The Tuesday Discussion: Our Hall-of-Fame Ballots
December 28, 2021
This week we asked our writers to let us know who they would vote for if they had Hall-of-Fame voting privileges.
Here are their responses. (ALSO – watch for follow-up posts over the coming week where some of our writers explain their choices in more detail.
Lincoln Mitchell – Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Scott Rolen, Andruw Jones, Manny Ramirez, Andy Pettitte, Tim Lincecum.
(A follow-up post from Lincoln comes tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.)
Cary Greene – David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Omar Vizquel, Scott Rolen, Torii Hunter
(A follow-up post from Cary Greene will come on Thursday at 1:00 p.m.)
Tamar Chalker – Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens. I believe all three would have been HoF caliber still if they had never juiced.
Ed Botti – Curt Schilling, Jeff Kent, and Billy Wagner
(A follow-up post from Ed Botti comes on Friday at 1:00 p.m.)
Paul Semendinger – Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Scott Rolen, Curt Schilling
(Gary Sheffield (118th all-time in WAR among position players), Bobby Abreu (123rd), Sammy Sosa (131st), and David Ortiz (154th) are all on the bubble. My Hall of Fame article will come soon. I am also discussing my ballot of the Start Spreading the News YouTube show.)
Tim Kabel – David Ortiz, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Curt Schilling, Andy Pettitte, Omar Vizquel
Ethan Semendinger – Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, David Ortiz, Andy Pettitte, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Scott Rolen, Curt Schilling, Gary Sheffield, and Sammy Sosa
