I would vote for only two players on the 2017 ballot: Mike Mussina and Vladimir Guerrero, a first timer on the ballot this year. They’re similar players: Neither logged an absolutely off-the-chart season, but both had long careers of sustained excellence. Guerrero never led the league in batting, RBI, or home runs, but hit .318 and averaged 34 homers and 113 RBI per season for 16 years. For Mussina’s record, see my posts of September 18, 2013 (The Cooperstown Case for Mike Mussina) and January 10, 2016 (Mussina v. Schilling).
To avoid ambiguity, I don’t advocate any player tainted by PED use or rumored as such. That’s why I don’t include Manny Ramirez and Ivan Rodriguez, first timers this year.
