Bagwell for the HOF? Yahoo takes a look

Random, spotty updates abound until later tonight, but here Yahoo takes a gander at Bagwell's HOF candidacy.

To sum up:
During his career, Bagwell was never the best first baseman in baseball: First it was Frank Thomas, then briefly it was Mark McGwire, and then it was Albert Pujols. All have strong cases for the Hall, and Bagwell will have to hope he isn't penalized by voters for having too many talented colleagues. Fortunately, he retired before most of his peers, so he'll have a few years' head start. So he will have to hope that he can get voted in before their names start to appear on the ballot.

We'll have more on this when the time is right.
