NBC SportsTalk: Is this the most loaded Hall of Fame ballot ever?

Jan 9, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

Joe Sheehan and I joined Erik Kuselias on NBC SportsTalk last night to talk about the Hall of Fame ballot, and the first question he asked us was whether this was the most loaded Hall of Fame ballot ever. Then we jawed and complained a lot and then we predicted how many will make it in. My guess: shutout. No one gets in.

We’ll see at 2PM today if I was right.

    All this argument and no inductees?????

    That would be like a date with a supermodel to the most expensive restaurant in town; only to go home alone after dinner.

      Your only reliable first date is your hand.

        I resemble that remark.

      Well it appears I’m taking the taxi home alone.

    I’m almost willing to bet Jack Morris is the only one who makes it (He had 66% last year, he might benefit from the old codgers denouncing steroids and giving him enough to get over the hump)

    Thanks Craig for reminding the voters/readers that the steroid era was a baseball sanctioned event…….from the commissioner down to the club house guys…..You want to bet that Selig gets in?

    If you just went by that photo of Bonds, it would certainly be the most larded.

    This is the most loaded Hall of Fame ballot since the Hall of Fame began distributing ballots in 1968. It’s not even close. It’s not Marlon Brando and Lee J. Cobb in On the Waterfront, it’s Bambi Meets Godzilla.
