    We'll have the largest Hall of Fame class since 1955 with four new Hall of Famers in Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio and John Smoltz. It's maybe the most impressive group elected by the BBWAA in a single year since 1947, when Carl Hubbell...

  6. Ranking this year's Hall of Fame candidates

    David Schoenfield

    This year's National League MVP vote promises to be an interesting result no matter who wins -- Clayton Kershaw, Andrew McCutchen or Giancarlo Stanton. If Kershaw wins, he'll be the first NL pitcher to win MVP honors since Bob Gibson in 1968; if McCu...
