We noticed a curious thing when looking over the results of our Baseball Hall of Fame ballot -- if SportsNation voted for the Hall, no one on this year's list of candidates would reach the threshold of 75 percent necessary for induction. It may be that SN's opinion reflects that of the actual voters, as public ballots reflect a similar ambivalence about the 2013 class. We've collected some of the biggest names on the first-time candidate list to see what your predictions are for their Hall chances. Remember, it's not about whether you'd vote for them, it's whether you think the writers will.
