Predicting the next three Hall of Fame votes

Some notable Indians alumni are up for Hall of Fame votes in the next few years. How will they, and the rest of the candidates, fair?

2016 Hall of Fame Results

In a disappointing, but not all to surprising vote, only Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza gained entrance to the Hall of Fame today.

Pre-Integration Era Hall of Fame results revealed

Back on December 7, the results from the pre-integration era committee results were announced. Apparently, nobody noticed.

Hall of Fame profile: other first year candidates

Who else on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot could receive votes?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Billy Wagner

Trevor Hoffman is not the only closer up for debate for the Hall of Fame. Billy Wagner, the flame throwing left hander is also on the ballot.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Trevor Hoffman

Can you hear the theme music to Hells Bells? Here comes the discussion on Trevor Hoffman and his candidacy for the Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Jim Edmonds

Unlike Griffey Jr., the case for Jim Edmonds is not as cut and dried.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Ken Griffey Jr.

Likely the only first time selection from this year’s class, Ken Griffey Jr. had a long standout career.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: 2015 holdovers

Will the 2016 ballot be as fruitful as the amazing class of 2015 of Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio?

Looking ahead to the 2016 HOF ballot

The BBWAA elected four new members to the Baseball Hall of Fame this week, but there are still a number of deserving players waiting for their turn, and more will arrive next year. An early look at the 2016 ballot...

Four players elected to the Hall of Fame

Results from the BBWAA Hall of Fame voting were announced Tuesday afternoon. Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, and Craig Biggio have each been elected, making the class of 2015 one of the largest in HOF history.

LGT's Hall of Fame voting results

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?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: The Others

Who else on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot could receive votes?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Curt Schilling

The most accomplished player born in Alaska, does that mean Curt Schilling should also make the Hall of Fame?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Edgar Martinez

He's either the best or second-best DH in the history of the DH. Isn't that enough?

Hall of Fame Candidate Profile: Larry Walker

A look at one of the most complete players of our era.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Mike Piazza

Mike Piazza is arguably the best offensive catcher of all time. So why is he still on the ballot for the third time?

Hall of Fame Candidate Profile: Alan Trammell

Will the 14th time on the Hall of Fame ballot be the charm for the former Tigers shortstop?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: John Smoltz

Not many can say they were the best reliever in baseball and the best starter in baseball for at least a year each. But what does that add up to?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Randy Johnson

Not as heralded as a few other pitching nominees, Randy Johnson ought to be a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Tim Raines

He wasn't even the greatest leadoff hitter of his time - but maybe that is not a fair standard.

Meeting Destiny and the Button-Molder at the Last

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Gary Sheffield

Great at the plate, not-so-great away from it, Gary Sheffield is a fascinating Hall of Fame candidate. But the current ballot logjam may limit his time for consideration.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Mark McGwire

Mark McGwire is another candidate with a PED issue, but his case is not nearly as cut and dried without the tainted link.

Forever Waiting Before the Colossi

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Mike Mussina

18 stellar seasons left Mussina near the bottom of the ballot last year, but does he deserve better?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Jeff Kent

Briefly a Cleveland Indian, Jeff Kent blossomed into one the best offensive second basemen ever while with the San Francisco Giants

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Roger Clemens

Like Bonds, the omission of Clemens is definitely based on the PED issue.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Brian Giles

Giles was an elite on-base machine and had a long, productive career, but is that enough to warrant a place in Cooperstown?

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Nomar Garciaparra

In the late 1990s/early 2000s, Garciaparra was one of the elite players in the game. Then injuries started to take their toll.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Barry Bonds

The omission from the Hall of Fame of the greatest power hitter most of us have ever seen is borderline criminal.

Hall of Fame candidate profile: Fred McGriff

This year's Baseball Hall of Fame ballot is loaded with players one can make a strong case for. Today we examine the case of Fred McGriff, who put up big numbers, but not as big as a number of players who began their career shortly after he did.
