Yes to all above, and Glavine gets in first ballot next year, too.

Possibly Thomas as well, but I understand if he falls just short. I could see them doing something stupid and leaving Glvine off on the first ballot though.

Somehow, the voters accomplished less than our Congress. :-[

I don't think Thomas and Glavine get in first ballot given this threshold. Next year Biggio and Maddux and no one else IMO.

Baseball Hall of Fame '13: Who gets the call?

Can't say I'm surprised at this outcome. Just reaffirms that the HOF is a popularity contest and a joke, which most of us knew anyway. Being inundated on Twitter with baseball writers opining about why no one deserved to get in is wearing on my patience though.

No reason Mussina shouldn't go in right next to Glavine.
