Look at Harold Baines stats and you will see that he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He is in the Top 50 All Time in many statistical categories.

When was this vote? I don't see Albert Belle on any lists past 2007 when he fell off. And McGwire only fell off in 2016. I highly doubt a committee would vote on him again so soon.

Since there's already two juicers in now, can't see any reason to keep McGwire out.

Best,
