Hall of Fame

Here is a quick look at the stacked 2011 Hall-of-Fame ballot and who I would definitely vote for, who I would definitely leave off, and who is borderline (in order from top-to-bottom):

Yes No Borderline
Roberto Alomar Dale Murphy Alan Trammell
Jeff Bagwell Jack Morris Barry Larkin
Bert Blylevan Dave Parker Edgar Martinez
Mark McGwire John Franco Larry Walker
Tim Raines Juan Gonzalez Fred McGriff
Rafael Palmeiro Don Mattingly John Olerud
  Harold Baines Kevin Brown
  Tino Martinez  
  Bret Boone  
  Raul Mondesi  
  Bobby Higginson  
  Al Leiter  
  Marquis Grissom  
  Benito Santiago  
  Lee Smith  
  Carlos Baerga  
  Charles Johnson  
  Kirk Rueter  
  B. J. Surhoff  
  Lenny Harris  

My “Yes” group is the group I would vote for 100% of the time, no questions asked.  The “No” group is the group that I would say no to 99% of the time.  I may give a vote once or twice to a couple of the guys if I was given 1000 votes but that’s about it. 

My “Borderline” group is a group that has compelling cases for but, me being a “Small Hall” guy, I am on the fences.  Yes, The borderline group, even some of the no group, are better than some guys already in the HOF but that is not an argument for someone to be enshrined.  The only thing that accomplishes is watering-down the HOF, and I am not about that.

If I were a Small-Hall guy I would probably vote for my borderline group, but I am not a Small-Hall guy.  As it stands now I would probably vote for Trammell, Larkin, and Martinez.  I plan on making a case for each in the “Borderline” group soon.  Stay tuned…
