The 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Class has been dissected by purists and fans for the past few years. The ballot was finally released Nov. 26, and it looks like there will not be a repeat of 2013, when no living players were on stage in July.
The ballot includes: Moises Alou, Jeff Bagwell, Armando Benitez, Craig Biggio, Barry Bonds, Sean Casey, Roger Clemens, Ray Durham, Eric Gagne, Tom Glavine, Luis Gonzalez, Jacque Jones, Todd Jones, Jeff Kent, Paul Lo Duca, Greg Maddux, Edgar Martinez, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff, Mark McGwire, Jack Morris, Mike Mussina, Hideo Nomo, Rafael Palmeiro, Mike Piazza, Tim Raines, Kenny Rogers, Curt Schilling, Richie Sexson, Lee Smith, J.T. Snow, Sammy Sosa, Frank Thomas, Mike Timlin, Alan Trammell, Larry Walker.
A few questions: Will Biggio make it this year with the likes of Maddux, Glavine and Frank Thomas added to the list? To the PED-suspected players get the same treatment as last year? Any love for Morris?
We’ll find out just after the holidays. In the meantime, feel free to debate.
