Greg Maddux will not be a unanimous Hall of Famer.

And no, it's not because of a voter strategically using a ballot spot to save a candidate in danger of falling off rather than propping up Maddux who's a sure-thing. It's not even of the stupid "won't vote anyone first ballot" school. It's even worse than that.
