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

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
