The Veterns Committee finalists ballot was released today. Take a look - who do you think has a chance? Bill Maz went in last year.

1. Curt Flood - great numbers, great career. My opinion - will get a serious look from the committee.

2. Rocky Colavito - don't knock the Rock. Also deserving.

3. Gil Hodges - long overdue for a spot in Cooperstown.

The rest of the bunch - Roger Maris, Ted Kluszewski, Thurman Munson, Don Newcombe, Allie Reynolds, Joe Torre, & Maury Wills.

My prediction - Gil Hodges!
