    Well officially they need 75% of the vote to be elected. If that's what you meant.

    So far it looks like Alomar, Blyleven and Larkin are the only three in our little poll to make in.

    The poll is open until 1-5-10 so you can still vote if you haven't already.

    It looks like Blyleven has lost a few percentage points since my last post.

    I know everyone has a right to their opinion but I can't understand why anyone would think Blyleven doesn't deserve to be in the HOF.

    a lil late now but this is from Joe Posnanski

    Edgar Martinez

    Verdict: Yes

    I thought that Edgar would be a close call for me because he spent so much of his career as a designated hitter. In the end, though, it wasn't close at all. Because Martinez was SUCH a good hitter, that I simply think it trumps everything. His .418 on-base percentage is 12th all-time among players with 2,000 or more games.

    I'll just give you one chart: Here is the complete list of non-Hall of Famers who played in 2,000 games and hit .310 or better and had an on-base percentage better than .400.

    1. Edgar Martinez.

    Yep. That's it. Every other player who did it -- Ruth, Williams, Gehrig, Hornsby, Cobb, Foxx, Musial, Speaker, Heilmann, Collins, Waner, Gehringer, Boggs -- they're all in the Hall of Fame. They're all slam dunk Hall of Famers. Martinez wasn't a good hitter, and he wasn't a great hitter. He was a legendary hitter. To me, that trumps the DH role.
