Looking Ahead To Next Year?s Baseball Hall Of Fame Vote

Search The official site Daily Fix1 January 10, 2014, 4:30 PM Looking Ahead to Next Years Baseball Hall of Fame Vote Associated Press Atlanta Braves pitchers Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Greg Maddux Three players were elected into Baseballs Hall of Fame on Wednesday: Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas. Maddux and Glavine were famously part of the great Braves rotations of the 1990s, and next year, another Braves hurler from that era comes up for election: John Smoltz. But will Smoltz sail into Cooperstown on his first try, as his teammates did this year? Unfortunately for Smoltz, that seems unlikely, as hes going to be joined on the ballot for the first time by two pitchers who easily clear the bar for induction: Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez. Johnson is in the http://tayfuryilmaz.net/category/arts-and-entertainment conversation of the best left-handed pitcher of all time, and should get Kim nearly as much support from the voters as the 97.2% of votes that Maddux received this year. Martinez didnt have the same career longevity, but his peak seasons of 1999 and 2000 were perhaps the most dominant pair of years any pitcher has ever had. While Smoltz had some excellent performances in his own right, he doesnt quite stack up to those two; few pitchers would. Better comparisons for Smoltz are two pitchers who have been on the ballot for several years, and will be on the ballot again next year: Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina.
