Breaking: Yankees acquire LHP James Paxton in exchange for LHP Justus Sheffield, RHP Erik Swanson, and OF Dom Thompson-Williams

The Yankees have made their first splash of the offseason by acquiring the Big Maple, James Paxton, from the Seattle Mariners. Fresh off his second-consecutive season at the top of the Mariner’s rotation, Paxton did not come cheap as the Yankees traded away their top prospect, Justus Sheffield, along with breakout prospects Erik Swanson and Dominic Thompson-Williams.

BBB mock Hall of Fame voting results


In light of the official Hall of Fame announcement, the BBB held a mock Hall of Fame ballot where our team sent in ballots to simulate a real HOF vote. Writers of the BBB were held to the same standards of the BBWAA; they could vote for no more than 10 players, but they did not have to vote for 10. To be elected, players on the ballot needed 75% of the vote, or at least 17 of 22 votes. After the results came in, we surprisingly only elected one member, Trevor Hoffman, with Vladimir Guerrero falling one vote short, and Ivan Rodriguez falling two votes short.


Below are the official results of those who received votes.

Trevor Hoffman: 81.81%

Vladimir Guerrero: 72.72%
Ivan Rodriguez: 68.18%
Jeff Bagwell: 59.09%
Mike Mussina: 54.54%
Barry Bonds: 54.54%
Roger Clemens: 54.54%
Tim Raines Jr. 54.54%
Sammy Sosa: 31.81%
Jorge Posada: 27.27%
Manny Ramirez: 22.72%
Curt Schilling: 22.72%
Gary Sheffield: 13.63%
Billy Wagner: 13.63%
Larry Walker: 9.09%
Fred McGriff: 4.54%
