I didn't think Frank would get in on the 1st ballot, but 92% is pretty impressive, with 25% of the votes accounted for. However, he is far from a lock.

According to BBTF, Frank Thomas has appeared on 134 of the 145 ballots that are now public.

With 25.5% of the votes accounted for, there are roughly 424 ballots left (based on last year's numbers). That means Frank would still have to appear on about 293 of the remaining ballots (a little over 69%) in order to finish over 75%. There is still a long way to go, but he's doing way better than I expected. If he gets in, I'm making a trip to Cooperstown.
