Former Minnesota Twins pitcher Bert Blyleven might be getting that call tomorrow that he’s been waiting for during the last 13 years that he’s been on the Baseball Hall of Fame ballot.
Blyleven, who is pretty outspoken regarding his own candidacy, has dropped some in the voting since baseballthinkfactory.org started tracking writers’ ballots that have been posted online.
Through 87 ballots found online, the Web site has Blyleven and fellow ballot veteran Andre Dawson at 81.6 percent of the votes. First-timer Roberto Alomar appears to be a lock at 88.5 percent.
The balloting is announced at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday), I believe. That works out great for our "Sports Talk" radio show on WDAY 970-AM from 1-2 p.m. tomorrow. I’ll be on, and no doubt we’ll be talking Hall of Fame, which is one of my favorite subjects to debate.
Sometime late tonight I’ll post who I think should be elected and why.
