The HOF ballots the next 4-5 years are weak!

Guys like Rice and Gossage should find their ways in with the weak lists of players eligible.

2006, 08, 09, and 10 have weak classes. 2007 has a solid list.

I bet Rice and Gossage if not others get in some of these years.

I'm curious about Big Mac. I would have thought 2 years ago he was a lock, but he pissed a lot of people off this past year. I think Jose Canseco should get in if Big Mac does. I know Big Mac had over 100 more HRs, but Canseco has a hell of a lot more SBs and they both use Roids.

McGwire is going to be an extremely interesting case. :-?

Canseco will never get him...deserving or not.

My Predictions:


2007: Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr.
2008: Jim Rice, Goose Gossage and Mark McGwire (too many writers are already "Nothing has been proven," so he won't get in on the first ballot, but will get in on second try.
2009: Rickey Henderson
2010: none elected

Mark Grace is a smart classy guy, and an asset to the game of baseball. A hall of famer though? I doubt it.

Mattingly deserves the Hall before Grace.

Rice, Dawson and Mattingly would get in before him. Dale Murphy should before Grace.

If Grace gets in then Will the Thrill should get in.
