Congratulations Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven

New, 34 comments

I would have liked Tim Raines to have made the cut but you can't have everything. At least he jumped up from 30% of the vote last year to 37.5% this year. 

Alomar and Blyleven are great choices. It will be good to see someone in there wearing a Jay's cap. 

If you want to compare the BBWAA of with our vote, our's is here. We would have elected Alomar, Walker, Raines, Blyleven and Larkin. We liked Walker, far more than the Writers. 

Here is the BBWAA vote:
