    Hoffman is probably still a couple years away.

    Raines, Bagwell and Ivan Rodriguez get in. Nobody else reaches threshold.

    Hoffman and Vlad Guerrero come in around 70%.

    Also, Bonds and Clemens end up just below 70%.

    Roger Clemens is at 54.1% and Barry Bonds at 53.8%. Only three players ever have been over 50% and not eventually been inducted.

    Damn... I guess there are still a lot of old, bitter sportswriters out there who will never vote for them.

    Sucks for Hoffman to have missed the call by 5 votes but he should be elected next year I would think.
    2018 will feature first timers in Chipper Jones, andruw jones:hr:, Kerry Wood, Carlos Zambrano, Scott Rolen, Omar Vizquel, Hideki Matsui and Scott Podsednik. Just put a few of those names in there for obvious Chicago links.

    Chipper Jones is a first ballot HOF. I'd expect Hoffman and Vlad to go in as well. Thome probably waits a year.

    Yep. He is eligible with about 25 other players in the first year of eligibility. Obviously not going into HOF.

    Fuller Trump had no ideas, he just went too far

    I don't see why Thome wouldn't be a 1st ballot HOFer. Only 6 players all time have more HR's and 2 of those are tainted by PEDs.

    Because a major chunk of his career was as DH?

    Raines has deserved it for a long time. The #2 leadoff hitter of all time by a wide margin. He's also credible as just a left fielder.
