The names up for Hall of Fame consideration this year are as follows:
Roberto Alomar, Harold Baines, Bert Blyleven, Andre Dawson, Andres Galarraga, Barry Larkin, Edgar Martinez, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff, Mark McGwire, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Tim Raines, Lee Smith, Alan Trammell, Eric Karros, David Segui, Todd Zeile, Robin Ventura, Pat Hentgen, Mike Jackson, Kevin Appier, Shane Reynolds, Ellis Burks and Ray Lankford.
Getting my vote would be holdovers Andre Dawson and Bert Blyleven and first-timer Roberto Alomar.
I predict that Karros, Segui, Zeile, Hentgen, Jackson, Appier, Reynolds, Burks and Lankford won’t get enough votes to be retained on the 2011 Hall of Fame list.
Although I hope Dawson and Blyleven finally make their place in the Hall, this could be a year when no former player gets inducted.
Leave a comment and state who would get your vote.
