Calcaterra: Jonah Keri, Dave Brown and David Schoenfield admitted to the BBWAA

The Baseball Writers Association of America held its annual meeting this morning and admitted three new members to its ranks. They are: Grantland/ESPN’s Jonah Keri, Yahoo!’s Dave Brown and ESPN’s David Schoenfield.

All three are deserving, hard-working baseball writers. All three are also top representatives of online baseball media. It’s very good, both for them and, especially, for the BBWAA, that they are now part of its ranks. It will help the organization move forward and, over time, will hopefully help the results of awards voting and Hall of Fame voting better reflect newer metrics and advanced analysis.

Thanks to Zevo.

I'm not familiar with Brown but I like Schoenfield and Keri a lot. Good for them.

Only ten more years until Jonah sells his Hall of Fame vote to BTF.

Tim Raines's HoF candidacy gets another small boost.

Is Steve Rogers still on the ballot?

Is Steve Rogers still on the ballot?

Isn't it difficult to figure out his service time when he spent a few decades frozen in ice?
