Anyone else up for HOF Ballot thread?

My vote (if I had one)

Bonds
Clemens
Maddux
Glavine
Frank Thomas
Piazza
Biggio
Trammel
Kent
Bagwell

Who I think will make it in tomorrow?

Maddux
Glavine

And that's it because the BWAA is made up mostly of vindictive crybabies.

One writer had a ballot with just Morris, saying that he refuses to vote for anyone involved int he steroid era.

Ignoring that Morris' career overlapped with Maddux's for nine years, ignoring that Maddux looked NOTHING like a PED user, and ALSO ALSO ignoring that TIME RAINES HAD VERY, VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH THE PED ERA.

Here's my "ballet", with an star beside those who I think will actually get in.

MADDUX*
Glavine*
Thomas*
Biggio*
Bagwell
Piazza
Bonds
Clemens
RAINES. RAINES.
Martinez.

Maddux
Bonds
Clemens
Thomas
Glavine
Mussina
Bagwell
Schilling
Raines
Piazza

Maddux, Thomas, and Glavine make it.

If I had unlimited votes, I would consider voting for the pitcher on the ballot that contributed the most to the 1992/93 Toronto playoff runs: Mike Timlin.



I am why James is crying.

I saw the stuff with the writer who only voted for Morris. He is an idiot and has since said he will no longer vote for the HOF.

1) Greg Maddux ... the most deserving name on a Hall of Fame ballot in years. Has never been mentioned in PED discussions, meets all the numbers, great character guy, brilliant, dominant, what else is there to say?

2) Barry Bonds ... greatest hitter of the modern era.

3) Roger Clemens

4) Tom Glavine

5) Frank Thomas

6) Jeff Bagwell

7) Curt Schilling

8) Mike Mussina

9) Tim Raines

10) Mike Piazza

WOULD ALSO VOTE FOR IF NOT FOR STUPID ARCHAIC VOTING RULES

Larry Walker, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Jeff Kent, Fred McGriff, Edgar Martinez

WOULD NOT VOTE FOR 15TH BEST PLAYER ON ANY TEAM THEY EVER PLAYED ON

Jacques Jones, JT Snow, Todd Jones

Well, that definitely wasn't Lou Whitaker. He pretty much craps all over Morris.

And he plus one other person cost Biggio his spot - Biggio was two votes short.

Yup. As a Twins fan I loved Jacque Jones, but no way does he deserve a vote. I'm happy that Maddux/Glavine/Thomas got in. Biggio got robbed and its a travesty that Bonds and Clemens aren't in.

Maddux, Thomas, Glavine, Raines, Biggio, Bagwell, Piazza, Bonds and Clemens were locks for me. That left a real dogfight for the tenth spot between Mussina, Schilling, E-Mart, Trammell and McGwire --- all deserve it. Frankly, I'm very open to voting for Walker and McGriff too, so this max-10 rule is garbage. It already cost poor Biggio a spot in the Hall, though surely he gets in next year, right?
