The Poll allows you to vote for 15 players. I have eliminated the first year nominees because of that limitation. Vote for who you would put into the 2017 Hall of fame and leave comments.

Bagwell and Raines.....I like Martinez...He was good for baseball and his numbers are great.

Can't for the PED players...they screwed up the statistics and that is a humongous part of baseball.

I agree. I voted for some of the PED players, based on on field play. I would rather they never see the hall. Bonds would have been a HOF player regardless, but he owns a record he should not have and he took it away from a player who fought the good fight and became the major league all time home run leader through adversity, determination and hard work. Hank Aaron, is in my opinion, the greatest ball player to ever live. He is in the top 10 in almost every category he could be in. He did it without drugs and with lots of people rooting against him. Bonds cheated his way there and that belittles what Hank did.

can't vote for Bonds or Sosa. The same would go for Mark McGuire IMO.

As far as I'm concerned, the Home Run King is still Hank Aaron. 8)
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

I agree. I still believe that Hank was the best player of all time.
