Of course, Rickey is a lock. Before Barry Bonds put up the artificially inflated numbers at the end of his career, folks were making the case that Henderson was the best left fielder of all time. He is certainly the best leadoff hitter ever. He, like Jack [Rachel and I call him that] Robinson and Willie Mays, before him “became the game” when they took the field.

As I posted last year, I think Boit should be in.

A case can be made for some of the folks chosen for the the ballot. Not for Jesse Orosco,  both Vaughns, Jay Bell or Dan Plesac, however.

 

Here’s the complete list of those eligable:

 

 Harold Baines
 Jay Bell
 Bert Blyleven
 David Cone
 Andre Dawson
 Ron Gant
 Mark Grace
 Rickey Henderson
 Tommy John
 Don Mattingly
 Mark McGwire
 Jack Morris
 Dale Murphy
 Jesse Orosco
 Dave Parker
 Dan Plesac
 Tim Raines
 Jim Rice
 Lee Smith
 Alan Trammell
 Greg Vaughn
 Mo Vaughn
 Matt Williams
