    Maddux
    Clemens
    Glavine
    Smoltz
    (edit) R. Johnson

    Rivera?
    Hoffman?
    P. Martinez?

    Hitters

    Bonds
    A. Rodriguez
    I. Rodriguez

    Any 2Bs?

    Managers
    B. Cox
    T. LaRussa
    J. Torre (his considerable accomplishments as a player should also weigh in to this it seems).

    How about Schilling and Randy Johnson for pitchers?

    I knew I was forgetting a pitcher. Johnson, yes for sure. I'd say Schilling is a maybe.

    I wouldn't put Bonds as a definite. How many of those guys do you think will be first-balloters?

    I'd say first balloters will include:
    Maddux, Clemens, Johnson, I Rodriguez, Griffey, Jeter, and probably A. Rodriguez.

    Some of the others have careers that are yet young (Pujols, Guerrero), are not clearly first ballot (Smoltz, Glavine), or may be damaged by steroid scandal (Bonds, Sosa).

    I hope your wrong. I'd like to see Griffey be around for quite a while longer (healthy). He's been my favorite player for as long as I can remember.

    I didn't mean to infer he was leaving the game soon.
