  1. Do you have an assessment of how much Bonds and Clemens may have to “over-perform” (more than 75%) by in the public ballots to make up for the non-public ballots?

    • Short answer, Bonds and Clemens will roughly need about 78% of public ballots. Last year there were 397 ballots cast, 328 were public. Bonds received 241 votes, 214 of which were public. Bonds was 57 short of the 298 needed. Of the 156 not voting for Bonds 114 were public. If we assume 57 more votes come proportionally public ballots would be 214 plus 73% of 57 for 256 public votes which would be 78% of public ballots. Non public votes would be 27 (241-214) plus 27% of 57 for 42 total votes on 69 non public ballots for 61%. This would represent an increase of 13% on public ballots and 22% on non public ballots. It doesn’t look likely. Next year Schilling probably won’t be on the ballot, but Ortiz will be on the ballot. Numbers for Clemens would be similar as they are usually 1 or 2 votes apart. This is just back of the napkin calculations.

      • Thanks for the explanation. Those are not unrealistic numbers but neither Bonds nor Clemens are on that track so far.

          • Anybody who thinks Bonds and Clemens don’t deserve to be in the Hall are not truly baseball fans. Bonds is literally the best player ever, there is so much evidence for his case that you have to be willingly ignorant to still believe he doesn’t deserve to be in the Hall. You need to grow up.

  2. It’s known fact. You have to get more in public votes, per average, to make up for non public

    • Correct, that’s why I asked the question about assessing how many more public votes may be needed. With the number of years of data in the tracker they may be able to provide some insight into this.

  3. buenas noches sera que omar vizquel y bobby abreu y omar vizquel pasara de 75 por ciento y abreu subirá hasta el 40 por ciento en esta votación delos cronistas

    • Los moderadores de la página no pueden saber eso, Cualquier proyección es una suposición, ni siquiera los métodos estadísticos son exactos. Por ejemplo Vizquel ha tenido 37%; 42.8% & 52.6% en los tres años previos, para llegar a 75% necesita un salto de mas de 20% en sus totales de votos, hasta ahora lo más que ha avanzado es 9.8% (global) del 2019 al 2020. Si sigue la tendencia, estaría entre 63% y 68% al final de la votación, y eso lo dejaría en una buena posición para la próxima votación. por su parte Abreu el año pasado sólo sacó 5.5% pensar que subirá hasta 40% es un poco aventurado, Cómo le digo, son solo suposiciones. Hay que esperar a ver como se van desarrollando los votos.

      • luis lo que pasa es que están tan lentos los votos delos cronistas esta casi uno por dia y por lo que se tardara mucho y ya casi las p.m

  4. Maddox, glavin both got assisted with umpires calling strikes on outside pitches, bonds, Clemens are both deserving with an asterisk its time

    • Yeah, well it looks like the voters are intent on changing the Hall of Fame to the Hall of Lame omitting Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, Schilling, etc. from entry.

  5. luis lo que pasa es que están tan lentos los votos delos cronistas esta casi uno por dia y por lo que se tardara mucho y ya casi las 6 p.m

    • Estimado Oswaldo, no todos los cronistas revelan su boleta, La Asociación de Escritores de Baseball de Estados Unidos (BBWAA, por sus siglas en inglés) deberá emitir sus votos antes del fin de año. De este modo, los nuevos integrantes del Olimpo del baseball serán anunciados a través de la cadena oficial de la Gran Carpa, MLB Network, el jueves 26 de enero.

  6. que beuno que por ahora tod se ve parejo ya que la diferencia esta por votos entre los que mas tienen pienso que todavía vizquel tiene chance , los demas si les toca esperar veo que de los que entraron varios no van a llegar
    pero bueno como dices luis los cronistas son los que votan solo ellos saben quien o quiens merecen entar este 2021

    • Muchos cronistas, sobre todos los de más edad, son bien “celosos” con quien entra al HOF, imagínate que de varios miles de peloteros que han jugado en la Gran Carpa, solo hay 235 jugadores en el Salón de la Fama, actualmente, con fechas de nacimiento que van desde 1847 (Deacon White) hasta 1977 (Halladay). De esos 235, solo 55 nacieron desde el final de la Segunda Guerra Mundial en 1945. “Sólo 55”, los votantes argumentan y con sobradas razones, que el HOF es sólo para los realmente fuera de serie. Ahora se han ido incorporando los que basan sus decisiones en la sabermetría, porque en números puros y duros, los records de antaño son simplemente inalcanzables. Te voy a citar este ejemplo escrito por Mike Petriello Analista de MLB.com : “Ya nadie sabe qué hacer con los lanzadores abridores. Gracias a la forma en que el juego ha cambiado, las estadísticas compiladas por los mejores titulares de hoy nunca coincidirán con sus ancestros históricos. Para elegir solo un ejemplo: Clayton Kershaw, quien debería ser un miembro indudable cuando sea elegible, tiene 25 juegos completos y 15 blanqueadas a lo largo de su carrera. Bob Gibson, admitido en 1981, tuvo 28 juegos completos y 13 blanqueadas ……………. solo en 1968” Saludos…

