    Re: No one to the hall this year

    Just popped up on my ESPN iPad app. What a shame Jack Morris and several others.
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    Lame

    BUT....I also don't want tweeners getting in because someone felt the need to vote for someone because their arms were tired from dragging around their soapbox the last 60 days.

    Maddux, Glavine and Frank Thomas next year.

    Im guessing next year will be Maddux, Glavine and Biggio.

    Craig Biggio came closest at 68.2 percent

    Clemens got 37.6 percent and Bonds got 36.2 percent of the vote.

    12% for Sosa-really? That definitely seems really low.

    This election was criminal.

    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.

    Bernie Williams (an incredible player for a dynastic team) and Kenny Lofton (whose career ran concurrent with Biggio and he was every bit as good in the leadoff slot) have fallen off the ballot without ever getting due consideration. They're now joining Lou Whitaker in the ranks of the wrongfully forgotten.

    And the ballot only gets more clogged next year.

    Thomas will get in one day no doubt but my gut tells me that because he was predominately a DH, the voters will hold it against him the first time around.

    Pure roids suspicion. Interestingly, there really isn't any credible evidence or serious allegation against him. It's just widespread assumption that he juiced. He's guilty until proven innocent.

    Mind you, even if Sosa was 100% clean, Larry Walker was better, and that doesn't get anywhere near the recognition it should.

    Baseball players get what they deserve here.

    To leave everybody guessing as to who was and who wasn't....it's their own fault.

    It's not our responsibility to pick through the garbage.

    I'd like to see Maddux challenge Seaver's vote %.
