1. I'm voting for a lot of relief pitchers. If it's a legit stat, put 'em in:
BERT BLYLEVEN- comparable to folks already in there
ANDRE DAWSON
RICH GOSSAGE
OREL HERSHISHER-only first timer I'm voting for
TOMMY JOHN-got a surgery named for him; almost reason enough
JIM RICE-should have gotten in a while ago
LEE SMITH-the saves leader
BRUCE SUTTER

2. Hershisher, Sutter, maybe Rice. Maybe no one. Once upon a time Gooden was a lock.

3. GARY DiSARCINA, ALEX FERNANDEZ, WALT WEISS

I'm notoriously soft when it comes to putting people in the Hall. I still can't believe Tony Oliva, Mickey Lolich, and others aren't in.

I would vote for

BLYLEVEN
DAWSON
GOSSAGE
HERSHISHER
RICE
SMITH
DALE MURPHY
DAVE CONCEPCION

and I believe a case can be made for Sutter and John, too!

2. I gotta believe this may be Goose's year. Hershisher is well-liked by almost everyone, so he'll get in. Dawson is a sentimental favorite, too.

3. Hal Morris, Fernandez, Weiss, DiSarcina, Doug Jones, Gregg Jeffries
