2013 Hall of Fame odds

The Linemakers at Sporting News have compiled their odds (even though, they admit, you cannot wager on Hall of Fame inductions). Their results?

Craig Biggio - 7/2 odds
Jeff Bagwell - 5/1 odds

I'm not a gambler so I could be wrong, but I think that equates to a 20% chance for Bagwell and a 28.6% for Biggio.

Biggio needs to be above 50%. No member of the 3,000 hit club has not been inducted, and usually very quickly.

That's not true. Neither Pete Rose, nor Rafael Palmeiro are in the Hall of Fame.

Well, and Derek Jeter, but he is still active.

Pete Rose has been inducted.

Oh, you meant the baseball Hall of Fame?

(But seriously, I think Rose will get into Cooperstown posthumously. Eventually.)
