Biggio should have been an easy pick. Piazza's clearly getting dinked for roids suspicion. Schilling is getting penalized because the voters are apparently still fascinated with the most meaningless stat out there - pitcher wins.
Biggio and Piazza will eventually get in most likely next year. The HOF voters just for whatever reason are kinda weird about electing a player that is not seen as one the elites of the game ( Bench, Mays, Aaron etc.) on the first ballot. It may be wrong but thats just the way it is.
