Adrian Beltre is a lock. Any thoughts about others.

I guess I was asleep when you posted this, but Beltre is the standout to me from this ballot, too.

Neither El Titan or Chase Utley have been discussed - I doubt either will make it but I know they were favorites of yours, Linda.

I am surprised Joe Mauer is not mentioned either - as a catcher he definitely has the numbers. Would be nice to see someone from a small market team go in and he is one of the really "good guys" of the game.

You're right, Cath. They were solid guys, above standard, but as far as I can tell not quite HOF quality.

Joe Mauer is most likely to go in, as well.

We will know tomorrow.

And it's finally for Todd Helton! I wasn't quite expecting that but I won't argue with it.

Congratulations, Adrian, Joe and Todd--Class of 2024 Hall of Fame.

Wish the Dodgers had better ownership when Beltre was hitting his peak. I wish he could have retired a Dodger, or at least we could have enjoyed more of his career in L.A.

Congratulations to the inductees.

Yes, congratulations.

I suppose I was a bit surprised about Todd Helton. Not that he was not deserving, but he had been on the ballot several years. I had been hearing comments about how his numbers were inflated by Coors Field but I remember him hitting well away from Coors Field, too. I felt like overall his career was consistently good enough, but he kept being passed over. So, since Colorado does not get a lot of positive attention for baseball I thought I would say I was glad he made it in.
