Biggio is in!!


I believe that Biggio is in the 30's and Henderson leads by a lot. He had 79 last time I checked. Soriano holds the single season record with 13 last year.

Closers have been a dicey situation in the Hall voting thus far. Franco deserves consideration but there are some closers hanging around out there on that ballot that should be in before we open it up for some other guys, most notably Sutter, Lee Smith and the Goose.

The Class of 2007

Tony Gwynn - 277.5
Cal Ripken Jr. - 236.0
Mark McGwire - 169.5

The most interesting thing will be who gets in between now and 2007 since there are no surefire first ballot guys who become eligible in the next couple years other than Wade Boggs.

Boggs and Sandberg will most likely get in for 2005.

2006 is where it will get real interesting. There is noone who becomes eligible who is really HoF material in 2006. ( Belle, Will Clark, Gaetti, Hershiser, Strawberry) Andre Dawson or Jim Rice might actually have a chance to get in. Start the Mattingly campaign for 2006 now Yankees fans.

I agree. The main reason I brought up Franco was because of the constant mentions of both Hoffman and Rivera.
