Who would you vote into the Hall of Fame?


The positives: Cal Ripken and Tony Gwynn are on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time this year. The negative: So is Mark McGwire.

Now I know Gwynn’s body changed as much over the course of his career as McGuire’s did, but the Padres’ star did it the old-fashioned way: with doughnuts, pasta and beer. So he would get my vote, if I had one. McGwire’s body changed because of, allegedly, performance-enhancing drugs. Because of that, he would never get my vote, despite the numbers he put up.

Cal Ripken? Yes. Jose Canseco? Jay Buhner? No.
