If Maddux didn't break Seavers record I guess no one ever will, interesting seeing Piazzas big jump while the abusers he's unfairly lumped in with all drop ( Clemons, Bonds, Sosa, McGuire) which tells me they'll never get in. Next year we'll see Randy Johnson along with Biggio and Piazza enshrined with Pedro Martinez being a strong possibility.

Sosa. Palmero and Mattingly get less than 10% of the vote so he's off the ballad now? IMO Mattingly is not a HOFer

Johnson & Pedro are virtual locks. Smoltz & Biggio should get in. Don't think Piazza will get in next year with those 4 above him...

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?

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...
