Morris didn't do as well as we all feared he would.

Not all of us.

Fair enough.

Still, he only went up 1.2%.

The Hall of Fame 2012, these are the 10 questions or arguments.

1-Barry Larkin became the 62.1%, believe that it is the only elected by 2012.

2-Jack Morris, with the 53.5%, your goal should be reached 65% when come 2013 steroids ballot, can enter Biggio.

3-Lee Smith, 45.3%, good elente exc opportunity to reach 50%, as no major figures on the ballot, only Bernie Williams, you achieve this, and be the bridge for 4 years.

4-Jeff Bagwell, 41.7, I am sure that came and dara a large leap year, 52% of the vote. When Biggio have question time in 2013, reached 60% of the vote.

5-Tim Raines, continues to rise as the foam reached 37.5% their goal will be 45%, reached?

6-Alan Trammell, by what I see happened 15 years on the ballot, unless done a campaign as the Raines.

7-Larry Walker, I see a good start, and it is a surprise for me, I believe the voters began to look at it another way, I think that you winning by less 50 new votes.

8-Mark McGwire had the hunch that it would increase for all their statements but not, and the new voter this year were almost 32 not supported him, however it will take the 2013.

9-Fred McGriff, bulging ballot by many writers left vote for Eastern year, but win a substantial amount of votes by 2012.

10-To be elected Blyleven and Alomar, to remain outside Baines and franco 5% and Parker finish periclo 15 years, and the percentage that exists that for every 100 ballots of the writers there are 15 who vote by 10 spaces available, I think that there will be an argument of votes in each of the previously mentioned 9 included McGwire.

As new known the BBWWA writers who vote for the next year have to mention a few: Marcus Breton (Sacramento Bee); Tim Kawakami (San Jose Mercury News); Doug Padilla (ESPN-Chicago Sox); Rob Biertempfel (Tribune Review); Troy Renck (Denver Post), and Steve Simmons (Toronto Sun).

Pete and Repoz, if I escaped any ballot mising??
