Default 2019 Hall of Fame voting question

So I know who is on the regular ballot and I can guess who will get in from it but who is on the “veterans” ballot in December ? I don’t even know what era is up for election last this year . Any insight is appreciated . Thanks

The "Today's Game Committee (for 1988 - Present) will meet at the 2018 Winter Meetings, and consider players for election.

From the Baseball HOF website:

"Four separate electorates considered by era will create a single composite ballot of managers, umpires, executives and long-retired players on rotating basis, with the Today's Game Committee candidates to be considered at the 2016 Winter Meetings for induction in 2017 and again at the 2018 Winter Meetings for induction in 2019; the Modern Baseball Committee candidates to be considered at the 2017 Winter Meetings for induction in 2018 and again at the 2019 Winter Meetings for induction in 2020; and the Golden Days and Early Baseball committees candidates to be considered at the 2020 Winter Meetings for induction in 2021. The cycle then repeats with the Today's Game and Modern Baseball committees each meeting twice every five years, the Golden Days Committee meeting once every five years and the Early Baseball Committee meeting once every 10 years."

Harold Baines, Albert Belle, Will Clark, Orel Hershiser, Davey Johnson, Mark McGwire, Lou Piniella and George Steinbrenner were on the ballot last time and not elected. I would expect some of those guys on it.

Look at Harold Baines stats and you will see that he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He is in the Top 50 All Time in many statistical categories.

DHs that aren't elite hitters don't belong in the Hall. Harold was a fine player for a long time but his peak was nowhere near high enough. If Baines gets in before Edgar, that's a crime.

I agree Baines isn’t a hall of famer. Based on voting trends I’d put money on Edgar getting in this year.

When was this vote? I don't see Albert Belle on any lists past 2007 when he fell off. And McGwire only fell off in 2016. I highly doubt a committee would vote on him again so soon.

2 years ago when they voted on this class, Selig and Schuerholtz were the winners, no players. Lou Piniella came in 3rd so I’m guessing he’ll be back. Pure speculation but my guess is Will Clark and Orel Hershiser get another turn on the ballot. David Cone and Bret Saberhagen get added on. Also 1-2 new executives.