  7. Bonds, Clemens, Ramirez, Sheffield, Sosa, Schilling, Jones, Kent, Helton should be IN, in that order. Vizquel, Rolen, Wagner, Pettitte, Abreu, Buehrle, Hunter, Hudson deserve a closer look. On the field performance counts for all with me. All numbers are counted until you retire or are suspended. Who’s a proven cheater, who’s a suspected cheater? HOF most likely has suspects and cheaters already. The juice, cream or clear Bonds is the best hitter I’ve ever seen.

    • i aggree with yo in some parts of you dayalog , but , what i think is that ithis year the persons that have to be in the hallof fame ikown if you aggree willbe vizquel, posible schilling , bonds and clemens , hte rest i thing the will increase the porcentage to be try to enter in hofb next year

    • i aggree with you in some parts of you dayalog , but , what i think is that this year the persons ,that have to be in the hall of fame, i kown if you aggree will be vizquel, posible schilling , bonds and clemens , the rest i thing the will increase the porcentage to be try to enter in hall of fame baseball next year
      another observation today was not reply a new vote of ballots

  8. i hope, that today, can reveled more vote ballots, and vizquel an abreu can increase the porcentaje , the vote are really close ,this year with the porcentage reveled

  9. Oswaldo,
    This site can only compile the ballots that they have access to. They will come in more quickly in a few weeks.

  10. good new vizquel and abreu is increasing in the votes ballots thank for the report
    ryan

  11. ARE CLOSE THE VOTES THE DIFRENCES IS 7 IS BEETWEEN VIZQUEL AN THE NUMBER ONE IN THE LIST
    THANKS RYAN

  12. Hi ryan ,thanks for the reports of the cronist of the hall of fame 2021 is possible that tomorrow can recieve 3 more ballots what you thinks vizquel. Have change to enter this year what you thinking

  13. dear ryan thanks for the report what i thinkig vizquel this year arrive les than 50% and barry bonds ,clements and shilling will be in this year to the hall fame 2021 according what i see rigth now
    , i hope that the person voting can look vizquel golden gloves

    • Hi Oswaldo, I can deduce from your interest in Vizquel, that you are Venezuelan like me, but the golden glove is not directly awarded by MLB. I also want Omar go to Cooperstown, if any Venezuelan journalist says that Omar will be elected this year, he is simply speaking from his nationality, and not from his reason.

      • yes luis iam vnenzuela , the problem is coming because i dont understand that the new that iam recieving , that i dont undersatand that with some reason , hte person that is votting are not clear , and why the dont say idont vote anymore , to vizqeul , with the noitce of the domestic problem , why the dont took out before , and they are not voting more the cause of other palyer are more than this and they re receving vote is not becuase vizquel is venezuelan , i hope that hte vote cna change for only the time he play

        • Te entiendo Oswaldo, pero los peloteros deben estar libres de cualquier escandalo fuera de los terrenos de juego, esa es una las razones por las cuales Curt Schilling tampoco ha llegado al Salón de la Fama. por acusaciones de fraude ni Pete Rose por su inclinación a las apuestas. Esto es poco, comparado con las acusaciones que pesan sobre Vizquel por abuso contra su pareja. El tema es viejo, sólo que salió a luz pública ahorita, si no lo sabías en 2016 Vizquel fue arrestado por violencia doméstica, igual en 2019 fue despedido por los White Sox (era manager del equipo AA) por un incidente con un empleado. En fin, no es algo de reciente data, sólo que recién ha salido a la palestra por que MLB lo está investigando. Es lamentable, pero, es lo que se ha revelado recientemente, habrá que esperar el resultado de dichas investigaciones. Saludos

  14. derar ryan i hear that vizquel probably will be out of the voted ballots this is tur , the mlb are investigation him for some problem domestic
    why this year and not 3 years ago

  15. Dear Ryan, Iis hard that some divorces of vizquel with his wife , is cousing some reduction in the porcentage of the person can are voting in the hall of fame this year, was more fear that he cannot be entert in the bollet ,

  16. Vizquel isn’t getting in. I’m not sure he’s even picked up a single vote since the abuse allegations broke. A telling sign will be if he ends up with less votes this year then he got last year.

