          The funny thing is, I thought there were TWO relievers on the ballot that were more deserving
          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.

                I don't support Will Clark, but he's definitely deserving of at least being held over.

                2 people actually voted for Gregg Jefferies.

                    Kinda think Goose should have been in as well with Sutter but at least Sutter getting in should open the doors to other relievers....

                    1st pitcher in the HOF never to start a game in the majors...

                          --Really can't see Sutter ahead of Gossage. I'm not a big supporter of Will Clark, but it is a little surprising to see him bounced on his first ballot. I would have guessed he'd get 10-20%.

                            Albert Belle 40 7.7%
                            With the exception of the new players, this is almost the exact order as last year with almost everybody moving up. Only Willie McGee fell and Dave Concepcion jumped a spot. That's my highlight. Sutter I'm not so hot on, not with Smith and Gossage there.

                              Belle didn't even get mentioned on the Hall's website until recently. Poor Joey.
