Good stuff by all, and as I predicted there is no shortage of disagreement. Abas seems to easily be the overall #1 but Robles, Hunter, Escobedo, McD and Nickerson all got #2 picks. Like I said, this whole list is made up of guys who could beat each other on any given day so that is no surprise.
Thinking a bit on my picks, I think I may could have overrated Joe D and underrated Nickerson, Esco and to an extent Donahoe, who seemed to give Nickerson a pretty miserable time. Again, Hunter I don't know much about but there's no doubt he was a quality guy so it's no surprise he has his rooters. BUT, #2 may be a bit high for a 1x finalist in my opinion. Who the hell knows though.
