Those are my picks.  Mattingly for being very dominant for half a decade amidst the steroid abusers, and Rice because he was the dominant AL hitter during his run.

If someone had told me that someday, the two members of the A's late 80's dynasty that'd be considered by anyone for the HOF would be Baines and Parker, I'd have laughed.

I'd love to see Parker go in...he's borderline for me.  I put in all the guys everyone else considers borderline, but not guys I consider borderline because I want them to make it more than they deserve to.

I'll chime in on the extras there too...  Bill King for the Ford Frick, Dick Williams and Billy Martin, managers (Vets Comm) and Dave Kingman and Roger Maris as players for the Vets Comm picks.

I vote:

• Don Mattingly
• Mark McGwire
• Jack Morris
• Jim Rice

I feel so fucking old that half of those guys are even eligible.

And I thought that Gil Hodges already was voted in by the Veteran's Committee?

I don't believe Hodges is in the Hall. He must have pissed somebody off.

I feel ya man.  McGwire's first HR feels like yesterday to me, and Mattingly...jesus.  Never mind guys like Stottlemyre and Justice

He wouldnt be the first.  There's a few guys who deserve to be in that won't get in until a few influential Vets Committee guys COUGHBOBFELLERCOUGH die off.

Not to turn this into a Ron Santo debate, but Ron Santo.

• Bert Blyleven great pitcher on some really bad teams. Those bad teams are the only thins keeping him out.
• Rich Gossage dominant closer when closers went 3 innings prior to the save rules changing 
• Mark McGwire...I don't mind making him wait again, but he deserves to be in.
• Jack Morris one of the best
• Jim Rice he was a fearsome hitter
• Lee Smith great closer in the "new save rule era"
• Todd Stottlemyre  he's a lock.
• Alan Trammell better numbers than Ripken.

Without looking at numbers, I bet these guys, who I'd like to see get in, probably didn't do enough to get in.


• Chuck Finley  was the top lefty in the game for a while, but never really pitched on good teams.  I'm sure his numbers don't really warrant it.

• Andre Dawson would have been a lock if his knees would have held up.

• Dale Murphy he was awesome for a stretch, but probably not for enough years to be in the HOF

• Dave Parker he struck fear into pitchers for a long time, but the drug scandal will hurt him.