    • tom answering to you i am following all te coments of abuse allegations broke, in this case remember that this problem can comes toall families aronund the world , the hall fo fame of mlb is intruding in the list is player for the merit of the player not for the families problems , the problem was becomes becuase his wife was not opne the door room for some reason , but the prblem was solved and they divorces 4 years ago when vizqeul start in the ballots of the hall of fame this is for calrify your comments i hopte this will be answer you question and one person vote for him and boboy abreu and incurease from 22 to 23 to vizquel and form abreu to 7 to 8
      regards
      oswaldo zambrano

  17. I understand what your saying Oswaldo but unfortunately here in the USA we now live in what is called a politically correct world and the writers will hold your off the field activities against you. As a fan of the game I considered Vizquel a borderline candidate based on his on field accomplishments. I’m afraid these allegations won’t help those borderline chances.

    • VICTOR WHAT I SEE THAT THIS YEAR WILL BE ENTER BONDS , CLEMENS AND SHILLING
      THE REST HAVE TO WAIT NEXT YEAR

  18. Unfortunately neither Bonds nor Clemens are getting in this year. They haven’t flipped any writers in this initial 50 vote sample. Shilling has a shot, but may very well fall short again as well.

  19. Dear Ron, I think the same as you. I also think that Wagner will be close to 50%,
    and nobody will be elected this year.

  20. Curt Schilling will get into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The question is if the writers will do it this year or next or if he has to wait until the Today’s Game Era Committee meets to put him in on his first ballot. His continued existence on the ballot hurts those on the ballot with him (like Jeff Kent, Billy Wagner, Scott Rolen, or Todd Helton) or if he isn’t elected by the writers, those (like Jimmy Key, Mark Langston, John Franco, Bret Saberhagen, Peter O’Malley, Felipe Alou, or Rich Garcia) who might have been on the Era Committee ballot instead of him, much more than it hurts him.

    Likewise, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa and the other players tainted by steroids will eventually all get in. The question is whether the writers will put them in or will they get in posthumously? or at least until thinking changes sufficiently among the veterans, baseball executives and baseball reporters on the various veterans committees to give them a chance at election?

    • As of today, 1/17/21, Schilling will never get in. Normally, a player with about 70 percent support after eight years will get in within the next two ballots. I never thought of him as a “lock” because he was never considered HOF quality
      until he joined Arizona late in his career, but he was getting increased support in recent balloting. However, his over the top rants on twitter stopped his momentum and he is considered emotionally like Bonds and Clemons. He is not getting additional support on the Tracker from returning voters. And now, with his open twitter support for the insurrectionists who overran the Capital on 1/6/21, his fate is sealed for next year and subsequent years where is might be considered by a special committee. Voters are human. They will vote for conservatives, but not advocates of sedition.

  21. matt ,anwering your question about the ballots is many votes pending and schilling is close for the porcentage, but is heard to undertand the committee, in some vote is moving up and some times is reducing the procentage , what i mention we have to wait to the 300 votes to see who can enter this time is closer in 7 or 8 players , last year this was didi in the last vote schilling was not in for 1.5 porcentage last year

  22. ryan according what i see curt schilling wll be in this year es to close i s 0.6 porcentaje

  23. Schilling is unlikely to get in. He was 20 votes shy last year and is -1 among returning voters. He should be +3 or 4 at this point. That’s a big difference.

  24. thanks freind ryan i hope that vizqeul and abreu can imorved in the inincreasion porcentaje
    have good night

    • Hola Oswaldo, un consejo, utiliza al menos el traductor de Google para escribir en Inglés.

  25. Hope Clemens and Bonds make it — PED’s or not, both were obviously two of the best players at their positions ever. As great a defensive player as he was, I am somewhat surprised at the support AJones is getting, given the way his career fell off a cliff.

  26. Thanks you Ryan for your information is almost close the day of year the page annoument is fine i hope the quantity of voted ballots can increase more fast than yesterday and my favorites to enter omar vizquel can increase more than 52 %this two days a can be even than last years
    Thanks you have nice day

  27. Que luis maury que este subiendo vizquel ojala llegue al 60 porciento
    Saludos y que pases un feliz año 2020

    • Gracias Oswaldo, sin embargo creo que lo que dice Tom es cierto, Vizquel no creo que llegue a 60%, por el contrario, estoy convencido que este año tendrá menos votos que el año pasado. El gran ganador incluso si no es electo ha sido Scott Rolen.

