Baseball Hall of Fame 2012: Only 6 on Ballot Are Worthy

Of all 27 players and pitchers on the 2012 ballot for the Hall of Fame, only six are suitable to be placed in that institution.

The list is as watered down as it has ever been, especially since the ones who have the best credentials are linked in some fashion to the steroids disgrace.

Should someone be "eligible" for the Hall of Fame simply because they have been retired for five years? What kind of vetting system is that?

Not one pitcher of the four who appear on the ballot pass my smell test for the Hall of Fame. And face it folks, if you don't get past the smell test, you are not going to make it on my ballot.

I have included the six who I believe should be enshrined. There are several more who should be, but for whatever reasons were passed over and sent to the veterans committee where dreams go to die. I will reveal them in reverse order saving the best one for last.

Buckle up and let's get this buggy started.
