    Walker doubled his percentage. Voters are wising up to him at least. Schilling continues to be punished for his political views. Edgar has a good chance now too.

    I can't see walker getting inducted with only 2 more cracks. Even though he deserves to.

    Stupidity of the voting process aside, good to finally see Bonds, Clemens, Mussina and Edgar picking up voting steam.

    Omar Vizquel with more votes than Manny Ramirez, Gary Sheffield, Scott Rolen, Sammy Sosa and Andruw Jones. Fuck off

    Lol @ Hoffman over Rolen, Bonds, Edgar, Schilling, Walker. Why? Lots of Savez?

    Its so sad that the fucking retarded BBWAA get to be the gatekeepers.

    Lol looked it up and Scott Rolen has nearly 20 WAR on Guerrero. Sad!

    I don't understand what the case against Rolen is from these dinosaurs. Really good hitter with some great offensive seasons, and is one of the best 3B defenders ever, with Gold Gloves for days. It seems like a no-brainer to vote for him.

    Defense doesn’t matter. Except when they decide that it does and elect fucking Omar Vizquel.

    Met Chipper twice...both times he was a douchebag. Pretty much makes every D-Bag list out there (may not have been caught cheating in baseball but did on his wife, supported John Rocker, supported the Chop with incredibly racist comments) but he makes first ballot when others are held back because of supposedly not being good people (Alomar comes to mind). No argument that he deserves to be there. Just hate the BBWAA and their moral high ground until it's a good ole' white boy.

    Vizquel gets more love than him because why? He played SS and Rolen played 3B? Well Rolen was a really good hitter and Vizquel was a really bad hitter. Makes no sense.

    Seriously what the fuck? Great defender but he wasn't the magician that Ozzie Smith was and hell even he was a better hitter. Scott Rolen was ridiculous, just as deserving of merit for his defense and much more for his offense.
