Monday, Baseball’s Corridor of Fame introduced its Corridor of Fame poll that will likely be voted on by members of the Baseball Writers Affiliation of America.

Fourteen new gamers will likely be on the poll this 12 months: Bronson Arroyo, Carlos Beltrán, Matt Cain, R.A. Dickey, Jacoby Ellsbury, Andre Ethier, J.J. Hardy, John Lackey, Mike Napoli, Jhonny Peralta, Francisco Rodríguez, Huston Road, Jered Weaver and Jayson Werth.

With the attainable exception of Carlos Beltrán, I don’t see anybody in that listing who is likely to be inducted in 2023. Whereas Beltran’s career numbers make him a robust candidate, his affiliation with the Astros dishonest scandal may make voters assume twice.

Returning to the poll in 2023: Bobby Abreu, Mark Buehrle, Todd Helton, Torii Hunter, Andruw Jones, Jeff Kent, Andy Pettitte, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Scott Rolen, Jimmy Rollins, Gary Sheffield, Omar Vizquel and Billy Wagner.

Of the returning gamers, Helton and Rolen have an honest case, as does Wagner.

You’ll be aware I left off Ramirez and A-Rod from that “respectable case” listing. By numbers alone these two price induction. As you absolutely know, although, each gamers are tainted with PED suspensions, which stored them from being inducted final 12 months and probably will achieve this once more.

The Hall of Fame notes:

Candidates stay on the BBWAA poll for 10 years offered they don’t seem to be elected and they’re named on a minimum of 5 p.c of all ballots solid every year.

I might say most of this 12 months’s new names on the poll will likely be eradicated after one 12 months’s price of voting.

The inductees, if any, from the BBWAA poll will likely be introduced Tuesday, January 24 on a stay MLB Community broadcast at 5 p.m. CT. The induction ceremony in Cooperstown will occur Sunday, July 23.
