There aren't any clear cut first ballot guys on this year's writers ballot.

https://www.baseball-reference.com/awar ... 2021.shtml

The ballot:

Curt Schilling
Roger Clemens
Barry Bonds
Omar Vizquel
Scott Rolen
Billy Wagner
Gary Sheffield
Todd Helton
Manny Ramirez
Jeff Kent
Andruw Jones
Sammy Sosa
Andy Pettitte
Bobby Abreu

Mark Buehrle
AJ Burnett
Michael Cuddyer
Dan Haren
Latroy Hawkins
Tim Hudson
Torii Hunter
Aramis Ramirez
Nick Swisher
Shane Victorino
Barry Zito

According to the HOF website, there will not be any Special Era (Veterans) Committee candidates considered this year. They will resume in December, 2021 with both the Golden Days (1950-69) committee and Early Baseball (prior to 1950) committee scheduled to meet.

My ballot for this year would include Schilling, Vizquel, Kent, Wagner and Pettitte.

Agreed, much harder than in previous years. My ballot is Helton and Rolen.

While he's a bit of a nut job, Schilling has some pretty impressive stats. Career bWAR is 26th all-time for pitchers, and has the best career K:BB ratio of any pitcher with at least 3000 K's. His 83 career complete games, including 15 in 1998, is pretty impressive for the post-1990 era.

Take away the off-the-field stuff, and Schilling is a shoe-in for the hall.

It's much harder to find 10 than it was a couple of years ago, but I managed to do it.

Four easy ones (I'm in the 'let them in' camp except for Sosa)
Bonds
Clemens
Schilling
Rolen

Next tier (probably should get in but fine if they don't):
A. Jones
Manny Ramirez
Helton

Third tier (probably shouldn't get in but would like to keep on the ballot):
Buehrle
Tim Hudson
Bobby Abreu
