This year, of all years, was the point where baseball writers threw up their hands and said "I give up." Every interview I heard on the radio and saw on tv with the writers echoed the same sentiment..."how can we do this?". Next year's vote is a slam dunk. This is what the writers want. I think Maddux, Frank and Glavine all go in next year.