  28. I’m afraid the character claus in the voting rules will keep Vizquel out. Sorry Oswaldo.

  29. Si entiendo lo que dice Tom no es facil luis entrar mira lo.que le paso a David concepcion nunca entro y tiene mejores estadisticas que vizquel lo que si le alegra es por abreu quien subió mas de 12 %
    Que tengan un feliz año 2020 el dia 31 de diciembre

  30. Hi tom, vizquel ,was a good player 11 golden gloves ,in mlb ,he was divorces ro his first wife ,his first wife is defending him, in this case is involving his second wife ,apparently and if you have you mother wife live in the same house is cause problem with desaggreement that is this case is call in spanglish chismes de novela o de mujeres this is not came be evaluated in mlb the problem of family have to be solve only with the housband and wife
    Regards
    Oswaldo zambrano

  31. Good afternoon person who are in the comments in the page of following votes i hard to understand this votes person cronist , apperently ,what i looking many of the cronist are trying to protected, the person like clement bonds, helton ,rolen and schilling ,they was good player too ,but is hard to try to changes votes protecting this 5 person more than the orders ,is look that this time the five persons will be inscrease more ,please think more in other player not only in this five persons i know that the people voting are the cronist but thinking this

  32. I think MLB is done with Vizquel. He was a Manager on the rise but after he got fired for the clubhouse incident in Birmingham the only job he could find was in the Mexican League. I predict he finishes under 40% this year on the vote.

    • Hi Tom, I agree with you. I told Oswaldo a few days ago that Vizquel would not be elected this year.

  33. I think is better with this mlb can took out vizquel of the ballots votes next year and every body not be affraid, with this i am complete in desagree if the cronist give a porcentage bellots 52 that he obtain on 2020 votes because a simple comments tom grow ,sorry is this is only option that have the cronist ,i like the mlb ,for year

  34. Its fun to speculate if Bonds, Clemens and Schilling will make it this time. Sad to see Sosa isn’t in the running even though he has huge batting credentials such as 290 HRs over 5 year span; a NL MVP award and the guy was just fun as hell to watch. What was that 2 finger sign he did after each HR? A kiss to his mother? Awesome. The supplement scandal was a hoax…a real hoax and the corked bat was a nothing burger too. Corked bats make the ball travel shorter distances not farther. Anyway, sad to see him shut out of Hall of Fame over such nonsense. If they weren’t kicked out of baseball the Hall should only focus on baseball performances.

  35. Hi don i aggree with all that you mention , the only thing what i mention is that i dont understand the cronist ,why they are doing this to vizquel with some comments scandal that is not good for baseball to reduce porcentage to him only for this comments i know that is one cronist from my country Venezuela that are promoving this is hard than 2021 can be coming this i was following him for many years that are the name juan vene sorry you can heard this
    Regards
    Oswaldo zambrano

  36. If a corked bat generated less distance and/or advantage at the plate, why did Sosa use it? Was he just dumb.

    As far as his candidacy, he is behind Bonds, Clemens, Palmeiro, Manny, Mac and probably Sheffield, not to mention Alex Rodriguez.

    I’m not saying he shouldn’t be in and at some point, l believe all those guys will be admitted (with some recognition that it was widespread in the sport) but at this point, he definitely doesn’t deserve to go in

    • The corked bat story is long a technical as far as the distance issue. Sosa said he used the bat only for practice as it made a louder sound. It also makes the bat lighter which according to the experts in an article I read allows the batter to swing faster and thus give them a fraction of a second more time to register the pitch and adjust. Of course batters can choose a lighter bat if they want as far as I know but it has to be a solid bat. Sosa claimed he mistakenly took the wrong bat (his practice only bat) to the plate and we know what happened…it broke. Maybe that’s true or maybe not, he has never said otherwise. Anyway he was ejected from the game and suspended 8 games.
      I’m not saying he was better than Mac or AROD (who isn’t eligible yet). He did end up with more total HRs than Mac did though. He is 9th all time and the 3 out of 4 years with over 60 HRs is unmatched all time.
      I respectfully can not disagree with you more on Sosa and Mac should have already been in. Arod definitely belongs in and if you don’t have Bonds and Clemens in the Hall of Fame then the institution is a joke.

