With the Hall Of Fame election announcement coming on January 9, 2012, it is time to review the ballot, go over the names, and decide who belongs in the Hall Of Fame.
There are twenty seven men on the ballot this year and we will take a look at each one individually prior to official announcements. You can find all of the profiles in the I-70 Baseball Exclusives: Cooperstown Choices 2012 menu at the top of the page.
Tune in Saturday, January 7, 2012 as I-70 Baseball Radio will host a panel of writers discussing the Hall Of Fame Ballot in a 2-hour special.
In this article, we take a look at Bernie Williams.
Bernie patrolled center field in the Bronx for sixteen seasons, spending his entire career with the New York Yankees. A young man who made his debut in 1991 and played his final game in 2006, this will be the first year that Bernie appears on the ballot.

All I can say is thank goodness for the New York Post because if the paper’s latest report is true the 2012 New York Yankees are in for a stellar season.
The feature story in the weekly Pulse pullout titled “It’s Crystal Clear” gives psychics predictions for the upcoming year.

Torre resigned his executive position with Major League Baseball to join Los Angeles...
When an actor in Hollywood takes on an iconic role, the biggest concern for that actor is the possibility of becoming typecast, in other words so identified with that role and character that audiences, and more importantly movie producers, lose the ability to see the actor as any other character. The late Christopher Reeve, who starred in four separate Superman movies in...
Making a New Year’s resolution is a time-honored tradition, and after going to the gym today I can tell you that it is still done, as it was jammed packed.
Certain resolutions are irresolvable; such as I will never win a World Series for the obvious reason that I am female. Regardless, the majority of living men in the world today are not even remotely talented enough to play in...
The Yankees aren’t likely to sign Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima by Friday’s 4pm CDT deadline, one person with knowledge of the situation told Marc Carig of the Star Ledger. The Yankees see Nakajima as a bench player and intend to pay him like a backup, Carig reports on Twitter.
In theory, the Yankees have until Friday evening to sign Nakajima. However, they’d have...
The Yankees were not interested in courting starter C. J. Wilson this off-season, but they could be more aggressive next winter, when the free-agent starters should be much more appealing.
The name "Michael LaPayower" may not ring a bell, but his past Internet reputation might. Back in 2010, the big New York Yankees fan won his 15 minutes of Internet fame, being mocked on sites like Deadspin for his pinstriped-parody of a Lady Gaga song.
Now the man with the @bigyankeesfan Twitter handle is back and trying to get in on the next go-round of the MLB Fan Cave...

The Yankees “desperately” want to add a #2 starter to their rotation according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. And the two leading candidates should be very familiar to Rays fans.
