No real surprise but I was a big fan of all three players. Very happy

Re: Maddux,Glavine,Thomas to hall of fame

"Roger Clemens (37.6 percent in 2013 to 35.4 percent in 2014), Barry Bonds (36.2 to 34.7), Mark McGwire (16.9 to 11.0), Sammy Sosa (12.5 to 7.2) and Rafael Palmeiro (8.8 to 4.4), who all compiled big numbers but were tainted by the steroids era, each saw their vote percentages drop. Clemens drew the most votes with 202."

"Biggio, in his second appearance on the ballot, was at 427 votes and 74.8 percent, matching Nellie Fox in 1985 and Pie Traynor in 1947 for the smallest missing margins."

Happy that Cox, Glavine, Maddux go in the same year. Hopefully, Smoltz in 2015.

Re: Maddux,Glavine,Thomas to hall of fame

I agree with Skip Bayless when it comes to hall of fame. If I have to think about it, than you're not in

He belongs, probably won't get in on the first ballot. Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez are also eligible in 2015.

They definently belong. I don't have to think twice. Smoltz I have to think twice, so in my mind he's not in. It's the HOF not Hall of very good

I think he deserves to be in.

I took this from a blog:

"Smoltz is the only player that can boast 200 career wins and 100 career saves, with only Eckersley's 197 wins and 390 saves serving as a comparison. Smoltz is one of only 16 pitchers to record 3,000 career strikeouts. He finished a 21-year career with an accumulated 78.4 fWAR, good for 23rd all-time."

He will probably get in. Those are some amazing stats
