What do they have to do call up players from the minor leagues?

That is just totally crazy. That is almost half the team.

I haven't been paying close attention to baseball but are these nominees really that bad? So far there are no positive responses.

No induction for 2023. Beltran had that great postseason with Astros one year but nothing great.

Rodriguez was a very good reliever, for a very short time. But not enough.

Looking at the stats the only one that has any chance is Carlos Beltran. 435 HR"s and 312 SB's so he was kind of a double threat of power and speed I guess.

I guess no one actually good retired that year? Most of those players shouldn’t even be in the top 30 of a years nominees.

If I had to pick one I’d go Krod as he was maybe the best closer in baseball for a few seasons. Six time all star, still holds the single season saves record, twice won the reliever of the year award. He wouldn’t be an awful choice.

Plus he had that great postseason where he won five games. That’s not easy to do as a reliever.

He’s also one of six pitchers to save 400 games. I’m talking myself into him being a good candidate actually.

He had five great years of 35 saves or more. I forgot that five years later then he had three more such seasons for Milwaukee actually.
