Tonight, December 31, is the deadline for all eligible BBWAA voters to submit their Hall of Fame ballots.
My own ballot has already been cast and I voted for Mike Piazza, Craig Biggio, Edgar Martinez, Jeff Bagwell, Fred McGriff, Jack Morris, Don Mattingly and Tim Raines.
I know many Met fans will anxiously await the outcome of the vote with the earnest hope that Mike Piazza gets in as first ballot Hall of Famer.
Remember, a candidate must appear on 75 percent of the ballots in order to get elected.

We’ll all know the results in less than two weeks when the Class of 2013 for the National Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced on January 9.
Good luck, Mike.
