Help me out with the morality here. Is it okay to vote if I haven’t read all the articles?

That was one of the things bothering me. I want to vote, but I don’t want to have to read 15 articles before doing so.
But then, this is a sports where people voted Harold Baines into the HoF and a couple of writers left Verlander off a Cy Young ballot in 2016.
So vote.
Vote in good conscience knowing that whatever your vote is, it is far from the worst one.

Of course you won’t b the WORST voter, but that’s quite the low standard to have for oneself.

I mean, It’s only 15 pieces. And I would hope you would, at the very least, peruse each of them. Check out the opening and closing paragraphs, look at the graphs and charts, etc. There’s a reason these got picked, so give each piece a couple minutes. There’s no downside.
