Three New Hall Of Famers

Congratulations to Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez on being selected for entry in to Cooperstown.

This year there were 34 players on the ballot with 16 being removed for not hitting the 5% minimum and Lee Smith for hitting his maximum year limit. I am quite happy to see that Edgar Martinez, with much support from the Mariners faithful, made a double digit jump from 43.4% in last year’s vote to 58.6% on this year’s ballot. He only has two more years of eligibility so he needs an increase of at least 8.2% each year over the next two years to make him the second Seattle Mariner to be selected.


  1. All three are Cooperstown worthy. But like SumoMenkoMan... I'm really happy to see Raines finally get in.
