HOF Ballot - 2049, 3rd Ballot

Post by CT_Eagle »

This ballot only contains players that are on their 3rd ballot. They were not voted in on their 1st or 2nd ballot. If they do not get into the hall on this vote, they will not get in. Please note that any mention of these players on an all-time leaders list were accurate when the player retired.

Rules for induction

1. Must have 10 yrs of service time in the majors
2. Any owner can nominate any retired player, including those with less than 10 years. This is due to the many years in the past where there was no HOF voting.
3. A player will have 3 opportunities to be voted into the HOF
4. Must receive 2/3 of votes cast to be inducted

Here are the nominees.

Voting will close at noon ET on 9Apr21.

Tollman's defense looks like hall of fame +102 .966 @ 3B, when you add in the batting production too he gets my vote.

Mutigliano

Ellington

I am voting for Ellington and Tollman.

All these guys are borderline...
I wanted to vote for sweet art but and he had 5 awesome years. Then it seemed like he was one of those guys who was probably the benefactor of being the closer on a great team but really wasn’t an elite pitcher as his ERA was over 3.50 more than it was under it.

I understand your reasoning Rat. I am giving all these guys the benefit of this is their 3rd chance and many have passed away. Seem like the type that might just make it in on their last go round.

Angel, I have also been tainted by the Carlton Fisk League. If you don't have 3000 hits, 500 HR, 1750 runs or RBI's or an average above .300, then an ERA under 3.25, 250+ wins or 500 saves you don't get a single yes vote.

Had a guy that had a career average of .319 only got 1 yes vote, which was mine. He was a D health guy but had 2200 hits. So they have trained me to be a little tougher.

Sweet Art it is for me.

I know the ERA is high but I cannot ignore the 415 saves. 400+ saves does not happen often in this league.

Ellington has received a lot of votes which I found surprising. 3 All Star appearances and 1 Gold Glove, that is it for accolades. He was a slightly above average player during much of his career. The .308 BA is notable and so is his stolen base total but that is about it.

Nguyen has a lot of awards. An MVP, 3 GGs and 11 All Star appearances with 8 of them being a starter. Looking at his stats I can only assume that there were not that many good catchers while he played. A .284 BA with 314 HRs and only 8 SBs doesn't do it for me. He never once led the league in any category.

Tollman is very similar to Nguyen, with a few more steals. Just not enough to get my vote.

1 vote for Sweet Art.

Voting closes tomorrow at noon ET. Be sure to get your vote in.
