HOF ballot unveiled
2007-11-26 14:00
by Bob Timmermann

Let the lobbying begin!

The Baseball Hall of Fame has released its ballot for its main election by the BBWAA. The votes are due by December 31 and the results will be released January 8.

Besides the usual suspects of Rich Gossage, Bert Blyleven, Jim Rice, Andre Dawson, and Jack Morris, there are newcomers such as:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jose Rijo, who was already on the ballot in 2001 and got one vote, is back on the ballot because he pitched in the majors in 2002. Rod Beck's 5-year waiting period to appear on the ballot was waived because of his death.

O.K., without peeking, #2 is David Justice.

Baines. Justice, and...garlic?

Pretty sure that's garlic, but that's not helping me figure out the clue. I'm slow today. I'm going to blame all the leftover turkey I've been eating.

So far (David) Justice is the only correct answer.

I wanted to say the first was Claude Rains (which would get to Tim Raines), but that guy looks too young

For the third I think Fryman? (fried garlic?)

What a dope-I meant Raines.

ABreck-it's Jeff Goldblum. His show is "Raines" and he talks to dead people-hence the ghost-or at least his brain tells him he does.

I also thought of Fryman, but Garlic isn't always fried.

There are now 2 of 3 correct.

Is this the first Toaster entry done like a Rebus?

Is Rijo a Spanish word for garlic?

Garlic in Spanish is "ajo"

I think I once heard that Knobloch is German for garlic. (Since my German is mostly limited to what I learned reading old WWII comics, I'm not sure if vockins' comment in 11 already alluded to this.)

There you go. "Knoblauch" is the German word for garlic.

Mein hut es hat drie Ecken,
drie Ecken hat mein hut,
und hat es nicht drie Ecken,
so war es nicht mein hut

I think we have all drie

16 I don't think anyone has drie. Wenn dein Hut drie Ecken hätte, sei es sicherlich kein Hut!

Chuck Garlic should've been his name, so much better. Then some fans could've worn him around their neck to ward off playoff losses.

Chuck Knoblauch is heavily lobbying for the removal of Keith Olberman's mom from the BBWAA.
