In case you were curious:
Hall of Fame ballots with all 10 spots used: 51%, up from 50% last year and 22% in 2013. Average ballot had 8.4 votes.

Whatever. I feel like, even if you were a hardliner against PEDs, you could have still pretty easily found ten guys to vote for, but I guess 49% of the electorate didn’t think so.
Still, 8.4 votes per ballot is pretty good. Better than we’ve seen in the past. And that’s true even after you adjust for Darin Erstadian votes.
