else had a chance, and that’s only tangentially to do with the quality of the work.

    I hope whoever wins (likely Mauro at this point) makes good use of this award, but honestly I hope this ridiculous selection method gets revisited. How about somebody actually makes a real decision on who deserves the award? Because this is a waste of time and bandwidth.

    It took a little research but I was able to find out who was in the lead without voting. Ussmariner (dave cameron’s site) used to be good for updates, but over the years they are less about the team and more about stats, which is fine, but kinda boring. The guys that run that sight are so full of themselves too, they actually claim they coined “King Felix” haha, vote for Mauro!

    By Chet Masters on November 17th, 2008


    David Cameron writes of a quality and quantity that is worthy of recognition. In my opinion his work is a benchmark for both passionate sports blogging and cool headed statistical analysis. I sometimes direct my university students to USS Mariner to understand probability, and other examples of applications for what they learn in stats courses. It is also witty, and somehow maintains a local and national flavor. It is everything a blog should be, and he’s been working hard at it with no renumeration for a long, long time.

    By Gillig on November 17th, 2008


    You would think that a scholarship oriented towards the internet would take advantage of the medium they are promoting and make each of the names above a LINK to the work of the candidate so that those of us who didn’t come here to shill for a particular candidate could have some idea what kind of work each of them does and make an informed decision.

    By My Monday argument for Dave | U.S.S. Mariner on November 17th, 2008


    Okay, so my comment about this voting process was deleted? I was critical – I think this is an awful way of judging a blog’s popularity, much less its quality – but it wasn’t nearly as caustic as a lot of this discussion.

    I’ll say it again. Choosing a recipient for a $10,000 is – or should be – serious business. It should be done on merit. This method is at least three steps away from judging on merit. Popularity is not a good way of judging quality – but even if you’re interested in popularity this isn’t a good way to judge it. Why not just look at the traffic of each blog and just hand out the scholarship based on that?

    Sure, that’s not particularly smart. But it’s at least more direct than what’s going on here, which is effectively measuring popularity of the blogger and the traffic his friends get. Right? Dave Cameron has the power of the Mariners and Seattle sports blogosphere behind him; Dave Mauro has the power of the liberal blogosphere behind him.

    All you’re effectively doing is trying to measure the two against each other. It’s essentially meaningless and a waste of time. It has little to do with the blogger himself. Some of the other bloggers on this list are being judged unworthy of this award because they don’t have a machine behind them like Cameron or Mauro have. I voted for Cameron because his blog is excellent and his contributions have been major – but even had he won this is a ridiculous way to select a winner.

    If you want to offer a scholarship to a deserving party, it’s your responsibility to choose the worthy recipient. Use some judgement. Make a choice.

Lets make this as fair and real and nasty as possible. Nothing is a better use of time than a blogger war! Oh, and Mauro should stop begging everyone on every website he can get on to vote for him. His daddy was a powerful elected official in Texas that later ran for governor. Does he really need the 10k or is this about something else?

    I voted for Dave Cameron because it is the only blog I read everyday. He presents very informed and factually backed up arguments and promotes discussion and analysis of said arguments. Reading USS Mariner has inspired me to learn more about Baseball and question the standard arguments presented by the people in Baseball.

    I took a look around at the blogs written by others doing well in this contest and I was surprised to see how they were more opinion blogs with little to no basis in factual information. I’m sure they are interesting and it is great that they exist, but USS Mariner brings blogging to a whole other level.
