    Here they are: the good, the borderline and the dregs.

    Albert Belle, Bert Blyleven, Dave Concepcion, Andre Dawson, Steve Garvey, Rich Gossage, Orel Hershiser, Tommy John, Don Mattingly, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Jim Rice, Lee Smith, Alan Trammell.

    Harold Baines, Dante Bichette, Bobby Bonilla, Scott Brosius, Jay Buhner, Ken Caminiti, Jose Canseco, Eric Davis, Tony Fernandez, Tony Gwynn, Wally Joyner, Mark McGwire, Paul O'Neill, Cal Ripken Jr., Bret Saberhagen, Devon White, Bobby Witt.

    I'm very liberal but I'd vote for Gwynn, Ripken, Rice, Blyleven, Dawson, Rice, Gossage and John. I'm on the fence for Morris, Trammell, McGwire and I waffle on Baines.

    Gwynn, Ripken, Dawson, Rice, Gossage would definitely be on my ballot. McGwire possibly.

    Note that I didn't mention Bobby Witt. I feel it's a foregone conclusion he'll break Tom Seaver's vote percentage record.

    Whoda thunk Dante Bichette would be the reason Jose Canseco wouldn't be a first-year guy.
  4. I think the fix will be in so that only Gwynn and Ripken have to share the stage.

    I would vote for Rice and Dawson and maybe Blyleven.

    NO WAY Mark McGwire makes it

    My votes are in bold.

    Eric Davis had the most talent of anyone listed on the ballot. Too bad his injuries took away too much from his career.

    I was wondering when we'd see some love for Jack Morris. He was one of the best in the game for a long time and had some dominant post-season performances. He belongs in the Hall of Fame.

    Good call, Freelance. Those would be my picks too.

    Gwynn, Ripken, Blyleven, Gossage and either Lee Smith or Jack Morris.
  10. David Stern - you have no idea how powerful a man he is.

    The flipside of this ballot is which guy does a heavy sales job just to get one HOF vote like that former Astros pitcher, Jim Deshaies?