    • I reallhy think the corked bat thing is a non issue here. The voters care less about that than the Spitball and Gaylord Perry is already in.Sosa is out because he was caught using steroids.

  37. Eric: Exactly. That’s why Sosa used a corked bat.

    Don: All I’m saying is that Sosa was (imo) a lesser player than all the guys l mentioned. Arod is eligible next year and clearly will struggle. (It isn’t just me though, Sosa has a 58.6 WAR). I would put him in, but that WAR isn’t spectacular. I agree on Bonds & Clemens (l own game worn jerseys of both).

    Happy New Year

    • I don’t know how you can leave him out. WAR isn’t everything that a player contributes. The HR numbers are a major factor and 9th all time doesn’t make HOF??? As far as the comments about he corked bat, Sosa’s story [that he picked up the wrong bat used for highlight reel before the game] adds up. An average MLB player goes through a bat on average every 10 plate appearances. The MLB tested 74 of his bats and found nothing. The one that broke was the only one. Also, a corked bat is much louder than a solid bat and that is the whole point. It is also more likely to break. A player would be foolish to think he could get away with using one regularly.

  38. Where did l say l would leave him out? Damn dude. I said he has to wait his turn behind better ballplayers. He’s way way way behind Palmeiro, should he get in first?
    You’re right WAR isn’t everything but it’s the best cumulative metric to compare guys from the same era/position. Clearly better than any single person’s subjective opinion.

    I collect game used bats and there are nowhere near 60 game used bats kicking around the hobby from every player/season AND (with no disrespect) it’s ludicrous to think that professional hitters that have bats made to spec can’t tell the difference in the swing weight of a bat. I guarantee you that someone like Tony Gwynn notices a few grand/mm handle width differential.

    These guys aren’t ransoms playing softball at the park and using whatever bat happens to just be available.

  39. Ron, I didn’t mean YOU specifically, I was speaking in terms of anyone who wants to leave Sosa out. Palmiero isn’t on the ballot as I am sure you are aware. As far as noticing the difference in weight of the bat, we don’t know what the weight was. A corked bat can be exactly the same weight as his regular bat depending on the density of the wood or how big the bat is. MLB is the organization that stated that 74 Sosa bats were tested after the corked bat incident. We are getting into a lot of speculation on all of this but in any event he wasn’t kicked out of baseball and was allowed to continue his career. That was the decision of the MLB. Lots of bad guys and cheaters are already in the Hall. What we are seeing here is a popularity contest not a professional skills assessment imo.

  40. Hits leader not in, HR leader not in, one of the best pitcher’s not in. Its embarrassing as a baseball fan that I had to just state the above. As when I visited the HOF 4 years ago that was the opinion of the vast amount of people I spoke to. I watched baseball intently during the so called PED period. Do people honestly think during that time 30 to 50 percent of the players weren’t taking some sort of PED Just look at the size of the players in that era. Do you think bonds wasn’t hitting against many pitcher’s and fielder’s. Do you think clemens wasn’t pitcher against many batters during that period. So now we single out a few players from that era and punish them. Or is it simply discrimination against a few because they were not the most liked back then. But no they were guilty of using PED, fine show me they never played against other players not using something or other and then I’ll listen. Not to mention apparently breaking the law or doing something wrong means nothing. Burn down cities nothing, pardon crooks nothing, election fraud nothing. I could go on and on. Put the men in and stop embarrassing me as a fan before I am not one.

  41. Freind i hard to understand that some cronist are saying ,that vizquel was a poor player shortsop ,look the 11 golden gloves, my opinion is that the cronist have to evaluated not for internal problem domestic or comments, the cronist have to evaluated the person what they do in the baseball game did not outside,outside the game they are normal persons like every body and is good to tell every words in from the person is more easily ,not like they are doing

  42. There’s a character claus in the voting rules. That’s what’s keeping the cheaters,beaters and Curt Schilling out. Nothing more,nothing less. Take a minute to read the rules one day and maybe you will have a better understanding.

    • Well if you want to use the character clause then about a 1/3 of the hof should be kicked out

  43. I understand what you saying tom , but after years ,playing and retaier baseball player the sport have to be saying that some person are poor or not remember that the sport is reacties and job for some persons but not you life after retair all the rules merit is not have to become to introduces person in a hall of fame of some sport ,if this will be comes like this many sport player will says i dont i play ,but they will dont care if will be onside of a hall of fame with a name player plate or not ,remember that player can say i like or not sorry to says this but that is the live ,not body can say you are in and your out ,the cronist have to think this or many players will say i dont interesting
    Sorry ryan but i thinking this can be more clear ,remember hall of fame is optional,look others sports

  44. There are plenty of guys in the Hall with checkered pasts, Tom. Robbie Alomar spit on an ump and used cocaine, Tim Raines admitted to playing with Coke in his pocket. I’m sure there have been a multitude of drunk drivings, fights, arrests and other malfeasance.

