The only poll that counts is the final tally and the published results.

Ortiz might get in, but no one else will this year.

This. The numbers always go down when the final results, including those who didn't share their ballots, are tallied. I can't say I'm surprised by this. Ortiz is beloved by many (even though I'm not a big fan), while A Rod is not. A Rod, though, was clearly the better player. So, given that they're both known to have done PEDs, why is Big Papa getting a pass and A Rod not? The voters need to make up their damn minds on how they view PED use. It should definitely not come down to arbitrary decisions.

ARod admitted it, right? Ortiz is still in that fuzzy land of sort of denying it. As for their relative abilities, based on stats anyhow, ARod you could argue is a top 10 all time player. Ortiz off the top of my head is probably 75-100.

I think Peter may be commenting about Vizquel in light of the recent sexual abuse allegations that had come out about him.

Someone recently said, "it's the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Saints."

And before that it was his wife accusing him of abuse, right? Anyhow seems Omar's chances are nil at this point.

His vote total is next to nothing, after he had been moving up each year.
