Ballot Confusion Newsbeat
Tuesday, December 31, 2013
I’m most often a full-ballot kind of voter, and this year certainly was no exception, but it wasn’t without difficult decisions. Although I’m not ready to commit to never voting for someone who has been tied to performance-enhancing drugs, for the second straight year I did leave off my ballot the five names most prominently mentioned in that regard—Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Sammy Sosa—and had little trouble doing so, given the qualifications of at least another dozen or so candidates.
Without going into detail overload (we’ll save that for after the results are official), here are the 10 players I voted for, in alphabetical order (hold the drumroll, please): Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Jack Morris, Mike Mussina, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Frank Thomas and Alan Trammell.
The only problem I had with these selections was leaving off others, who, in some cases, I feel are equally worthy.
