The Hall of Fame would be missing out on a golden opportunity to have one of the best induction classes in recent memory. A class of Biggio, Maddux, Glavine, and Thomas would be one talked about for a long time.

Frank is an elite hall of famer. It would be ridiculous if he doesn't get in first ballot. However, it wouldn't surprise me since the Hall Of Fame is ridiculous. Santo is in, and Thomas would miss the first year. Crazy stuff.

Frank comfortably in with 14.4% of the votes in. C'mon, Hurt!

I hope Frank gets more votes than Glavine because Glavine was very critical of Frank's public stance against PEDs when Glavine was Player's Assoc. President.

Gammons tweeted that Maddux, Bagwell, and Mussina are at the top of his HoF choices.

If he's not picking up all the votes from the saner, public casting crowd...that likely does not bode well.

If Ray Durham isn't making a speech alongside Frank this year, I'm boycotting the Hall forever.

If Mussina played his whole career in Baltimore, would he get any attention for the Hall? I would be willing to bet not.

Bagwell over Frank is just trolling. I always thought of Mussina as very good, but not dominant. He seems like Hall of Very Good.

1) Check the numbers. Mussina and Glavine are near-identical.

2) I personally wouldn't put Bagwell over Frank, but it's a lot closer than you think. Bagwell was a very good baserunner and fielder. Retired earlier than Frank so his counting stats don't quite match up, though.

It's hard to believe that both Bonds and Clemens are getting in this year.

They're not, I was wrong in posting that link; it appears to be a fictional ballot of people associated with that website. The NBC Sports link above shows the most updated results (as of yesterday, Bonds and Clemens are nowhere close).

This is actually not the right link. This is a BBTF user poll, esentially. It is very confusing; I made the same mistake yesterday.

These are the actual "exit polls."
