PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

I'd like to start with Hall business, though: the 'Expansion Era Committee' announced their working ballot for the year (results on 12/9) and it reads as follows:

New:

Joe Torre
Tony LaRussa
Bobby Cox
Dave Parker
Dan Quisenberry

Holdovers:

George Steinbrenner
Marvin Miller
Dave Concepcion
Steve Garvey
Tommy John
Billy Martin
Ted Simmons

With the new names... I think Torre gets in, but not necessarily on this ballot: there may be those who feel he didn't get enough done given the resources available. LaRussa's a lock. Bobby Cox is a poker player who gets dealt pocket aces on every hand and never figured out that a river card was coming: he'll get in eventually, but I want to see him miss this year just to hear the screams. There's an argument for Parker, but others will make it. The Quiz is the All-Quotation Hall on the first ballot.

Holders... There's a thousand arguments to be made against Steinbrenner: the problem is that there's just as many for him. Miller will get in when the last of the old guard is no longer there to block it. Can't see Garvey going through, or Concepcion. Tommy John's ligament could be voted on separately. Simmons: no idea. And Billy Martin -- I think he's in the Miller category: too many with bad memories and his impact won't be recognized until the desire for belated revenge goes away.

However, I do think we're getting at least one inductee. Unless, y'know, the voters decide the entire group used steroids.

And while I'm at it, the voters:

Former players & managers

Rod Carew
Carlton Fisk
Whitey Herzog
Tom Lasorda
Paul Molitor
Joe Morgan
Phil Niekro
Frank Robinson

Paul Beeston (Blue Jays exec)
Andy MacPhail (multiple clubs, retired)
Dave Montgomery (head of Phillies)
Jerry Reinsdorf (White Sox owner)
Steve Hirdt (Elias Sports Bureau)
Bruce Jenkins (San Francisco Chronicle)
Jack O'Connell (secretary-treasurer BWAA
Jim Reeves (Fort Worth Star-Telegram writer, retired)
