    That's going to be fun. I am already clearing my schedule.

    Todd Walker got enough votes to STAY on the ballot?

    If Jack Morris had turned in his 1991 Game 7 performance for the Yankees he'd already be in Cooperstown.

    My response to this is the same as it always is: Name the Yankees who don't deserve to be in the HOF.

    In other names, I see Bonds and Clemens getting in and by a comfortable margin. The five-year wait has worked to their benefit as we now know that what they were doing was happening in every clubhouse in the game.
