It’s that time of year when members of the Baseball Writers Association of America are casting their ballots for the Baseball Hall of Fame and, as always, controversy ensues.
ESPN’s Pedro Gomez is the latest BBWAA member to be scrutinized for his ballot, which was released on Twitter on Monday.
While one could make the argument that the four players Gomez voted for are worthy of the honor, it’s the players he omitted that caused a stir amongst fellow baseball writers.
Judging from his ballot, it appears Gomez has no interest in voting for players linked to steroid use. And while every voter is entitled to their own opinion, there’s no question that Gomez left multiple players deserving of the Hall of Fame off his ballot.
