I still wear Griffey shoes to this day.
Resident Yadier Molina, and Pro Wrestling super fan.
Wasn't Hoffman Mo before Mo was Mo? Granted, I didn't follow his career, but I thought he was pretty spectacular for the position of closer.
I hope no one saying Hoffman won't go first ballot also says that Mo will.
Griffey seems to be the only slam dunk on the ballot and that could move his numbers higher than normal. However, you'll always have the guy that leaves his entire ballot blank.
to put things in perspective the following didn't make it on the first ballot.
Joe DiMaggio, Jimmie Foxx, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Cy Young, Tris Speaker, Nap Lajoie, Mel Ott, Eddie Mathews, Roy Campanella and Harmon Killebrew ,
I think Griffey is the only one going in.
The Reliever OTY award is named after Hoffman!

I think Junior and Piazza get in with Hoffman missing by 5%. Hard to beleive it's McGwire's last year on the ballot already.
