    The results for the new 2014 class will be announced on Wednesday.

    I really hope Jack Morris doesn't get in. He doesn't deserve it, but a bunch of BroncoBob types will probably vote him in

    I think the writers can vote for up to ten players, if I could vote I would submit the following:
    Of the returnees Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Lee Smith, Mike Piazza
    New comers Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine and Jeff Kent
  3. Wild Card

    Wild Card Batting Third

    Yea, I can't believe Jeff Kent has gotten almost no interest from the Hall. Totally underrated.

    Maddux, Glavine, Thomas, Biggio, Piazza, Martinez. Those would be my choices.

    well Maddux won't be getting 100% of the vote either...Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, says he refuses to vote for ANYONE from the "steroid era" whether they were linked to PEDs or not - that includes Maddux (who clearly just blew people away with his 99mph fastballs and beefcake physique). Sigh....

    and on a side note the only vote Gurnick is casting is for Morris lol

    On the plus side, he said he'll never vote again after this year. Woohoo!

    Apparently Le Batard gave his ballot to Deadspin to fill out through an online poll.

    All of these protest gestures are becoming too much.
  15. Larry

    Larry The Head Fish .

    Never let him vote again

    I think it's comical and should be a gut check for the BBWAA. How is letting a fan poll any worse than a bunch of writers try and clean up split milk? As if only writers can uphold the nebulous criteria they set for players? And for the record, I'm more pissed about Biggio getting slighted than Piazza. The HOF voting process is broken all around.

    LeBatard was banned from future HOF voting.
  18. Biggio should be in. If he were a Yankee, he would have been 1st ballot.
