Even though Predro was medicore at best vs the Yankees he was all World vs the rest of the AL and is HOF worthy. Wonder if he goes in as an Expo, Sox or Met?

MLB 2014 HOF inductees:...
Maddux - 97.2%
Glavine - 91.9%
Thomas - 83.7%
Biggio real close with 74.8%...
Maddux deserves it. Glavine's numbers will be the yardstick for every borderline case for years. Thomas first primary DH elected clears the way for Papi

Biggio got robbed

Sorry unbiased, the whispers are still there for Mike. Admitting in his book he took andro did not help no matter how honest he was about. And don't cry back whoooo hoooo, we know the difference between the types of roids

Good pick-up forgot about Smoltz he'll get a higher percentage of the vote then Martinez. So it'll be Johnson, Biggio and Piazza next year while Smoltz and Martinez wouldn't be shocks I feel they wont be first ballot they'll get in 2016 along with Griffey Jr

Glavine a borderline case? Besides winning 300 games in an era where SP's had at most, 33 starts, he won 20 games 5 years & won the CYA twice. Not many HOF'ers have those #'s. Borderline, at best, is Don Sutton...

Biggio is the classic modern day stats compiler. Durability is why he has 3K hits. The rest of his #'s are solid but not memorable. Next year should be Biggio's year...

Glavine borderline ? You can't claim a first ballot selection as " borderline " if it's your belief that the voters used Thomas's body of work more as a DH then Edgar Martinez will be in before Ortiz, personally I fell neither will get in. Some in the BBWWA have refused to vote for closers or DH's to this day, I don't see that changing .

Ive already seen Glavine's numbers held up against Mussina, Schilling and Morris'.

Its not like he blows any of them away and in fact some post better numbers than him in multiple catagories.

Still a Massachusetts guy and I'm happy for him. Was suppose to be a hell of a hockey player I'm told.

He rubbed alot of people the wrongway from time to time and that could work against him. No argument against his numbers he will get in
