Jeter headlines 18 newcomers on HOF ballot


NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter is among 18 newcomers on the 2020 Hall of Fame ballot. He is likely to be an overwhelming choice to join former New York Yankees teammate Mariano Rivera in Cooperstown after the reliever last year became the first unanimous pick by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.


A 14-time All-Star shortstop and five-time World Series champion, Jeter hit .310 with 3,465 hits in 20 seasons and was the 1996 AL Rookie of the Year. He has been CEO of the Miami Marlins the past two seasons.


Other newcomers announced Monday by the BBWAA include Cliff Lee, Josh Beckett, Jason Giambi, Paul Konerko, Rafael Furcal, Bobby Abreu and Alfonso Soriano.


Holdovers include Curt Schilling, who received 60.9% last year, Roger Clemens (59.5%), Barry Bonds (59.1%) and Larry Walker (54.6%). Schilling rose from 51.2% in 2018. Walker, on the ballot for the 10th and final time this year, increased from 34.1% in 2018.


Bonds and Clemens, whose candidacies have been tainted by allegations of steroid use, are both on for the eighth time. Clemens rose from 57.3% in 2018 and Bonds from 56.4%.


Ballots are sent to more than 400 BBWAA members with at least 10 consecutive years in the organization, and a player must appear on at least 75% to gain election. Ballots must be mailed by Dec. 31, and results will be announced Jan. 21.


Anyone elected will be inducted July 26 along with any selections by the Hall's modern era committee, which meets and votes in San Diego on Dec. 8.


Players remain on the ballot for up to 10 years, provided they receive at least 5% of the vote annually.


Roy Halladay, Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina were elected along with Rivera in the 2019 BBWAA vote.


The ballot: Bobby Abreu, Josh Beckett, Heath Bell, Barry Bonds, Eric Chavez, Roger Clemens, Adam Dunn, Chone Figgins, Rafael Furcal, Jason Giambi, Todd Helton, Raul Ibanez, Derek Jeter, Andruw Jones, Jeff Kent, Paul Konerko, Cliff Lee, Carlos Pena, Brad Penny, Andy Pettitte, J.J. Putz, Manny Ramirez, Brian Roberts, Scott Rolen, Curt Schilling, Gary Sheffield, Alfonso Soriano, Sammy Sosa, Jose Valverde, Omar Vizquel, Billy Wagner, Larry Walker

Besides Jeter the only one who I think for sure should be in is Larry Walker unless they penalize him for playing in Colorado. 


 Watching Schilling at his peak you would think he would be an easy choice but not as many dominant seasons as I would have thought.

I would suggest if they are not penalizing players for playing in Colorado, then Helton should be right there with Walker. He was a great fielder and has pretty impressive numbers. And Jeff Kent put up great numbers for a 2B. Many of the others are PED guys, so PASS.

Bonds and Clemens are not the only steriod users on this list. I wouldn't be surprised if more than half the players on the list didn't use something. Actually the only player on that list that would surprise me if they used something would be Jeter.

Good point Bomber on Helton. Very close in the numbers between Helton and Walker. The only issue maybe was Helton spent his whole career there while Walker started off in Montreal and finished with the Cards. Watching them play IMO Walker was the better player.


 Kent put up numbers but he was one of those players who started putting up big number at 29 in the PED era. That probably hurts him.

 Thinking about Visquel. If Ozzie is in there he might have a shot. He was as good a glove as I have ever seen.Ozzie was better but an agruement can be made to get him in.

Helton was terrific but as has been said, could be penalized for playing at Coors. But he put up decent numbers away from Coors; comparable to Walker's.


Trivia...Helton was Peyton Manning's backup at Tennessee.

One thing is pretty much guaranteed ... Jeter will not be unanimous.

Based on the previous inductees percentage of votes, he shouldn't be.

I think I heard that once. Very cool fact.

Excellent take on Vizquel. I missed his name on that list. He was a tremendous fielder.
