    Hall of Fame to release ballot today

    https://m.mlb.com/news/article/102250...of-fame-ballot

    2 rock solid locks- Pedro and Randy. Biggio also gets in this year (3rd year on ballot). Smoltz makes it another year and Piazza also comes up just short.

    I just do not think he is a lock to make it this year. Is he a HOFer, yes, but I see him coming up short.

    I think he and Curt Schilling should both make it, mostly for being all-time-great post season pitchers. This in addition to being dominant starters in the steroids era and having the numbers (3000+ ks and 200+ wins) to support their candidacy.

    Smoltz has the bonus of closer for saves also. Think Eck

    Agree 100% but for a much shorter time.

    Eck Wins- 197, Eck Saves- 390 (10+ seasons as closer)
    Smotlz Wins- 213, Smoltz Saves- 154 (3 great seasons)

    Anybody else think that both Randy and Pedro's Speeches will be a very Confusing mess?

    Pedro's famous quote from 2004 ALCS after pitching game 2 in New York- "I actually realized that I felt like somebody important, because I caught the attention of 60,000, plus you guys, plus the whole world, watching a guy that is, you reverse the time back 15 years ago, I was sitting under a mango tree without 50 cents to pay for a bus. And today, I was the center of attention of the whole city of New York. I thank God for that, and you know what? I don't regret one bit what they do out there".

    I think his speech will be tremendous!!
