One Royals player has a plan to fix the Hall of Fame voting process

This year, voters have tweeted or written stories about the difficulty of choosing just 10 candidates. Among the 17 new players on the ballot are Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.

Among the players who are on the ballot again are Craig Biggio, Tim Raines, Roger Clemens, Jeff Bagwell, Barry Bonds, Mike Piazza and Mark McGwire.

You can see the dilemma some people might have. Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie has a plan to help out the writers. Guthrie tweeted his idea to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal.

Guthrie’s plan is if a player is voted in one year, that vote would carry over for as long as he’s eligible to be on the ballot.

But what if a writer wants to rescind a vote in the future? Guthrie has that covered, too.
