    Agree to a certain extent. I am happy that Crane woke up and did something, though. Need to lock in Tucker, Bregman and Altuve. Altuve will definitely stay, but I think they'll lose one of the other 2. Ugh.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    Investigation on Wander is in.

    He is done.

    He will be in prison.

    Giants won 3 WS with 3 different closers. None were big money. The Giants one shot a high dollar closer was a disaster (armando benitez). It is my belief it is best to just “find a guy” and put him in the role.

    The Mets tried that with disastrous results.

    The Halos have yet to find a guy...

    Seems to me the standards are getting lower to get in. Some odd parameters. 
    It's a hopeless situation...

    I like the 3 they voted in and have no issues with those left out, if steroids are still reason to keep them out.  Beltre was rumored but never caught, I believe.   He was badass defender and hitter, though.


    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    How the hell is Billy Wagner that close to being a HoFer? He was a major choker.
    He was an elite reliver for many years.  He is one I would have voted in.  Helton?  Nope.  Beltre, yes.  Mauer? Nope.

    "elite reliever" guy who pitches one inning and chokes when it really matters - Is Kimbrel a HoFer too?

    Don't make me bestow the name "Tempos" on bad takes Mister! ;)

    Kimbrel isn't even close to Wagner, stop it.
    Edit: Wagner at least pitched in a different, more difficult era, how about that?

    I agree. He should get in & the fact that it's taken this long is silly. I would have voted for Wagner, Beltre & Mauer.

    Not sure if I'm guru or not, but of the guys on this year's ballot I'd have put in:
    ARoid
    Money Ramirez
    Beltre

    Helton I'm a no. More deserving than a Harold Baines, but still not quite HoF material.
    Mauer a maybe because he was a catcher for a good chunk of his career which has to account for something, otherwise his stats would keep him out IMO.

    Also, I'd have written in Clemens and Bonds. Those 2 not in Cooperstown is just wrong. There are definitely some juicers in there (Griffey, Piazza, Pudge Rodriguez), so no reason to exclude the 2 best players from the era.

    As for Wagner, looking at the small number of closer who've been inducted, I don't think Wagner measures up.

    Losing track of who did and didn't juice...

    I'd have voted for Mauer, Beltre, Sheffield. And Utley & Rollins but I'm definitely biased there. No pitchers? Well none of 'em deserve it!

    You can use this for my takes. Here's Johnny!
