Maddux, Glavine, Thomas elected
Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in the 2014 class. Maddux in particular received 97.2 percent of the vote, the eighth-highest total of all time. It makes you wonder exactly what the 16 Hall of Fame voters who left him off their ballots were thinking, particularly if they were the voter who cast a ballot for Armando Benitez or Jacque Jones. We're also hurting for poor Craig Biggio, who fell a mere two votes short of the required 75 percent for Hall induction. As always, the logic of some voters, while fun to talk about, is impenetrable -- which, according to him, is part of the reason ESPN's Dan Le Batard handed his vote to Deadspin.
