    Here's hoping Gossage gets in.

        Sutter has far and above the best shot. But would it be such a travesty if the Negro League players elected next month have the stage all to themselves?

          Sutter is the only player elected this year....

            Strangely, I thought there were TWO relievers on the ballot who deserved it more
            Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

              Wait a couple years. Gossage will get elected in 2008. Rice, probably, as well.

              The voting:

                Next year will be interesting. Mark McGwire, Cal Ripken JR and Tony Gwynn from what I read on espn.com are all on it for the first time.

                  Ripken and Gwynn are in easy. Both will exceed 90 percent, with Ripken probably over 95%.
                  McGwire will be interesting. His non-testimony in front of congress very well may have hurt him.

                    The fact that Lee Smith wasnt even close is an absolute joke.

                    How the all time saves leader can be left off when Eck and and now Sutter are both in?

                    Oddly enough, I never bought a Sosa jersey, even during his best years.

                      Right you were, CCN, but I was also pulling for Andre Dawson and Bly. I wonder if next year will be their year, same with Rice and Gossage. I've heard arguments both ways, and just no compelling reasons for or against for most of the borderline guys. Congrats to Mr. Splitfinger Sutter, and who might be joining him from the Negro Leagues? I didn't know it was their turn again.

                          Three right out of the gate

                          Thanks, Cap'n, I'll be curious to see if Ol' Buck O'Neil finally gets his due. For years the Hall depended on his selection to determine the Negro League inductees, and his modesty prevented him from nominating himself. Effa Manley might cause somewhat of a stir, but as a pioneer and innovator she was beyond compare. No other woman before or since has owned or managed a professional men's ballclub, and she was highly successful both in terms of wins as well as at the box office. The fellow I've been campaigning for since my youth may have a decent shot: James Raleigh "Biz" Mackey. Without him, the catcher position might never have seen the likes of Campanella, Bench, Berra, Munson, Santiago, Posada, Varitek, I-Rod, and any of dozens more that should thank him for modernizing the most thankless position in baseball.

                          I wonder if the BBWAA have decided they will only induct a maximum of one releiver/closer per year, much as they have done with SS/2B for decades.

                            yeah, I agree. I meant interesting with McGwire. Ripken and Gwynn should be shoo-ins.

                              Could be, if the only Negro Leagues elected are deceased. Only two of the candidates are still living.
