This is a little ridiculous, IMO. We're not even out of the month of April yet. The online ballots are open until June 29th, so why not start it at the end of May? It's not like you have to allow time for the mailing in and counting of paper ballots.

My LiveJournal, where you can read tons of stuff that you don't give a crap about.
I think the logic is that you can only be elected by the BBWAA after you've been retired for 5 years, and within 20 years of being retired. Once that time frame is past, you can only be elected by the Veteran's Committee.
