Your 2015 MLB Hall of Fame Class: Craig Biggio, Tom Smoltz (who did not go in as a Detroit Tiger), Randy Johnson (who went in as an Arizona Diamondback), and Pedro Martinez.

Justin McGuire of The Sporting News live blogged the event on Sunday.

That aside, I should point out that it's a hell of an induction class. Johnson and Martinez are top 20 historical pitchers (top 15? top 10? top 5?), while Biggio was a nice career accumulator while playing multiple (difficult) positions, and Smoltz was a great pitcher who had an odd career usage pattern and some amazing teammates.

LOL. Oops. Don't know where the Tom came from. Administrators! Please hope me!

Don't hope him. Let him sofa.

Oh boy, terrible realization time: I think I went with Tom Smoltz because I heard a damn Boston song not too long before making this post.

This is cutting into Greg Biggio's moment in the spotlight.

I wonder if Craig Maddox and Ron Glavine were on hand when Schmaltz was enshrined.

Someone's got a rental Lexus trunk with your name on it NoMich.

NoMich will be OK. Maddux will be looking for him in the Upper Peninsula, not knowing that he's actually in North Caro...oh shit, stop, what am I doing?
