Schilling? Bonds?...

    The only way Bonds should get into the Hall of Fame is as a paying customer. And who’s ballot is this including Clemens?
  • Ballot looks good to me. I go back and forth on Vizquel.

    The ballot belongs to C. Trent and he posts a pretty lengthy thread on Twitter. https://twitter.com/ctrent ;

    He usually posts his ballot and talks about his rational.  Agree or not I like that he does this and he seems to put a lot of thought into it.

    PED's aside he draws a weird line between Sheffield and Sosa when they have nearly identical career numbers.

    Can't see the image.  But imo, Bonds should be in, Schilling should not.  Schilling is a borderline candidate to me.  And Vizquel can buy a ticket to see Bonds' bust.

    No love for Latroy Hawkins?!?!?!?!?
  • Huge snubs of Michael Cuddyer and Torii Hunter.

    Eddie,  I like the picks.   I would vote for Scott Rolen, but admit he could be considered not quite HOF material.

    I was thinking Torii Hunter as well...it's a hard sell, but feels right

    Totally agree. He was the glue on that team. Fielding a given, but a lot of clutch hits.

    Is there a baseball reason not to select Schilling?

    His clutch hits are now allegedly saved for his wife...allegedly.

    I would have voted for an old Mariners clubhouse buddy - Omar Vizquel - a Venezuelan superstar!

    I'd scold you, but he kind of set you up for that.

    My vote would include Barry Bonds, Roger Clemons, Sammy Sosa, Manny Ramirez, Omar Vizquel, and Torii Hunter, ln that order.
