Mine would be your top 5, plus 7 and 8.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Not enough getting in? I honestly wouldn't put Sammy or McGwire in(I'm not a Sammy hater either). I'd leave Clemens off and put Bonds in before him, strictly because I think Bonds was a surefire HOFer w/o roids, while I doubt Clemens was. I'd put Clemens in eventually though.(and yes, I fully admit it's pretty dumb to not just put guys in immediately, if I'm eventually going to cave on them.)

I think Edgar is supremely underrated and have no problem putting him in and I'd have no issue with Mussina, with his entire body of work coming from the AL East.

Would you have put them all in?(on Tim's list)

Junior with most ever, 99.3%. 437 out of 440. Those 3 wankers need to be put up against a wall.

Clemens was at something like 80 fWAR from 84-96 with the Red Sox - he's a no doubter

Holy [expletive]. I honestly thought he was in the 50's. So yeah, I'd add him obviously.

I'm glad Piazza is finally in there. He should've been a first ballot guy.

1 or 2 players per year is fine. 7 or 8 is silly. Less than 1% of the players who have played in MLB are in the HoF.

I didn't remember him being there anywhere near 12 seasons, thought it 7-8 for some reason.
