Actually, 2 inductees wouldn't clear out the backlog. I'd be fine with that rule. But I actually think we should completely change the voting. Get rid of the BBWAA's right to vote. Have the Hall get a voting panel of about 100 people taken from both the ranks of the BBWAA and SABR (not stat geeks necessarily, but baseball historians -- SABR has a lot of non-stat oriented members). Then, they would submit an ordinal ballot of 10 names, like MVP voting. You rank the candidates on your ballots and weigh the vote. Top vote getters get inducted. I'd probably say the top two get in for the first five years to deal with the massive backlog, but also to see what a good vote score is. Then set that score as the bar for induction. Also, make it impossible to fall off the ballot. If someone wants to vote Dale Murphy in their top 10, let em do it. Also, just to get people to STFU, get rid of the rule that players on the permanent ban list are ineligible. Yes, make Rose eligible.
thanks for the expansion on my simplistic top two get in.
It forces the voter to accept there are those not in that deserve to be so, Im not saying LIMIT it to two.
Keep the pect at 75% but with the stipulation that regardless top two get in,, youll see,,, two or three get in with low 80's( voters voting for their obvious fav since SOMEONE is getting in) and maybe another one breach the 75%
