Rev-up, drink up and pucker up…as Hickey gives David Wells his first HOF vote!
Who’s on my ballot this year?
There’s Biggio, who was one of baseball’s finest leadoff hitters for 20 years with the Houston Astros, and Piazza, who hit more home runs that any other catcher in history and had a .308 batting average.
Pitchers David Wells and Curt Schilling have borderline credentials bolstered by post-season success, and Jack Morris, Lee Smith Alan Trammell and former Expo Tim Raines are all guys who have had my support in the past, and the clock is ticking on some of them.
Barry Larkin was the only player elected last year and he was on the ballot for the third time. Smith is on the ballot for the 11th time and Trammel is on for the 12th time.
