And this is a surprise? :-D J/k MOOKIE.

5% needed to stay on ballot. Boggs is a lock. Ryno should be in, but you never know. It's a shame Goose isn't in. Only a few better imo.

SWARMEE nice to see you again. Donny will never get in HOF imo, unless he buys a ticket. His numbers aren't comparable to HOF 1b.

as he was for me as well...i wore #3 all through little league cause of him...and since i could only see baseball on TBS i grew up mainly a braves fan and mostly a murphy fan.....but those were some rough years in the mid to late 80's

2005 is definitely Sandberg's and Boggs' year. Next year should be the real interesting vote since there are no surefire first ballot guys that become eligible. Mattingly, Dawson, Rice, or maybe a darkhorse like Santo will get in (even though I don't think any of them should be). 2007 is already set in stone though with Ripken, Gywnn, and McGwire becoming eligible.

IMHO, these are the HOF worthy players:

Wade Boggs
Rich Gossage
Dale Murphy
Jim Rice
Ryne Sandberg

Course, I only expect Boggs and Sandberg to actually make it.

I agree on all but Murphy. To me he will always be one of those really good players who aren't quite Hall of Famers.

What no votes for Jeff Montgomery??? Ok big homer here ;-D

No world series but a lot of saves on a crappy team. That should mean something right?

Jim Rice a HoFer? Jose Canseco had a better career than Rice. How come no one is touting Jose for the HoF? Yes, I know Jose is not yet eligible. :-°

Murphy....no. He was like burning phosphorus extremely bright for a short time, then burnt out.

In twenty years when there are a large ammount of players with 500+ homeruns he will be forgotten. :,-(

Gossage and Sutter are HOF no questions asked. Gossage was plain nasty in his day. Sutter was first with split finger . These closers( especially Gossage ) earned their saves.

I agree w/ Pogo on this one Murphy along with Mattingly and Will Clark (SF's version of Dale Murphy)