  45. I’m aware of the claus. Simply put had baseball ban the alleged PED users lifetime and then they were not eligible for the HOF. Then these sanctimonious voters would have a agreement. The HOF is by no means a place of saints and clergymen. Call them cheaters, beaters or whatever. But one can’t get around the fact atleast bonds and clemens maybe in the top 10 or 15 to ever play the game. I don’t condone what they allegedly did but that is certainly no reason to hold them out.

  46. Dear Ryan ,luis maury , is really hard to understand that this 2021 ,ballots votes ,can Many cronist ,for the votes ,can used the extra sports situation in the evaluation ,in hope if the mlb ,can do more clear when they mention the possible electives player next year or in the future dont uses the extra sports or family situacion or problems wife and husband,if the cronist rules become like this possible in the future many player will say i play in the mlb,but i dont want to be elected on the hall of fame ,think this is a recomendation ,many player dont want to be annoument in the list

  47. Oswaldo, Vizquel was a regular player, not a superstar. He never won any offensive title. He was great at defense, but defense is not all, is a part. In the previous three years, no one talked about their problems outside of baseball and it still did not reach 75%.

  48. Happy to see one of my favorites, Scott Rolen, getting some love. Third base is very underrepresented IMO. Beltran in a few years will join the HOF… always thought Ken Boyer deserved a nod.

    • Beltran will take many more years to be elected to the Hall of Fame, if ever. He was involved in the Houston sign stealing mess, and for that reason he lost an opportunity to manage the Mets. Even though I am a Royals fan and I remember him from his early years there, I always thought of him as a borderline candidate anyway, sorta like Rolen. Among center field candidates, I prefer Bernie Williams even though he was not the defender or base runner that Beltran was.

  49. Scott: yeah catcher and the hot corner lag behind other positions.

    How likely is this: the guys Close get to 75% and the guys hovering at 5% fall under?

  50. Eric

    I’ll go with unlikely and likely. At this point, l don’t see any of the big 3 getting in. Down around 5%, one vote makes a big difference, so obviously it could go either way, but there doesn’t seem to be any movement to keep guys on the ballot. Lots and lots of really good players have slid right off the ballot. Kenny Lofton comes to mind.

  51. Yes this is the case mant good player never enter to the hof mlb , ron you remember kenny lofton i remember dave concepcion was a good shortstop player , was in a ballots votes for more 10 years ,than goes one election in veterans commities and never enter and was one of maquines reds many of them enter in the hof ,of that time only pete rose didnt for the comments we know ,in payment games
    That i why i comments luis maury and Ryan but we cannot enter in the mind of the commities of cronist ,that the same when elected player to the allstar game
    I hope you agree with me ,is time that the commities of cronist can understand i hope in the future the can thinking better not they are doing in this election 2021 , you can see in the top 6 american player the latinoamerican player ,the case is to do not parcial only entering american player

  52. It is good to see that Bonds, Clemens, and Schilling are near 75 %. Unfortunately, Vizquel is falling down. This reveals once more that BBWAA electors are too much influenced by “moral” considerations, instead of just “sports” criteria

  53. I wouldn’t be surprised to see only Scott Rolen make it in this time. From what I have heard in the past Clemens, Bonds and Schilling numbers have tended to decline as more and more of the ballots are cast. I could see a push by conservative voting members to include Rolen since he is within spitting distance. Maybe Schilling gets a bump too just because there isn’t anyone else deserving and he isn’t tied to the juicing issues.

  54. It’s the “Hall of who hasn’t alienated the BBWAA” not the Hall of Fame. I’ll consider calling it the HOF when Pete Rose is allowed in.

  55. The only opinon that i like ia the vote of rosental that he did what i think and like the player merit that have vizquel to be inside i hope in the rest 6 time that he have to be in of the museum of hall of fame ,doing by the play game and dont try to do what they many cronist did this time ,also bobby Abreu can enter too will be good for many country venezuela and can motivited other Venezuela player

  56. The only opinon that i like ia the vote of rosental that he did what i think and like the player merit that have vizquel to be inside i hope in the rest 6 time that he have to be in of the museum of hall of fame ,doing by the play game and dont try to do what they many cronist did this time ,also bobby Abreu can enter too will be good for many country venezuela and can motivited other Venezuela player

  57. Rolen isn’t *within spitting distance” but he is well positioned for the future; Schilling has lost votes on recurring ballots from last year. His percentage is up due to the timing of the ballots received. Neither gets in this year. Next year will be crazy.

