I am curious, was the person who voted for Eric Young conscious when he made his vote? Why are some of these writers allowed to vote? How does Radke, Lopez, Mueller, or even Vinny Castilla receive votes? What a joke....I do feel Lee Smith is worthy, but it looks more and more like he will not get in. Another statement made against Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro with steroids. Question is, what do the voters do when Alex Rodriguez is eligible? Interesting.....
