by on December 31, 2011 · 6 comments

Once again, as a member of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance, Pitchers Hit Eighth is casting a ballot for that organization’s symbolic Baseball Hall of Fame voting.

Four of us from the site got together on Episode 10 of the Pitchers Hit Eighth podcast this week to go through the ballot name-by-name to come up with our recommendations for induction.

You’ll have to listen to the podcast for our individual player comments and insights, but for tabulation and transparency purposes, here are our inductees:

Barry Larkin: 4 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis, Andrew)
Jeff Bagwell: 4 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis, Andrew)
Edgar Martinez: 4 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis, Andrew)
Alan Trammell 4 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis, Andrew)
Mark McGwire: 4 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis, Andrew)
Rafael Palmeiro: 3 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh, Dennis)

And those falling short:

Lee Smith: 2 PH8 votes (Nick, Josh)
Tim Raines: 2 PH8 votes (Nick, Andrew)
Larry Walker: 2 PH8 votes (Nick, Dennis)
Bernie Williams: 1 PH8 vote (Dennis)

No votes:

Brad Radke, Terry Mulholland, Bill Mueller, Eric Young, Brian Jordan, Phil Nevin, Tony Womack, Tim Salmon, Jeromy Burnitz, Ruben Sierra, Javy Lopez, Vinny Castilla, Juan Gonzalez, Dale Murphy, Don Mattingly, Fred McGriff, Jack Morris

We’re happy to hear your opinion on the ballot and debate each player’s merits, respectfully. Happy Hall of Fame!

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
