-What recently retired players do you believe will get into Cooperstown?
-What players do you think should be in even though they aren't?
-Any current players that you believe will make the hall of fame?
To get it started, I'll bring up Bernie Williams..I think eventually he will get in, but will not be close to a first ballot hof'er...Anyone else have an opinion?
And does anyone believe Roger Maris will eventually get put in?

However I dont think Maris will (even though he held the HR record for 30+ years) due to I would think he would have been let in by now. I grew up in the 80's and the two I'm suprised that have not been let in is my first favorite player Ron Guidry and the fan favorite Don Mattingly. I think Jeter and Mo will be a first time inductees. I also think Pettitte will be eventually be allowed in.

I love the scooter but he just does not have the numbers to put him where he is at. There are many who should not be in the HOF but at the risk of hurting ones feelings i'll stay mute on that subject but as far as who should be in the HOF Pete Rose and Shoeless Joe Jackson.
