“Interrobang” Showdown: Nyjer or Mike?

Citizens:

We have a first in the annals of “Nickname Seeks Player”: a tie. Indeed, Messrs. Nyjer Morgan and Mike Stanton both garnered the exact same number of votes, and that means an urgent, hastily assembled and palpably corrupt run-off is in order. Vote below, but remember: Present your papers to the uniformed constabulary or be walloped by his oxskin glove and placed into a holding pen alongside other foul-smelling members of the newly disenfranchised …


The ward heeler thanks you for voting as instructed. Now leave, lest your fruit cart be overturned daily until you see things our way.

UPDATE: Two commenters have a love of chaos that matches my own. Take it way, citizens:

I say that, before voting, EVERYONE should click on ‘view results’ and then vote for whichever guy is trailing at the moment.

There’s no greater sin than giving yourself a nickname. Well, other than central air.

Are you insinuating that I didn’t do that?

Dayn, do you have a contingency plan for if (and when) this vote ends in a tie?

And does it involve bloodshed?

Zach Sanders

My vote acts as the tiebreaker, right?

RIGHT!?!?

When does voting close?

I want my vote to be the deciding vote and plan on voting the very instant before votes are no longer accepted. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

I’m STILL confused as to why I can’t vote for Mark Kotsay

Woo hoo, I just voted and now the poll is exactly 50-50. Are you proud, Yirmiyahu?

I think that if/when this ends in a tie, we need to actually get messrs Stanton and Morgan to compete in a series of contests of physical, mental, and emotional fortitude to determine the ultimate victor.

As a compromise, I propose a coin flip.

If heads, Morgan is Interrobang !? and Stanton is Interrobang ?!.

If tails, Stanton is Interrobang !? and Morgan is Interrobang ?!.

Additionally, a certified public accountant shall witness said coin flip and certify the result – an uncertified public accountant simply cannot be trusted with a matter of such consequence.
