We recently asked you to list your choices for the 10 greatest Dodgers of all time, and vote you did, as we received an amazing 12,231 ballots. So many people voted that we have decided to expand the list from the top 10 to the top 20. Each weekday at 11 a.m., a new player will be listed as we count down all 20. Remember, any Dodger, Brooklyn or L.A., was eligible, including managers, owners, announcers, etc. Points were assigned based on where you listed the person on the ballot.

" More important in his development, though, was that Winfield was raised half a block away from the Oxford Playground in St. Paul, Minn. Oxford Playground had a ball field.

Clemens, 39, is only the sixth major leaguer since 1900 to start 16-1, the first since Dave McNally did it for the Baltimore Orioles in 1969.
