    Who makes the 2006 Baseball Hall of Fame?

    the first timers for '06 are:

    Rick Aguilera, Tim Belcher, Albert Belle, Will Clark, Alex Fernandez, Gary Gaetti, Dwight Gooden, Ozzie Guillen, Juan Guzman, Orel Hershiser, Gregg Jefferies, Lance Johnson, Doug Jones, Roberto Kelly, Mickey Morandini, Hal Morris, Jaime Navarro, Luis Polonia, Mike Stanley, Walt Weiss, John Wetteland, Mark Whiten

    some of the ones still trying:

    Bert Blyleven, Dave Concepcion, Andre Dawson, Steve Garvey, Goose Gossage, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Willie McGee, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Jim Rice, Bruce Sutter, Lee Smith, Alan Trammell, John Wetteland


    I'd have to say Hershiser for sure..

    As for Concepcion, I still can't see how they could put Ryne Sandberg in over him. If they continue to water down the Hall by putting in basically "good players of their era" instead of great ones, I'd say put Andre Dawson in.

    there is a difference between who will make it, and who i would like to see there.
    i'd like to see Blylevn, Concepcion, Dawson, Goose, T.J., Sutter and Smith make it - show some of the old relievers some love.

    Re: Who makes the 2006 Baseball Hall of Fame?

    If it were up to me, nobody on that list would ever get in, with the possible exceptions of Blyleven, Rice, Gossage and Sutton.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    No one on the list should get in this year.

    Weird... not too many years ago I would have cheerfully bet my house that Doc Gooden and Will Clark would coast into the Hall...You never can tell, fellow citizens, you never can tell...

    Any more, it seems like the HOF committee is hunting for inductees, or that they are under some sort of obligation to yearly vote someone in. If it ain't there, it ain't there.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Who I think will make it ... Sutter.

    Who I believe should make it ... Blyleven, Gossage, Clark, Trammell ... and I've been on the fence, but I'll go with Murphy too.

    George Grande's gotta do SOMETHING that weekend of HOF Induction. If not, George is going to tell jokes or sing & dance. I'd rather induct someone, thank you.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Bert Blyleven deserves the nod.

    Re: Who makes the 2006 Baseball Hall of Fame?

    The guys I'm sold on as Hall of Famers: Blyleven, Gossage, Trammell.
    The guys I'm on the fence with as far as the HOF: Sutter, Dawson, Rice, Parker, Clark, Murphy, Morris, Concepcion, Mattingly, John.
    The guy who has the numbers that I just can't see as Hall of Famer, at least not yet: Belle.
    The guys I can't ever see as Hall of Famers: Everyone else on the above list.

    From the moment I first laid eyes on Juan Guzman, I thought "That man has 'hall of fame' written all over him."
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Don't worry, this is the year they elect about two dozen Negro Leaguers so there will be players getting in regardless of what the BBWAA decides. George Grande should very well be in Cooperstown, and we should get ourselves a weekend of not-so-terrible Reds TV broadcasts.

    Bruce Sutter and Jim Rice probably have the best shots.

    Though Blyleven and Trammell should be and the BBWAA deserves to be eliminated from the voting due to oversights like these. It's full-on ridiculous those two guys aren't already enshrined.
