I say

Randy Johnson
Barry Bonds
Tom Glavine
John Smoltz
Greg Maddux
Roger Clemens
Mariano Rivera
Alex Rodriguez
Ken Griffey Jr.

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

Mike Piazza
Ivan Rodriguez
Jeff Kent
Pedro Martinez

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.
