BASAs: Goalkeeper of the Year

Welcome to the 2006 BASAs, which stands for Blogosphere American Soccer Awards. I wanted to see how the opinions of US soccer bloggers compared to the real awards, and now I have the results, to be revealed one per day. This is the second year I've done this. Let's get started:

1st 2nd 3rd Points
1 Troy Perkins 6 8 1 55
2 Matt Reis 7 5 1 51
3 Joe Cannon 1 2 2 13
4 Kevin Hartman 1
7 12
5 Dario Sala

2 2
6 Jon Conway

1 1
6 Preston Burpo

1 1

(5-3-1 scoring system)

This was a very close vote. Despite receiving fewer first place votes, Perkins was named on every ballot and prevails over Reis, who was left off by two voters. Perkins was just announced as the official award winner this past Thursday, and now he's the first BASA award winner of 2006.

Hartman was named on over half the ballots, which is surprising to me. However, he still finished behind Cannon in the race for third, which means that the top three here are the same as the three official MLS finalists.

I'm also very surprised that Pat Onstad, last year's winner, did not receive a single vote.
