    1. Lance Berkman
    2. Todd Helton
    3. Jim Thome

    I'd say: Yes, No, Yes.

    No, no, yes.

    No, no, yes.

    (And that yes vote was painful to type. :D)

    No. No. probably

    No, yes, yes for what he did to the Tigers alone.

    Three No votes.

    Not necessarily based on what I think, but rather based on how I think the voters will go.

    Close if he's done, could make it easier if he has some baseball in him.
    No, though it's not really fair

    DH thing for Thome?

    Should (off the very top of my head)? Yes, yes, yes.

    Will? No, yes, yes.

    Numbers-wise, Thome is the closest to being a "yes/maybe." Has he been a nice guy to the press? Will some of the voters whine about, yes, the DH thing? Will they hold his lack of a championship against him?

    Both Helton and Berkman - again, based on numbers - seem like the really good (at times great) player who had a nice decade in the majors, a couple of all-star appearances, a couple of top-five MVP finishes, but nothing that truly quickens the pulse. It would be very interesting to compare their power numbers to their contemporaries in this particular era.

    The disparity between Helton's Coors Field numbers and his road numbers also will hurt him

    That's what I was thinking.

    .064 higher batting average at Coors.

    More than .200 higher OPS.
