    Concepcion included on Expansion Era ballot for Hall of Fame

    I just received an e-mail from the "Inside Pitch" of the National Baseball Hall of Fame announcing the 12 names on the 2014 Expansion Era ballot for the Hall of Fame.
    The six players on the ballot are Dave Concepcion, Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Dave Parker, Dan Quisenberry and Ted Simmons.
    Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa, Billy Martin and Joe Torre are the former managers on the ballot, which also includes Marvin Miller and George Steinbrenner.

    Is there an "expansion era ballot" every year?

    There are good arguments for all 6 of those guys to be in the HOF. Simmons has been a bit forgotten over time but has a very impressive resume.

    6 of his 10 most similar players are in the Hall.

    Every 3 years.

    Before 1946. (Pre-Integration era)
    1947-1972. (Golden era)
    1972- (Expansion era.)

    Next year is the Golden era.

    I would say LaRussa and Torre are shoo ins. Possibly Cox to.

    A strong case could be made for Simmons but I doubt he makes it.

    Davey is my #2 all time fav player but unfortunately he just misses my vote.

    I'm sorry but if McGwire and company are kept out because of steroids, I would keep out TLR as well.

    And if Ruzutto and Ozzie Smith are in, there is no reason Davey isn't HOF material.

    I seem to recall him failing a driving test a few years ago.

    That won't keep him out of the HOF, otherwise half the place could be empty

    I guess Torre doesn't belong either since Clemens cant get in.

    Rizzuto doesnt belong but just because him being in lowered the bar means you should keep inducting less deserving players.

    Joe Torre should make the HOF as a player. He was better than Simmons. Add in his managerial career and he ought to be an automatic. Bobby Grich continues to be criminally overlooked.

    It will be interesting to see if Lasorda pushes harder for Garvey or John. And I consider it Joe Morgan's personal duty to get Concepcion elected.

    Any thoughts on Steinbrenner?

    My votes would go to both Cox and Concepcion.
