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.

Does anyone know where the 2020 HOF selection process for former Negro Leaguers stands? I had heard about this a couple of years ago and was wondering if it is still happening...

I agree Baines isnt a hall of famer. Based on voting trends Id put money on Edgar getting in this year.

They are all eligible again to be considere for the veterans committee to vote on. They still need to get to the committee and then get the necessary 75% from the committee, which will be no easy feet given the committees history.

I can honestly say in all my years never heard Ryans name mentioned.

Is there really any doubt about Pudge? He'd noticeably shrunk when he came to the Yankees. Don't have any other explanation for it.

I never heard Nolan"s name mentioned anywhere before, nor have I heard any credible sources about Rickey either.
Pudge, Bagwell, and Piazza always were mentioned.

Canseco more or less confirmed Rickey by saying they just inducted one the week he (Rickey) was inducted. Nolan Ryan retired before there was much public conversation about PED use in baseball, but if you go only by the stats, he's more suspicious than anyone else (including even Barry Bonds). We've discussed it here before, and a Google search will reveal that plenty of others have discussed it as well. Not that we have proof of anything untoward in that clubhouse.

Yes, I wrote directly to The President of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Jeff Idelson, and he assured me that the Negro Leaguers would be on the Early Baseball ballot in 2020 and again every ten years afterwards.
