I was extremely suprised to see the complete lack of support for Joe Carter in the recent ballot -- he failed to get the 5% required to stay on the ballot next year. Here are his stats -vs- some other guys that will be on the ballot again...and I don't think that any of these guys ever had a walk off homer in the series (that one still hurts me to even think about it...Mitch Williams...what a loser )

----------------hits------HRs------RBIs-------average-------% support in HOF ballot

Carter----------2184---396------1445-------.259-----------3.8
Rice------------2452---382------1451-------.298-----------54.5
Dawson-------2774---438------1591-------.279-----------15
Parker---------2712---339------1493-------.290-----------10
Murphy--------2111---398------1197-------.265-----------8.5

It is amazing to me that Rice gets so much support -- look at his numbers -vs- Dawson
