When you say "this year" you mean the 2012 ballot, right? Because every writer I have heard speak has somewhat implied that they got it right this year by not voting in Bonds and Clemens. After Alomar didn't get in (and I think he missed it by two or three votes), I recall a lot of writers being upset at the process.
