Hall of Merit: Mock 2015 Hall of Fame Ballot - Results
BBTF would elect seven this year if given the chance. Based on last year’s referendum results every returning player down to Sosa would already be inducted. We should probably re-do the referendum with Smoltz, Sheffield, Giles, Delgado and everyone who was between 75% and 5% last year.

Hall of Merit: Mock 2015 Hall of Fame Ballot
2015 BBTF Hall of Fame Ballot
IMPORTANT: Please read:
This election should follow BBWAA rules, not Hall of Merit rules. However, we hope to see only players that each voter feels belong on their ballots. Leaving 1st-year candidates off your ballot is also frowned upon. IOW, we would like to see an absence of some of the silliness that permeates Hall of Fame voting by the writers.
The election will end Monday on Jan 5th 2015 (4 PM EST). Results will be posted a short time later.
Please ...Read More...

Hall of Merit: 2015 Election Results - Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez & Curt Schilling elected to the Hall of Merit!
Congratulations to the Class of 2015! Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and Curt Schilling have been elected to the Hall of Merit.
The election was dominated by pitchers. In addition to the top 3, Mike Mussina was a strong 4th, followed closely by John Smoltz. Gary Sheffield and Sammy Sosa were 6th and 7th, both with enough support that their eventual election looks inevitable.
Moving further into the backlog Kenny Lofton, Buddy Bell, Jeff Kent, Luis Tiant, Ben Taylor and Vic Willis round out the ...Read More...
