The 2013 Baseball HOF Ballot Results: No One is Deemed Worthy

Well, voting has completed on the 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot. For just the third time since I believe 1965, no one was voted into the Hall of Fame. It’s not too surprising since some of the veterans on the list have been available for induction for years without getting in and the first-timers weren’t quite up to snuff for inclusion or have the dreaded PED cloud hanging over them. The writers made clear the suspected PED users weren’t even close.

The results are below (number of votes, name and percentage of votes – 75% is needed to be elected):

388 Craig Biggio 68.20%
385 Jack Morris 67.70%
339 Jeff Bagwell 59.60%
329 Mike Piazza 57.80%
297 Tim Raines 52.20%
272 Lee Smith 47.80%
221 Curt Schilling 38.80%
214 Roger Clemens 37.60%
206 Barry Bonds 36.20%
204 Edgar Martinez 35.90%
191 Alan Trammell 33.60%
123 Larry Walker 21.60%
118 Fred McGriff 20.70%
106 Dale Murphy 18.60%
96 Mark McGwire 16.90%
75 Don Mattingly 13.20%
71 Sammy Sosa 12.50%
50 Rafael Palmeiro 8.80%
19 Bernie Williams 3.30%
18 Kenny Lofton 3.20%

    Ill be honest.

    The voters have been tainted. they were presumptious and assumpitious in my opinion.

    They should all be fired and a new method for election determined.

    How is Biggio not a 1st ballot HOFer.

    Ok I get the cheating aspect , but other than palmeiro who on that list actually tested positive for PED’s steroids, HGH etc..

    Innocent until proven guilty. That makes the current voters ineligible to ever vote again in my opinion.

    The hall of fame is for the fans not for the BBWAA to be the judge and jury!
