B/R's MLB lead writers agree: Greg Maddux is a no-brainer selection for the 2014 Hall of Fame class.

Though one is obliged to acknowledge that they're all big ones, the 2014 Hall of Fame ballot really feels like the big one. Big names. Big numbers. Big accomplishments. You name it, this year's ballot has it.

Such is life when those linked to or suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs are repeatedly denied entry. And because nobody was elected to Cooperstown in 2013, what was already a stacked ballot became even more stacked this year with new additions like Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas.

It's the job of the several hundred members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America who have votes to pick out those deserving of entry into the Hall of Fame. But because a few more opinions can't hurt, B/R's MLB lead writers are here to chime in before the selections are announced on Wednesday, Jan. 8. (The actual enshrinement goes down on July 27.)

Jason CataniaJoe Giglio, Jason MartinezZachary D. Rymer and Adam Wells don't have Hall of Fame votes, but each has filled out a theoretical ballot (maximum of 10 selections) and explained his choices accordingly. Read on to hear their two cents on who deserves to get into Cooperstown in 2014.
