If I continue to vote – it’s not certain that I will –
This is the sixth time Miller’s name has appeared on a Hall of Fame ballot, meaning he is 0-for-5 in votes by assorted committees in various formats. It was after his third snub in 2007 that he told me of his desire to be omitted from future ballots, asked me what I thought of the idea and also asked me the appropriate way of going about communicating that desire.
This was another group:
Craig Biggio** 68.2%
Jeff Bagwell*** 59.6%
Mike Piazza**** 57.8%
These players are suspected of having used PEDs but have never been proved to have used. Some voters say because they don’t know for sure who did use and who didn’t so they will declare this the steroids era and vote as if everyone was equal.
I don’t agree with that view. But then I don’t agree with those who vote for no one because they aren’t certain who did and didn’t use.
My position at the moment is I gather the best information I can on a player, use my best judgment and vote. I have not voted for any of the players on the accompanying lists and don’t expect to this year. If I continue to vote – it’s not certain that I will – and additional revealing information on players emerges, I will vote accordingly.

Some voters have been known to list just 1 per position max.

There's really no objective way to find Morris as a superior pitcher when compared to Mussina. Murray Chass is a hack.
7. Sparky Anderson said nice things about Morris in public.
