Taking a look at the 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot

The 2013 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot is out.

There are 37 names on the ballot.

Here are the players on the ballot who I think definitely belong in:

Jeff Bagwell
Craig Biggio
Barry Bonds
Roger Clemens
Mark McGwire
Rafael Palmeiro
Mike Piazza
Tim Raines
Alan Trammell

Here are the players who I don't know I'd vote for, but whose entry in the Hall of Fame would be fairly reasonable:

Edgar Martinez
Fred McGriff
Sammy Sosa
Larry Walker
Bernie Williams

Here are the players that I wouldn't vote for, but who, if you squint, you can make a case for:

Dale Murphy
Curt Schilling
Lee Smith

And the players I think definitely don't belong in:

Sandy Alomar Jr.
Jeff Cirillo
Royce Clayton
Jeff Conine
Steve Finley
Julio Franco
Shawn Green
Roberto Hernandez
Ryan Klesko
Kenny Lofton
Don Mattingly
Jose Mesa
Jack Morris
Reggie Sanders
Aaron Sele
Mike Stanton
Todd Walker
David Wells
Rondell White
Woody Williams

So, discuss below...who do you think belongs in the Baseball Hall of Fame, and who do you think belongs out? And is there anyone on either of my "definite" lists you think I'm completely off base on?
