Each year we run a series of Hall of Fame polls, to see who we'd vote into the Hall, if we were lucky enough to have the vote. Over the next couple of weeks we'll run through the players on the ballot.

We have an advantage over the BBWAA (how come, if they are writers, they don't know that baseball is one word?), we can vote for more than 10 guys. With a ballot as crowded as this one, there are too many good candidates, with only being allowed 10 on the ballot, it's tough get deserving players to the 75% mark. Add in that many writers refuse to list ten, they don't clear many names off the list for next year.

The first name on the list is Garret Anderson. He had a very good career.. He was an All Star 3 times, 2 Silver Slugger awards, 3 times getting MVP votes, finishing as high as 4th. Over 100 RBI 4 times in a row. Came up just short of 300 home runs and has 2500 hits. There are worse players in the Hall. I don't think he is quite what I'd rank as a Hall of Famer but he's not all that far off. He had a good peak and a long career.
