Many next Hall of Fame ballots will be filled with the names we know and love: Craig Biggio, Greg Maddux, Jeff Kent, and even names we hate: Barry Bonds.
But, looking longer into the future, which players currently playing baseball will get the ticket?
With many records being broken and set, there have been many arguments as to who should get in.
Records never even though breakable, gone, quicker and easier.
But, many of these players have used or have been accused of using performance enhancing drugs.
Will those fears overshadow the records?
Well, my opinion settles in these 10 slides.
These are the 10:
He got No. 2, which meant he has to be in the Hall.
He's also had a good, if not great career, full of clutch moments.
And just another thing on his resume:
He's the Yankee's captain.
Despite the allegations of steroid use, I believe that the future home run king will be in the HOF.
He is in the elite 40-40 club, he has too many MVPs, and his career home-run numbers continue to skyrocket.
210 wins and a 3.26 career ERA. Very good stats, but to go with that he has 147 saves.
One of the best pitchers of our time.
This guy has a chance for 600 home runs and should make it before his career's over.
A sure-fire in the Hall.
Not only is he a great hitter with 600 home runs, he is great in the clubhouse, and really nice.
The press loves him, so he'll get in first try.
200 hits, .300 batting average, all star, and gold glove every year.
3,000 career hits, some 2,000 here in the U.S.
And Seattle loves him.
He will get 500 wins, may be the last pitcher to do so. He's had a great career and will be the tallest player in the Hall.
Five 20-win seasons, and 305 career wins.
He will be one of the last 300 win pitchers, and had a great, long, memorable career.
While difficult for relievers to get into Cooperstown, I see the career leader in saves getting in easy. He's had a great career, full of some wonderful, and not so wonderful (loss vs. four home run dodgers?) moments, and he is well liked.
Expect him in first try.
