**No eligibility thresholds were modified** A very small class of retirees overall this season. A few guys flirting with the 50% mark. Kinsler came in much lower than I had expected given his premium position.

Webb is at 50%. He has 13 years of eligiblity left. If he increases 2% per year, he will get in.

Decent first year number for Ambrose Fullerton. I wonder if he'll at least crack the 50% mark at some point. He had a really nice stretch for 10-11 years, but maybe not quite a HOFer...

I think as more guys retire with statistical milestones and full-length careers, the system will play out much better.

Most players drop or gain very little once they are eligible. Most players now have had full careers and still only one guys is within 25% of being elected.

I guess we will have to call it the Hall of None instead.

Glad the real HOF is not like this or it would only have maybe five guys inducted.

Anyway it could be changed?

Let's give each owner a vote and if it reaches 75%. Just putting it in the hands of the owners instead of the computer. There are some guys that are worthy, even if long term they don't stand up to some of the guys later. Would be cool to be like the writers and make these decisions, but it would fall on participation from each owner. Again, it wouldn't take much time, but even still, it seems some don't do much at all. Just my thought.

I plan on instituting some sort of veteran's committee for the players that don't end up making the cut with the software. It's not a computer doing this, I manually input stats into a formula I found and modified. It will pay off in the long run, just a few more years and everything should settle out.

I will be working on the 2023 class soon.

I think its fairly realistic. A lot of the guys didn't have the longevity and those that did still have a shot like K.Nelson & B.Webb. I think Sexton/Ramon Flores/Augusto Martinez/CL Jiang/Badger are all going to make it in/Kazmir maybe as well as some others. Keep in mind we been going what 16 seasons its gonna take awhile to get the rediculous stats and longevity combined but we are getting there.
