This is my first post so I’ll keep it short.
If you have a HOF ballot, you need to vote for at least 10 players every time. I, personally, can name, easily, 15 players every year (since 2013) that I would put in. Any number of votes less than 10 has (and is going to) severely damage any march towards 75%.
So far I’ve seen a lot of commentary on who the writers are voting for, but first things first, they need to be vilified for a ballot with less than 10. Then we can examine any highly-questionable choices they’re making.
In the past it’s been possible to hold a slot for and give a vote to a favorite, however obviously-undeserving, candidate. I’m for this, but not during a time when there is such a backlog of truly worthy HOF-caliber players on the ballot.
That’s my 2¢.
