The Reverse Insanity Hall-of-Fame Ballot
I count a bakers dozen retired MLB stars who would get my 2014 Hall-of-Fame vote…including only the returning players. This excludes newbie shoe-in’s Frank Thomas, Greg Maddux, Mike Mussina and Tom Glavine. Can I vote for seventeen guys?
Since the maximum players you can choose is ten, the voter is required to strategize their selections. In that case I have to leave off newcomers Thomas, Maddux & Glavine since they will surely be voted in and vote for the least deserving of my seventeen to make sure they don’t fall off the ballot.
Therefore my 2014 ballot includes (in order of least deserving to most):
- Fred McGriff
- Jeff Kent
- Alan Trammell
- Edgar Martinez
- Larry Walker
- Mark McGwire
- Craig Biggio
- Mike Piazza
- Curt Schilling
- Tim Raines
Thanks stupid rules and stubborn baseball writers 🙂
