One of the most difficult things, for me, about the Hall of Fame season is feeling like I don't have a say. I'm not a member of the BBWAA and I don't have a vote. Luckily, there are smaller polls on blogs where I can voice my opinion on Hall of Fame matters. But it sure would be nice to feel like a part of something bigger.
That's what I love about Graham Womack's Hall of Fame projects over at Baseball: Past and Present. He just unveiled his third annual poll where you are invited to name the 50 Best Players Not in the Hall of Fame. I've voted each year so far and I've already written about my planned vote this year.
When you vote, you are also asked to denote whether or not you believe each player on your list should actually be in the Hall. For example, maybe I'd add Tim Raines and believe he belongs. But perhaps I'll also list Tommy John, without believing he should actually be inducted.
So, go ahead and vote! And feel free to share your votes in the comments.
