I'd add Frank Thomas.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Smoltz and Glavine are by no means "sure fire first ballot" HOFers. Other than that, barring injury, the others are locks.

Smoltz needs to be taken off that list. If he retired today, I don't think he makes the Hall of Fame, let alone goes in on his first ballot.

I don't think Bonds is sure fire first ballot. I highly doubt he gets in on the first ballot, if he gets in at all.

Pedro Martinez would probably only get in with a Kirby Puckett type exit. What he has done so far is hall-of-fame quality, but he would have to exit in some sort of a tragic way, where everyone would give him the beneifit of the doubt that he would have continued to put up those numbers.
