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.