    • Eric will be more votes that Ryan thibodalux recieve open of the cronist of hall of fame 2021

  58. Okey i hope that can become for more good new for the player below in porcentaje bellow 40 ,have good night

  59. So far 3 voters have rescinded their votes form last year for Schilling. So last year he was a HOFer but not this year? Did they change their votes because of his politics? Of course they did, but political views should not be a factor in this election.

  60. That are the same many cronist did with vizquel ,about 9 more less only for comments

  61. Thanks Ryan good new vizquel and Abreu will be safe and can have another opportunities i hope they can increase more the porcentaje and vizquel can increase more and pass the 52 porcentaje he had last year ,thanks you Ryan the cronist reflex with the comments of rosenthal of the atletic magazine

  62. Listening to folks on MLB network talk about reforms they’d like to see. The most common seems to be a threshold over 3 years to stsy on the ballot. I have an easier one: lift the vote cap to 12+.

  63. Hi play with magallanes in Venezuela i see him in tv and also you play many years in Venezuela baseball league ,but not to much games ,you fathe play with dave Parker ,and michel page ,in the 1970 ,i see you when you was really young in one game in caracas venezuela the stadium called universitario

  64. He play with magallanes in Venezuela i see him in tv and also you play many years in Venezuela baseball league ,but not to much games ,you father play with dave Parker ,and michel page ,in the 1970 ,i see you when you was really young in one game in caracas venezuela the stadium called universitario

  65. I use to look forward to seeing someone has added to the thread until it got infested with one annoying soul. Please stop posting.

    Ryan can not tell you when they will add votes. They will as voters share. Instead of writing in here go to last year’s spreadsheet and email the voters. They have literally compiled them in one place for a reason.

    Also Omar is not a shoe in for HOF. Borderline. If he gets in will be year 9 or 10. Abreu is not a HOF. Not through BBWAA at least.

    One last thing- learn proper meaning of cronist B4 using it. Does not fit here..

    PLEASE STOP WRITING 5 times a day so we can tell when real chat starts..

  66. sorry, is you dont want ,that person can to be interesting, that konw ,how is the voting improving runing

  67. Bonds was a Hall of Famer before he ever juiced. He won MVPs in 3 of 4 years between 1990 & 1993. He actually got robbed one of the years and MVP went to Terry Pendleton.
    The point being….3 MVPs is the Max by any Hall of Famer in Cooperstown. We are talking the likes of Berra, Mantle, DiMaggio, Musial, Campanella & Foxx. So Bonds did what those Hall of Famers did in a 4 year span of his career…totally clean.
    Then years later the whole league is juiced ( Thanks Canseco )….pitchers and offensive players and Bonds joins in with the majority of MLB and goes on to win 4 more MVPs, 2 batting titles, hits 73 HRs ( on very few strikes ) and is the home run king surpassing Aaron.

    Oh yeah….he’s also the only guy in the 500 / 500 club.
    He’s literally one of the 3 or 4 greatest players to ever play baseball.

    Put him in. Dudes have already been inducted that totally juiced ( Pudge / Piazza / Bagwell ).
    It’s just that the media hated Bonds and he never bothered to kiss their tear ends ….

  68. Buenos dias luis maury tu que vives en usa y estas mas cerca que le responderias a adam ,se que estan tratando que las personas que consumieron asteroides anabolizantes no entren al salon de la fama o dilatando si puedes aclarale a adam vi un artículo hoy donde dice que los cronistas apartir de voto 122 estan tratando que barry bonds no llegue al 75 %,eso es verdad o falso saludos Oswaldo zambrano

    • Hola Oswaldo, Yo no vivo en USA, vivo en Perú. Lo que dice Adam, es que los números de Bonds lo convierten en un HOF, y que el tema de los Esteroides no debería ser impedimento, ya que Piazza/ Pudge Rodriguez y Bagwell, han sido electos y tuvieron problemas con los mismos esteroides. En cuanto al articulo que has leído, desconozco el mismo, y quien lo escribió, sólo puedo decirte, que las boletas con los votos han sido remitidas a la La Asociación de Escritores de Baseball de Estados Unidos (BBWAA, por sus siglas en inglés), en los plazos establecidos, revelarlas o no, es potestad de cada Cronista, pero no indica de ninguna manera un orden especifico de numeración, dicho de otra manera, quien revele su voto hoy, no quiere decir que es el voto 134 ó 145, ya todos los votos están en poder de la BBWAA, es decir, ya ellos saben si hay electos o no, y quienes siguen o no en las boletas del año próximo,

  69. okey ,si es así porque están llegando tan lentos los votos revelados

    • Porque no es obligatorio revelarlos.El anuncio oficial será el 26 de enero. Simplemente hay que esperar hasta esa fecha. Un poco más de dos semanas.

