Larry Stone’s Hall of Fame ballot: Another vote for Edgar Martinez


From Seattle Times’ columnist Larry Stone: 

Here is my Hall of Fame vote:

  • Jeff Bagwell
  • Craig Biggio
  • Barry Bonds
  • Roger Clemens
  • Tom Glavine
  • Greg Maddux
  • Edgar Martinez
  • Mike Piazza
  •  Tim Raines
  • Frank Thomas

Yes, I voted for the maximum 10 again – but the way I always look at it, I voted for three – first-timers Maddux, Glavine and Thomas – and re-voted for seven.

And, by virtue of the logjam that’s building up, I reluctantly unvoted for three: Curt Schilling, Alan Trammell and Larry Walker, all of whom got my check mark last year but just couldn’t fit on a 10-person ballot. I hope to be able to vote for all three again in the future.

Nobody elected to Hall of Fame in 2013

This was pretty much expected, but the results of annual Hall of Fame balloting are in and nobody received the required 75 percent support. Clearly, the suspicions about performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) did much to knock down the candidacy of a bunch of players who would otherwise be locks. I’m thinking of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, to start, maybe Jeff Bagwell and Mike Piazza. Craig Biggio led all vote-getters with 68 percent and I’m pretty confident     he’ll get in next year his second time around on the ballot.

Edgar Martinez had 35.9 percent, right around where he was a year ago.
