It’s almost that time! The time to argue for a couple of months on-end about the Hall of Fame! The ballot has been released. Here it is, with 17 holdovers and 17 newcomers.

Here are the new guys:

Randy Johnson
Pedro Martinez
John Smoltz
Carlos Delgado
Gary Sheffield
Nomar Garciaparra
Troy Percival
Rich Aurilia
Aaron Boone
Tony Clark
Jermaine Dye
Darin Erstad
Cliff Floyd
Brian Giles
Tom Gordon
Eddie Guardado
Jason Schmidt

Quick analysis: Johnson and Martinez should be shoe-ins. Smoltz will get a LOT of support and could very well make it. No one else need apply, though I think Gary Sheffield deserves far more support than he’ll get.

And here are the holdovers, with their vote totals from last year:

Craig Biggio (74.8%)
Mike Piazza (62.2%)
Jeff Bagwell (54.3%)
Tim Raines (46.1%)
Roger Clemens (35.4%)
Barry Bonds (34.7%)
Lee Smith (29.9%)
Curt Schilling (29.2%)
Edgar Martinez (25.2%)
