2015 Candidates

Like this 1971 Topps coin compared to cards, Cito Gaston is different from other candidates this election.

Well, we’ve finally reached the last election of our opening phase. After this week, we’re going to look at the Golden Era ballot, propose what we’d have liked from the ballot, and then share our HoME managerial process moving forward.

As for this election, we’re dealing with an elite group. There’s a reason that Bobby Cox, Joe Torre, and Tony LaRussa got into the Hall of Fame together in 2014. Lou Piniella is in some ways a Tim Raines to Rickey Henderson. Actually, he’s more of a Ted Simmons to Johnny Bench/Gary Carter/Carlton Fisk. He was excellent in many ways but behind the very best of his time. Jack McKeon might have been a Hall-level manager had he not received a mid-career promotion to GM. And then there’s Cito Gaston. He won a couple of titles.

Unlike the last election, these guys won a ton. Together they won a dozen World Series and lost nine more. This is an outstanding group indeed. Let’s take a look.
