Let's Go Tribe Hall of Fame balloting results

New, 5 comments

The staff here at LGT has made their cases for or against twenty of this year's 34 candidates. How did the voting turn out from the plebians?

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Since mid-December, the profiles of twenty candidates have been voted on by the LGT masses.  In our world, we are not limited by the ten spots that the BBWAA has to adhere to. Below you will find the results of our voting. Drum roll please...

That's ten guys getting in, plus, yesterday we offered up a list of the other candidates, and Craig Biggio (who was left out of this series) was supported by 99% of the ballots cast there (though it was a somewhat weird poll), so really, we're looking at 11 players being voted in here.

Johnson was near unanimous, with only one no vote. Pedro also cruised in with only a few leaving him off their ballot. Edgar Martinez got  huge late push to finish third overall. Somehow I suspect Lookout Landing might have something to do with that. Smoltz, Mussina, Bagwell and Piazza passed fairly easily.

Trammel and Raines, two long time stays on the ballot would barely make it if left up to the LGT readership. Bonds, the biggest PED name, barely made the cutoff, while Clemens, the other well-known PED user was not as highly thought of. McGwire was maybe the most controversial candidate, as he brought in 468 total voters. McGriff got a lot of support and I think Kent and Walker both received more love here than the BBWAA will give them.
