Baseball Hall of Fame

This year's electees will be announced on Wednesday. MLB sent me a press release. Here's the pertinent info for those of you with the MLB channel...

The results of the 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame ballot will be announced exclusively on MLB Network and simulcast on on Wednesday, January 8 live at 2:00 p.m. ET. The announcement will be part of a three-hour live show beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET anchored by MLB Network’s Greg Amsinger, Brian Kenny and Heidi Watney, and including the first interviews with any electees immediately following the announcement, plus analysis from Bob Costas, Harold Reynolds, John Smoltz, Hall of Fame award-winning baseball writer Peter Gammons and Hall of Fame voters Jon Heyman, Ken Rosenthal, Joel Sherman and Tom Verducci, and segments analyzing the ballot from a sabermetric perspective.

Expect Greg Maddux to hear his name called. We'll see if his former teammate Tom Glavine gets the call too. I suspect Craig Biggio also has a shot.
