Minnesota Twins’ Eddie Guardado On Hall of Fame Ballot


The ballot for this year’s Hall of Fame candidates was revealed on Monday. One former Minnesota Twins player was on the new list of candidates. That man has been in the headlines recently, too. Eddie Guardado is up for the Hall of Fame.

Now there is no chance that Every Day Eddie will be making the Hall of Fame, but could he get a vote? Sure. Jacque Jones got a vote last year and Eddie is a more valuable player than Jones. Discuss if you must.

Also on the newbies list is the shoo-ins (at least someday): Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.

The next level of Carlos Delgado, Gary Sheffield and Nomar Garciaparra.

The remainder of the list has Troy Percival, Rich Aurilia, Aaron Boone, Tony Clark, Jermaine Dye, Darin Erstad, Cliff Floyd, Brian Giles, Tom Gordon and Jason Schmidt.

The carry-overs from previous ballots: Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Lee Smith, Curt Schilling, Edgar Martinez, Alan Trammell, Mike Mussina, Jeff Kent, Fred McGriff, Mark McGwire, Larry Walker, Don Mattingly and Sammy Sosa.

There’s a lot of big names on the ballot this year and it should be a nice looking class no matter what, but it will be another year without a Twin induction.
