Call me crazy, but I think Maddux, Glavine and Thomas woulda made the Hall of Fame even if Congress didn’t hold steroids hearings.

In the interest of full disclosure before I jump into the meat of the subject and poke some fun at some Jeopardy! contestants, I consistently whiff on a good 99 percent of Jeopardy! clues. But when it’s Teen Jeopardy time, or if there’s a baseball category, I’m ready to risk it all on a Daily…

Don’t look at me like that. There’s literally nothing else going on right now. Anyway: The great Jay Jaffe — the creator of the JAWS Hall of Fame scoring system which ranks a candidate’s worthiness of induction — takes a look at the potential Hall of Fame ballots over the next five years to see…

Because one can never get too much of a head start. As Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas exit the ballot as Hall of Fame inductees, a new and nearly as intriguing class of first timers will arrive in 11 months: Randy Johnson: 5 Cy Youngs, 2nd all-time in strikeouts, 303 wins Pedro Martinez:…

It’s Dan LeBatard. And he explains his rationale over at the website today. It’s a pretty good rationale. And, the headline here and picture to the right notwithstanding, LeBatard received no payment for it. He gave it up willingly and freely. And the ballot that the Deadspin readers submitted — Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine,…

The 2014 induction class of the Baseball Hall of Fame was announced Wednesday afternoon and Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are on their way to Cooperstown. Players must be named on 75% of the Baseball Writers Association of America’s ballots to get in. Maddux was named on 97.2%, Glavine 91.9% and Thomas 83.7%.…

I, like many, believe four players will get elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame today: Greg Maddux will be elected almost unanimously (I suspect at least four people will not vote for him), Tom Glavine will be in the mid-to-high 90s in percentage, Frank Thomas will go in comfortably and Craig Biggio will just…

Part I: A short history First, just a little bit of history. The Baseball Hall of Fame, more or less, was the brainchild of two people. The first knew nothing whatsoever about baseball. The second romanticized the game beyond all reason. You can think about whose spirit still lingers over Cooperstown, N.Y. The first was…

Every year my friend Repoz over at Baseball Think Factory keeps track of the Hall of Fame balloting via his “HOF Ballot Collecting Gizmo!” It’s a nice snapshot of what voters who have made their ballots public thus far are doing. At the moment, with 14.4% of the vote in (based on last year’s number…

As I’ve noted several times, my Hall of Fame thing isn’t necessarily voters getting “the right ballot.” It’s just about having an actual coherent philosophy and approach and maintaining some level of intellectual consistency about yourself. For example, Ken Rosenthal and I differ sharply about PED users in the Hall of Fame, but his Hall…

This is the movie that is based — quite loosely, it appears, anyway — on the Rinku and Dinesh story. I feel like it’ll be a good movie regardless of how close it hews to reality, though. For one thing Jon Hamm is cool. For another: the Curt Schilling cameo looks like it’ll be really,…