  70. Hi Ryan today you recieve more votes ballots open from the cronist hall of fame 2021

  71. I not happy some cronist are delating the results i was that at this time to know 50 %of the votes but is late i hope that tomorrow can be open more results,have nice day

    • Oswaldo, nada obliga a los cronistas a revelar sus votos, como te he señalado desde hace días, el 26 de enero se conocerán los resultados.

  72. Que bueno luis vizquel se esta manteniendo en 40 %,ayer se cumplio 35años de que eligieron a luis aparicio al hall de la fama de mlb,esperamos que entren otros jugadores en el futuro de Venezuela yo también estoy fuera de mi pais pero lo recuerdo mucho

  73. El próximo jugador venezolano electo via cronistas va a ser Miguel Cabrera, quien debería terminar con +3000 Hits, +500 Hr +600 Db cerca de 2000 rbi, +1500 anotadas, 300 avg. 2 MVP, una triple corona y 4 títulos de bateo en total.

  74. Este año pasa los 3000 hit,los 500 hr, las 600 db, mas de las 2000 y mas de las 15000 anotadas y promedio de 320 en bateo todas esas marcas las va a pasar en el 2021,otro que va por ese rumbo es altuve y el número 14 de Atlanta que ya lleva 60 hr

    • De Altuve hay que ver como le va este año, luego del escándalo por robo de señas, su promedio cayó considerablemente. Y Ronald Acuña, es un chaval aún, le queda mucho camino por recorrer.

  75. Miggy is certainly a HOFer but he’s also ending his career like Albert Pujols. I would definitely bet against him reaching 2000 RBI and the other milestones are in doubt in 2021. Detroit would love to escape his contract if they could.

    • Of course, my comment is only a projection. But I can confirmn that Miggy is work really hard to reach all these milestones.

  76. How can these sportswriters think that Scott Rolen is a HOF. potential 65% of the vote are you actually serious??? The guy is a lifetime .281 hitter he is not even close to the all-time greats as a third baseman, he had 6 real good years. I am shocked by this.

  77. Vince – Scott Rolen was arguably the best 3rd baseman of his generation. Baseball is more than just hitting it’s also defense. By the defensive metrics and the number of gold gloves (8 of them) Rolen might be the 3rd best defensive 3Ber of all-time. That combined with pretty solid offensive numbers and 7 All-star selections makes him worth consideration. I saw him play in person many times and he passes the ‘eye test’. If not for the old Vet stadium turf and the other turf fields where he played most of his career shredding his knees and back, he might have played longer and had less injury shortened seasons. That would have boosted his counting stats. Still 300-plus homers, nearly 1,300 RBI and a .364 OBP is nothing to sneeze at for guy who was as good defensively as he was. Ozzie Smith got in on the first ballot with much weaker offensive numbers.

  78. I think can be the equal for vizquel and ozzie smith , was two of the best shortstop in the mlb and win many premium to do the best shortstop in the 19 th

  79. Hall of fame was all about baseball accomplishments. Now it has become politics… It depends on how well you patronized many of the baseball writers..It is not about baseball anymore…..Pete Rose and many others belong

  80. Thats was i was thinking too but right now is chance i dont understand why is the Hall of fame was created with merit and right now is involving many subject different

  81. Only 6 days to know… who will go to Cooperstown, who must keep waiting and who says goodbye to the ballots..

  82. luis answering your information the 3 close for enter this year schilling , bonds, and clemens the rest will be wait for next year i hope that the cronist can changes the from of voting for the player not political not personal problem out fo the mlb , and domestic only vote for merrit of the player in the time they play, this comments is foral that was writing this years in the form of vote this year

  83. bueno si tu lo dices que bueno para el
    buneno tocARA ESPERAR HABER EL AÑO QUE VIENE
    HABER SI VIZQUEL SUBE Y NO BAJA EL PROCENTAJE Y ABREU TAMBIEN
    SALUDOS
    LUIS
