Larry Walker should def get in. Yea playing in colorado helped his number a bit but that shouldn't be held against him. He was also a GG guy hit for a high average. Def deserving.
Presenting the 2013 New York Mets Outfield.
The two biggest disappointments are:
1. Barry Bonds
2. Big Mac.
Barry Bonds may have been considered one of the greatest players ever (certainly in the conversation) prior to the juice. He was easily a 1st time HOF. I will never understand why he would do anything remotely close to casting a cloud over what was a magnificent career.
Sure, the Bonds loyals will say "it was never proven" but we are all smart enough to know that your head doesn't get 2 inches bigger and your shoe size doesn't go up 2 sizes passed the age of 30 (no he didn't hit puberty again...and again).
As much as his career stats warrant a HOF vote, the PED issue makes me believe his name should not be placed next to the greats like: Mantle, Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, Koufax, Cobb, etc. He cheated and therefore is out...along with the rest of them.
I have a feeling poor Tim Raines will get screwed by this class. He has been gaining some significant momentum.

So nobody wants to tell me why a closer deserves being voted in but a DH doesn't?
I voted Bonds, Clemens, Schilling, Biggio, Piazza, Raines, Trammel, Walker, Edgar, and Big Mac.
Close to mine, but I can't see voting for Mac. Look at his career progression. He was just about done, and then he's Paul Bunyan. Unlike Bonds and Clemens he doesn't appear to have reached HOF status before he started.
