HOFWe are in an era when the BBWAA can?t get it together to elect any of nearly a dozen deserving candidates for the Hall of Fame through the usual channels, so the Veteran?s Committee nominees maybe take on more significance than usual these days.

And, given that the VC is, this year, dealing with the so-called ?Expansion Era? candidates (i.e. those from 1973-present), if there is going to be an induction of anyone who still alive next summer, this is the election that matters. Here are the candidates:

Dave Concepcion

Bobby Cox

Steve Garvey

Tommy John

Tony La Russa

Billy Martin

Marvin Miller

Dave Parker

Dan Quisenberry

Ted Simmons

George Steinbrenner

Joe Torre
