Bert Blyleven

Well once again Bert did not get inducted into the Hall of Fame and he actually received less 17 votes this year than last. Hopefully next year without Tony Gwynn or Cal Ripken Jr. in the voting, that Bert can pick up some steam and maybe get the recognition he deserves.

On a side note former Cub (though wasn't too good when he was here), Goose Gossage looks like he should garner enough votes next year to make the Hall of Fame. He went from 336 to 388 in votes and only needs to get 21 more votes to get in. Andre Dawson lost 8 votes from 317 to 309, but with next year's weaker induction class he also may receive a big increase in votes.

Good luck to all 3 as they are all deserving in my book.
