Newsletter Excerpt, January 23, 2024 -- "The Voting"


This is a preview of the Joe Sheehan Baseball Newsletter, an e-mail newsletter about all things baseball, featuring analysis and opinion about the game on and off the field from the perspective of the informed outsider.

You can subscribe to the newsletter for one year for $79.95 using your PayPal account or major credit card.

"Looking ahead, you’ll have 1,237 ballot slots open up next year (Beltre, Helton, Mauer, Sheffield, one-and-dones), and just one obvious Hall of Famer coming on in Ichiro. CC Sabathia, who will have strong support, also becomes eligible. Felix Hernandez seems like someone who sticks around for a few years, maybe Dustin Pedroia as well. By and large, though, it will be a good year for holdovers to pick up votes from those voters who look to fill out their ballots."
