IHOF voting

The Internet Hall of Fame votes are in. If the netheads had their way, Ozzie Smith and Gary Carter would be in, while the likes of Steve Garvey and Dave Concepcion would be dropped from further consideration. In case you're curious, I voted for Smith, Carter, Rich Gossage (a travesty that he's not been enshrined), Bert Blyleven, Tommy John, and Alan Trammell.

In real life, only Ozzie Smith got in this year. Gary Carter missed by 11 votes. Here's how Rob Neyer would have voted, and here's The Sports Guy's view.
