Jack Morris came in second place with 66.6% of the vote and has inched closer to the magical 75% needed for induction. I predict Morris will get inducted either in 2013 or 2014, which will be his last year of eligibility. Over the past four years his votes have been-- 2009 (44%), 2010 (52.3%), 2011 (53.5%) and 2012 (66.6%). The huge jump from 2011 to 2012 indicates that the voters are warming up to him and will vote him in before his eligibility expires. And of course, 2013 marks the first year of eligibility for the core members of the steroids crew (Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa) which should help Morris because those guys AIN'T (I repeat, AIN'T) getting in.
As for the other steroid suspects already on the ballot--

That is why in 2013-- no Bonds, no Clemens and no Sosa. Period!
