● 2019 HALL OF FAME BALLOTING RESULTS ●   still no Omar, yet.

Elections to the National Baseball Hall of Fame for 2019 proceeded according to rules most recently amended in 2016. As in the past, the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) voted by mail to select from a ballot of recently retired players. The results were announced on January 22, 2019, with the BBWAA electing Mariano Rivera, Roy Halladay, Edgar Martínez and Mike Mussina to the Hall of Fame. Rivera and Halladay were elected in their first year of eligibility, while Martínez was elected in his last year of eligibility. Rivera became the first player to be unanimously elected, appearing on all ballots.

 The Today's Game Era Committee, one of four voting panels that since 2016 have taken over the role of the more broadly defined Veterans Committee,[2][3] convened on December 9, 2018 to select from a ballot of retired players and non-playing personnel who made their greatest contributions to the sport after 1987,[3] with Harold Baines and Lee Smith elected by this body.[4] The formal induction ceremony will be held at the Hall's facilities in Cooperstown, New York on July 21, 2019.[5]

A look ahead from SI:

2020
Top newcomers:
 Derek Jeter, Bobby Abreu, Jason Giambi, Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn, Cliff Lee

Top holdovers: Mussina, Bonds, Clemens, Schilling, Walker, Vizquel

Most likely to be elected: Jeter, Mussina (in)
Falling off: Walker

2021
Top newcomers:
 Tim Hudson, Torii Hunter, Aramis Ramirez, Dan Haren, Mark Buehrle
Top holdovers: Bonds, Clemens, Schilling, Vizquel
Most likely to be elected: Schilling
Falling off: none

2022
Top newcomers: 
Alex Rodriguez, David Ortiz, Jimmy Rollins Mark Teixeira, Prince Fielder, Jonathan Papelbon, Joe Nathan
Top holdovers: Bonds, Clemens, Vizquel Rolen, Helton, Kent, Sheffield
Most likely to be elected: Bonds, Clemens
Falling off: Sosa

.....The modest crop will leave a lot of room for holdovers, though we shouldn't expect the fervor that has greeted ballots over the past five years, during which voters have included at least 7.95 names per ballot, breaking the modern record three times. Still, Vizquel could be well over 50% by this point, even with a whole lot of analytically-minded voters less than convinced of his merits. .......

2023
Top newcomers:
 Carlos Beltran, Ichiro Suzuki, Chase Utley, Bartolo Colon, Francisco Rodriguez
Top holdovers: *Vizquel, Rolen, Helton, Sheffield
Most likely to be elected: Ortiz, Beltran, Suzuki
Falling off: Kent

I wish I knew where the candidacies of Rolen, Helton, Jones, Sheffield, Wagner and Vizquel were going, but five years requires more crystal ball polish than is currently on the shelf at my local hardware store. What I do know is that with 11 candidates projected for election over this span, we'll see a lower concentration than in these five historic years, while still leaving room for a surprise or two. I can't wait to see how it plays out.

Yes, I was looking for a compact list and SI had this one. Many are waaaaay to long to put up with descriptions on every player. More updated lists will come out as time goes on.

And if Bonds and Clemens miss getting in Visquel has a maybe 40/60, 50/50 whatever chance of slipping in but with this voting system I wouldn't hold my breath.
