Reaction to Bagwell's HOF voting

So let's do a little Twitter round-up of the reaction to Bagwell's 41.7% showing:

Brian McTaggart (quoting Brad Ausmus):
"I think he'll get in eventually and I think he deserves to get in."

Buster Olney:
Jeff Bagwell's vote percentage is stunningly low for someone who clearly has Hall of Fame numbers -- but tied to no evidence of PED use.

Zach Levine:
Bagwell total should rise next year. Saw with Alomar what a huge number of first-ballot "protectionists" there still are.

Alyson Footer:
Disappointing day for Astros fans, but not terribly surprising. A 41% showing in first year is very, very encouraging.
