  • 2014 BBWAA Election (No Player Limit)

    I thought it would be interesting to compare the poll with the 10-player limit to one without any limit on ballot size. So feel free to vote for any of the eligible candidates who you think are worthy of the Hall.

              Oops, I overlooked Kent. He would have gotten a check from me as well.

                I voted for Bagwell, Biggio, Bonds, Piazza and Trammell. In hindsight, I would have included Frank Thomas.

                I refuse to vote for Roger Clemens or Tom Glavine.

                Edit: whoops, forgot Maddux
                The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                  Interesting. Why Bonds and not Clemens? And why not Glavine?

                    Why not Glavine? I heard he was a nice guy, he got 300 wins, 2 Cy Young Awards, 10 AS Games...

                      Overacting to Game 162 in 2007 for Glavine and the thrown bat incident for Clemens, probably.

                      Nevermind the fact that from 2004-2007, Glavine was over .500 with an ERA+ over 115, made two All Star games, was the Mets' best postseason pitcher in 2006, won his 300th game, and averaged over 3.5 WAR as a 37-40 year old. Met fans should be begging for more pitchers as good as washed-up Glavine was as a Met.

                      So Glavine was one of many Mets with a terrible game or two down the stretch and had the gall to admitt that his life would go on afterwards. It was one bad start with some perspective thrown in...get over it folks.

                        No, that can't be it. Those aren't exactly legitimate reasons to vote against them. That would be so petty.

                        Both Glavine and Smoltz were on the Braves team that beat my Pirates in such a heartbreaking manner in the 1992 NLCS. I've hated the Braves ever since, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't support them for the Hall if they deserve it.

                          Just because it isn't fair doesn't mean that isn't the reason.

                            Oh, I know. I'm just saying you shouldn't necessarily assume it is.
