My HOF Ballot

I am a lucky voter in Joe Posnanski's "Pozcar Awards." Here is my ballot for baseball's hall of fame:

Bert "Be Home" Blyleven
Andre Dawson
Goose Gossage
Don Mattingly
Jack Morris
Jim Rice
Pete Rose
Alan Trammell

Some comments:

Blyleven: I've always loved Bert. He's not given nearly the credit he deserves.
Dawson: I grew up at a time when cable TV was just coming into homes, and our family quickly became Cubs fans. I will always have Dawson's menacing batting stance burned in my memory.
Pete Rose: Yeah, he bet on baseball. But you just can't deny his place in baseball history. The guy could flat out hit better than anybody in the game.
Alan Trammell: I wish he had never taken that manager job in Detroit. His reputation is forever stained after losing all those games. Great player, though.
