    Larry Walker is much more deserving than Helton and his best vote total in his 2 years of eligibility is 22%.

    Helton will be lucky to break 20%.

    The Big Hurt will get in before Helton and the Crime Dog. Parker deserves to be in. If Dawson made it Parker is a YES. HE WAS the best right fielder of his time. Of course Dale Murphy should also be in the Hall of Fame. And Davey Conception.

    Well, he did conceive the bounce throw to first. He's one of the game's pioneers.

    I'm going further into the past, but what about Gil Hodges? I would think he would make an excellent candidate for the Veterans Committee.

    Another candidate would be Ken Boyer. Admittedly he played before I was born, but I have always thought of him as an equal with Ron Santo.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

    If there's such a thing as a "Coors Field effect," and if Rockies players are always going to be judged by it, then there's definitely a Great American Ball Park effect too and Reds players will face the same scrutiny.

    How many pop-fly HRs will Joey Votto hit into the first three rows at GABP over his career that would easily be caught elsewhere? Should that eventually be held against him?
