2017 HoF Ballot.

I can't see moire than two guys making it to 75%: Bagwell and Hoffman.  And Hoffman will have a battle of being a reliever (albeit a superb one).  Tim Raines is on his last year of eligibility.  If he hasn't done it by now....  There will always be a few veterans' committee picks, but this looks like a pretty bleak year.

McGwire and Trammell both fell off the ballot.  And Sosa is hovering barely about 5%.  Roidheards beware.

Clemens, Bonds, Bagwell and Shoeless Joe Jackson all deserve in
