Edgar’s HOF Vote Totals Increases Slightly
It’s Hall of Fame voting results day. Barry Larkin gets to celebrate while everyone else gets to wait another year, including Edgar. I’m not planning on writing a ton about this, because we’re probably a decade away from Edgar having any real shot of getting elected. It’s good news that his vote total rebounded from 32.9% to 36.5% after declining last year, but with the big wave of guys coming on the ballot beginning next year, he could very well drop back again in a year. He’s going to need those guys to all get out of his way before he has any real serious chance of election, so we’re probably looking at a 10+ year wait.
I think he deserves to get in. I hope he gets in someday. It just won’t be any time soon.
