Jason Isringhausen

Jason Isringhausen
As part of the New York Mets’ “Generation K”, much was expected of Jason Isringhausen and though he did not meet expectations as a Starting Pitcher, he did become a very effective Relief Pitcher, making two All Star Games, and leading the National League in Saves in 2004. Isringhausen would record 300 career Major League Saves in total, and another 11 in the Post Season.

If I Had a Vote in the 2018 Baseball Hall of Fame Election

Strategic voting. What you have to do when you have too many choices and not enough time or opportunities to realize all those choices.

Sounds like voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame for the last few years, doesn't it?

The good news is that since the Shutout of 2013, when the eligible members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) could not muster the 75 percent of the vote necessary to elect any one ballot candidate to the Hall of Fame despite a wealth of candidates from whom to choose (I counted 14), the BBWAA has sent a dozen players to Cooperstown. Based on that trend, and barring any unusual or unforeseen wrinkle, the writers are certain to elect at least one player for 2018.
