I'm not really sure what is going on here, guys. There has been some wackiness going on with the voting over the last couple of days. But what we do know is that Jesse Winker has definitely won the #5 spot. The poll is now closed, so we won't see any late night hi-jinks from the Hank bots.
No new names today, but expect a lot of fresh meat to make the list this week. If there is someone you'd like to see added, let us know in the comments.
